    • "welcome to the 4K Universe mello" thank you parallel mello  
    • Remember that UHD requires 25 Mbit/s, it is available to all those on glass fibre, however Fibre to the node speed reduces drastically as the distance from the node increases but also as the number of simultaneous subscribers and internet users will also slow it down. The wide spread use of HFC cable for the NBN is yet to happen, How much will it slow down when there are the maximum number of simultaneous users? The proportion of the population which will be able to view UHD from the internet will not be as many as most would expect. DVB-S2 is currently being used with HEVC/HE-AAC by pay satellite providers in Europe. So in cable areas, their best option may be to replace the cable systems with either DVB-C2/HEVC/HE-AAC system including the cable STB or go satellite as they already use in Perth and country areas. The advantage of DVB-S2 and DVB-C(2) systems are that they are one way where as internet systems require bidirectional operation. Alanh

    • Hi Guys One solution I have found that seems to work is to use the Winguard type antenna for VHF capital city and strong regional UHF signals and use a high gain UHF Yagi or a band 3/4 log periodic antenna mounted on a teloscopic mast fitted to the drawbar that way the antenna can be mounted for vertical or horizontal signals,Some caravans have an outside antenna connection already fitted or you can find an easy way inside up through the floor or just run the cable in the door when required,A masthead amp can be fitted in line if you need more signal if you are in the bush a bit.There a brackets available to fit the drawbar temporarily that just bolt on with wingnuts etc and you can turn the antenna for the best reception, easier than getting the misses to turn the van while you watch the tv ha! cheers Tazzy
    • The HDMI board might be fried. Hot swopping of cables is not a good idea.
