  1. I only wish Foxtel would dump the IQ and get a custom built Cable STB from TiVo, TiVo shits all over the Pace anytime.


    * User friendly Interface

    * Records programs properly

    * Provides detailed EPG Information for Movies/TV Series/Docos etc...

    * Made by a reputable company which is recognised worldwide

    * Proper HD

    * Enhanced recording capacity 320GB Internal Hard Drive + External 1TB Hard Drive (Optional)

    * Enhanced Broadband and "On Demand" services

    Foxtel IQ: (Pace BS)

    * Terrible UI

    * Limited recording capacity...only 320GB

    * EPG reminds me of the TV Guide found in most newspapers...very little info

    * Interactive features are quite slow and often unstable

    * STB crashes anytime of the day and often at the most inconvenient times (Especially Crapsatellite)

  2. Just like the other secondary channels - so many old sitcoms that weren't even that good back in the day. :(

    I thought Eleven was supposed to be "Distinctively Youthfull".

    I'm only 20 and shows like Happy Days, Jag and Macgyver aren't from our generation, older people may disagree but we didn't grow up with any of it.

  3. Good spot for DAB+ reception out there. Sounds like an awful implementation of DAB+ by Sony, to not unlock the many great features of the technology is poor.

    I've personally used it found the Audio Quality was way better than My Revo Uno.

    However I was appalled that the DAB+ features were quite minimal

    * No Program Information Display eg. Music Information or News/Weather Updates.

    * Lack of Signal/Frequency Information.

    * No Ability to be used as a recorder considering how big it is.

    * It has a CD Player which is kind of 1999 to me but atleast it's convienient to have on board.

    * iPod/iPhone Dock looks messy, should be a seperate module. (To be included in the package of course)

  4. What a difference a day makes, PQ is noticeably better today. Still no substitute for HD but not the awful blur it was on Friday. I'm guessing that many of the cameras they're using are HD cameras as there is a difference in PQ between them and the result is sharper picture, better contrast and more apparent depth. I'm still going to record the FOX replay so I can compare them.

    Would it be possible for you to please provide some cap's

    since your going on about the 7 and FOX HD broadcast will be different.


  5. The FTA networks should have done away with the legacy analogue channel numbers with the move to digital and just used two digit codes with channel name branding, e.g. GEM and GO etc. But hey, FTA in this country just lives in the past.

    We should be surprised to know (sarcasm) SBS and C31 have moved into the 21st century and done so.

    Didn't we used to goto channel 28 for SBS One and 31 for C31, when now it's LCN 03 for SBS ONE and (44 for C31 how stupid :wacko:)

  6. But the problem with a themed channel is that unless the HD content is designed for the target market it won't be shown on the HD channel which is stupid. The FTA networks have the potential for a HD multi-channel so why can't they just wake up and show as much HD content as possible regardless of what it is!

    Nat Geo HD and Discovery HD do just that so why the f*ck can't the FTA networks get a clue and do just that????????????

    Themed channels targeting a specific market are great if you're creating SD multi-channels, but not if you're using your one and only HD channel!

    Mostly our FTA's are backwards thinking, just like the management of DTV here whether it be Foxtel/FTA.

  7. I think when 7mate starts channel 70 (60 regional) will dissapear don't know why they did'nt do what ABC did with their HD channel, the HD stays on its original LCN until it's retuned then it disappears.

    Does it really matter where a HD channel is placed?

    No ABC HD was redirected to LCN 24; However if you didn't rescan your TV/STB it would show ABC News 24 on LCN 20 because ABC used the same parameters as ABC HD for News 24.

    Keep in mind as to what yabbal stated in an earlier post.

    Nobody get's the idea of what LCN's are used for. :angry2:

  8. Taylor said 3D was not on the cards for T-Box "in the first instance" but HD movies would be offered by the end of the year.

    Just reinforces the lack of foresight into 3DTV over Internet, just wait for the NBN to come and you'll have people screaming for it.

    NBN could have more bandwidth than the Digital FTA Multiplexes :P
