Cyprus Digital Terrestrial TV

Postby BigDutch » Wed Jan 19, 2011 11:51 am

Invested in a new panel last week so have now tuned in 11 local TV stations, including 4' digital' and the rest whilst 'analogue' reception is good on most.

Anyone aware of the official plan/schedule for going 100% digital, and specifically when there will be an EPG ?

I have a TV with a digital tuner (antenna or cable) and can identify some stations off the arial, and get sound, but cannot get a picture: any hints?

Trying a digital channel also resets the clock to about 7 minutes out but for year 2016: any ideas on how to solve?

You can't fudge it, you will need a box.

Some TVs have upgradeable firmware done via an internet link, wireless link, or special cable.

It’s those models that look exactly like the one you bought only this was about $200 more expensive so at the time you thought to your self…

“Screw that! I can’t see any difference… I’ll take the cheaper one thanks!”

:lol:

Post your brand and model (<- label on the back of the TV) and I’ll check for you if you like.

Thanks.

Sony KDL 40L4000

We just wanted a cheapish TV at the time, mostly for kids to watch DVD's. I wasn't aware (a) that it had a DVB T tuner (b) that there were diffrences in Standards.


Much Appreciated.
