By the time you buy one 8K will be out :-lol


But can our ageing eyes discern much difference?

I used to consider Audio THD important until my hearing went tits up!

Rule of thumb: Acknowledge technological advance; Wait until cost drops towards 200 sovs; Wait until the Sales.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Im more than a bit surprised to discover my UH650V has an analogue tv tuner in it! Handy to patch into the distribution system for the satellite boxes though :D

Or if you get hold of a Band I tv antenna you could receive some of the remaining analogue stuff from Eastern Europe during a sporadic E opening ?!

Got a couple of new LG TVs in the house over the last few months, so out of interest I had a look over the weekend whether I could lock the DVB-S2X TF1 Suisse transponder on 33°E (finally live somewhere with an unobstructed view from the garden past about 19.2°E!)

Couldn't lock the transponder on either TV, the only stuff that I got was the standard DVB-S2 France 24 HEVC transponder and the mainly encrypted Polsat Polish DVB-T feed one. Edision IP S2 also happily picked up the Bulgarian multistream.

I wonder if they're using different chips in the newest range of LGs that don't support S2X any more, or 12597 is just weaker than the other stuff and I wasn't quite aligned properly. The 25/36 FEC would be fractionally somewhere between 2/3 and 3/4 in terms of required C/N I presume so shouldn't be too difficult in theory.

On Edision Mio 4K the DVB-S2X TF1 Suisse transponder on 33°E works here.
SNR 78% = 11.6 dB
AGC 88%
FEC -> Auto

You could whip the back off the set and take some pictures of the chipset numbers.

A quick search brings up this.


Tuner can has EBL61920303 written on it and is a dual DVBT2 and S2

My mobile phone does not recognise the Aztec code on the lid, apart from giving the number 2004B0613 at the base, plus 0016342
