    • Did not no where to put this topic. Need a DIY thread Thinking of selling my SVS PB13 and then making 2 18inch builds powered by a pro amp probably Inuke 6000 dsp. I know its the all the rage in the US of A  so I was wondering if many have done builds here.
    • Off course 4k tv's have HEVC decoders the  point is most tv's dont so poxtel arent going to invest in decoders for a small % .. I wont be interested until they incorporate HDR metadata in the broadcast signal ; thats where the picture improvement will lie .
    • Harry, TV stations use computers to continuously monitor the transmitted signal strength along with lots of other transmitter test points. Their main transmitter is in Television Rd Bickley but they can also transmit from another tower in Welshpool Rd Carmel, which is used by TEN. Just make sure that the plug pack for the masthead amplifier is connected between one of the TVs and the splitter and that the power is on. (Some splitters will only accept the power on one of the TVs  cable. "Channel 7" is actually transmitted on channel 6.The most likely cause is poor connection to the antenna, input of the masthead amplifier, output of the masthead amplifier or the splitter. Do you have an antenna which was used for analog channel 2 and would be 2 m wide at at the back? If so replace it with a Band 3 antenna. I say channel 6 requires a metallic connection but as the channel number increases more signal can be capacitively coupled across a tiny gap. I live in the Warwick area and there is no problems here.

    • If you have fibre NBN then you can watch some programs from Netflix in UHD. You can now buy Samsung UHD Blu-ray players, and there are around 30 discs available in Australia. If a UHD TV says it can show Netflix, it generally has a HEVC decompressor. Netflix send UHD signals HEVC compressed. For UHD to be broadcast on free to air TV all TVs have to be DVB-T2, 50 frame/s/HEVC video/HE-AAC audio compatible. Alanh
