    • Agree MLXXX ;even with the lesser bandwidth of streaming shows like Marco polo; Orange is the new black when received in HDR has that colour space and contrast advantage if your panel is up to it  8BIT cant quite cope .. The Netflix CPO  Neil Hunt  "anticipates that 5 percent of content will be available in HDR in a year, ramping up to 20 percent by 2019 for those who have the capability to receive it."

    • Where the Netflix version is being streamed in UHD, as is possible with House of Cards, I'd expect Blu-ray to offer better quality sound, but not necessarily better looking video. A similar situation can arise as regards video quality when viewing a movie in Full HD from the net, compared  with viewing the same movie in SD from a DVD.

    • Pietro, http://www.freeview.com.au/tv-guide/ and select  Albury/Wodonga (ABC Transmission channel 11) will give you the channel numbers which should appear according to the logical channel numbers that the broadcasters transmit. You have not specified exactly where you are. There are a number of translators in the coverage area including North Albury ABC transmission channel 31 as well as others in the mountain areas. When you scan it starts at channel 6 when it gets to channel 7 it receives Logical channel numbers 3, 30, 32, 33, 34 embeded in the signal this process repeats with GLV channel 8 ("Nine" owned by Southern CrossAustereo), then channel 9 and 9A are vacant, followed by VTV channel 10 (WIN), ABC on channel 11 and lastly AMV 12 (Prime7). Scanning continues if it finds transmission channels 28 - 32 the process is repeated with the same logical channel numbers. Receivers complying with the Australian Standard will store those with the best signal and allocate the others to logical channel numbers 350 - 399. Team Mediaportal does not comply with Australian Standards so they use channel numbers instead it labels any logical number it deos not understand with 1000. In the TV server Configuration menu/TV channels I just ticked the ones I want. So for example on SBS I have no tick on SBS One but SBSHD is ticked. I did not worry about the channel numbers because the names are correct.  If you have two tuners you will have to scan both. On the TV mapping menu the available channels should be the ones you dont want and the ones you want should be mapped to the card. Do both tuners so that you can watch one and record from the other or record two different broadcasters simultaneously. In DVB EPG /TV Epg Grabber I have ticked the same channels as above. You will no doubt select programs from the TV guide or channel both use program names. So in short, on the 6th December, do an all channel scan and forget about the channel number 1000, because it has already read the labels. If you wish you could stop the scan once it jumps to channel 27. Alanh
