Re: Any UK users in here Please - Pretty Please :)
Thanks for replying its at least some comfort to know someone reads and will reply to the threads.
No luck here getting any channels scanned using Auto or Manual.
More feedback is needed from UK & Ireland owners before we can reach any conclusions as we might both have broken boxes or it could be the DVR just isnt compatable with our TV broadcast systems. I would hope the staff tested ( at least a simulated test ) the signal system used in UK and Ireland.
If any European users can chip in and lets us know which countries are having success and failure may also help (possibly a new thread to gauge the DVR reliability and compatability).
Any staff wish to chip in and assure us its just a firmware glitch ???
Having waited so long to get the DVR I am somewhat reluctant to request an RMA as it does not work to a level to justify the cost we paid and is not working as advertised.
I have managed to tune in the UK (Winter Hill post DSO).
I started the auto tune but got impatient (Winter Hill is C/D so all channels are at the top end!!!)
and went to manual tune.
2 things to note:
1. you need to set the channel size to 8Mhz
2. the channel number listed does NOT match the channel numbers you may be familiar with (ie 21-68)
I am unsure to their numbering system but look at the raw frequency:
Ch 21 is 474Mhz
Ch 68 is 850Mhz
to get the others, simply add/subtract the multiple of 8Mhz (ie Ch22 is 482Mhz)
finally, I could not INITIALLY get the correct frequency range to correspond, it was stating around the 100Mhz - 200Mhz ish. I'm not quite sure how I rectified this but I *think* I went back and reset the country to the UK - then going to manual tune I could now select the frequency in the UK range as listed above.
Just as a confirmation THE UNIT WILL NOT RECEIVE DVB-T2 TRANSMISSIONS IE BBCHD, 4HD ETC
which is a massive shame
If there is no plans to deliver a retrofit T2 tuner then this is (sadly) a show stopper for me
shame, I really want to like this bit of kit
to get the higher channels, go BACKWARDS on the channel numbers (ie use arrow LEFT instead of the "natural" arrow right), the value rolls back to the top end which allows you access to the manual channels you need
