    • The other thing to think of is the antenna system itself...The Masthead amp may be having a problem passing the lower end of the band. It does sound like a roll off problem somewhere...
    • Believe it or not the sound is better than the current flagships RX-A3050 / 3060 (which incidentally I own). In fact on the sound quality and presence side I have yet to hear something better at least from the Yamaha stable.  Anyone getting this unit will thank me from the bottom of their heart. It really is that good!!! +1 for j19801110
    • Not sure why this would be the case. NBNCo is building its fibre network (including the one the FTTN plugs into) a fairly small number of POI (Point of Interconnect). Presumably NBNCo is ensuring this back end network can handle all the data that will be flowing around Australia (buying various fibre already laid by Telstra, Optus etc.). The ISPs only have to connect into one POI to have access to all POIs in the NBN network. Obviously they will connect by fibre between their servers and the NBN POI. It seems inconceivable that ISPs haven't laid enough fibre to handle this bandwith with ease? Unless the ISPs have not yet made their own fibre connection and are instead using (renting) Telstra, Optus fibre. In this case they could be being cheap skates and buying insufficient bandwidth to meet peek demands? I'd have thought all ISPs would be looking to set up near a POI and connect in with a huge bundle of their own fibre. But this would take some time. Regards Peter Gillespie  
    • Hi, I'll have a look. I had one of the bar types in 1998, only analogue TV then of course, can't remember if it worked OK or not. The DX looks like my current Jack antenna, but with "rabbit ears". Funnily enough, the best antenna I've had was an old set of rabbit ears which I mounted on a long painters pole, that was about 2011, and used with a Topfield 5000 PVR. HW-DT8 Antenna Mark 3 UHF/VHF looks interesting. Thanks, dRdoS7
    • Well I have tried a new antenna and Seven has improved but no where near perfect, still get some pixelation. When I look at the signal on my TVs Digial setup , all channels except for CH6 (Seven) are 10 signal strength and 9 or 10 on quality. Channel 6 (Seven) has 9 signal signal strength and the quality varies between 1 or 2 and 7 and its it does not stay on anyone of them for long and the quality goes up and down as if say soemone was standing in front of the Antenna and waving something in front of it to block CH6 on and off (nothing Ican see that does that , although there is a tree 20 to 300 meters away, but all other channels re unaffected.  Interference ? but from what ? Looks like my Olympic viewing will not be good. And don't say stream it on the Internet, my area is considered poor for ADSL by the Govt site  ( a long way from the exchange) and indeed it is, I get average 4Mb/sec (and thats between 4 adults) , NBN not in sight for 9 months ( if ever) and then it will be the FTTN version. I did think about Vivid Wireless but no LOS to the nearest transmitter even though it is only 500 meters from me.
