  1. Digitalj, Thanks for your interest. Model number for this Wintal set is WLD 1948. A considerable irritant is that the accompanying "manuals" are very brief, written in Chinglish and replete with strings of letters and acronyms which presuppose high level training in state of the art electronics. The only recourse for help is to call a Melbourne number where one gets very friendly assistance. Trouble is I am 2000 km away and my mind is an electronic wasteland. Hence my seeking the help of the good folk here. This query re "encryption" is to try to get some understanding of what is wrong. I still have to follow up previous advice re the state of my antenna and cabling. pomozwi
  2. there's no encryption taking place, I suggest replacing the STB. Sorry, no set top box involved. This is a digital TV of the LCD variety.
  3. Apologies for being so sparing in detail. I got good reception (some ghosting) via the analogue TV I have had for many years. When I got a digital set I shut down the analogue one altogether and plugged in the digital one to the same wall plate so there is no signal splitting between the two. Perhaps it is also relevant that I feed the signal to the digital set via a DvD recorder/player as I did with the old analogue set. pomozwi

  5. My apologies for the late response to the above. I had followed AlanH's suggestion that I stick to the Brisbane page, so failed to see yor and mtv's suggestions. My sincere thanks to you both. I have read the links given by you Charlesc and learned much. Could you speculate on the observation that I get good reception on my analogue TV and good dry weather performance on my new digital set but generally poor aqnalogue reception on the digital receiver no matter what the weather. My thanks again pomozwi
  6. First of all, thank you AlanH for directing me to the right part of this site. You must be endlessly at the beck and call of those in need of your skills and knowledge. Having read as best I can the pages for Brisbane (I am in Middle Park) I tentatively conclude that I need a technician who can assess the signal strength I am receiving and go from there. I shall re-read though when I am a bit more alert before acting. Pomozwi
  7. Hello, Just registered and my first post. I only hope it is in the right part of the site!! My frustration is largely with the weather. My Wintal TV normally brings in all the Brisbane TV channels (except 31) perfectly well. BUT... if it gets foggy then channels 7 and 9 get flaky. If it actually rains even lightly, these channels disappear completely and SBS gets pixelated, channel 10 might too. ABC shines through at all times. I am in effective line of sight of the transmission towers at Mt Coot Tha but do admit to an external antenna which is about 18 years old. This weather phenomenon has probably been aired here many times and I apologise if I needlessly raise the subject again but my, perhaps clumsy, search of the site did not dredge up anything I could identify with. Sage advice will be very welcome. Pomozwi
