Can You Use An Aussie Set Top Box In New Zealand?

Recommended Posts

Australia DVB-T uses MPEG2 7MHz bandwidth and NZ uses MPEG4 8MHz bandwidth, so you need to ensure any purchase complies with the NZ DVB-T system for use there.

The specs of the DSE box in your link suggests it will work in both Australia and NZ.

Refer page 11 of the manual.

Most of the stb's these days seem to be a 'world' box, they can handle a range of different voltages and just have the right

power plug fitted for the country they are going to. In the set up menu there is usually a list of countries to choose from and

bandwidth options so should be able to tailor it for NZ tv reception. Check before you buy at the shop if you can to see if the

menu has counry options. A lot of tv's have the option of NZ or AUSTRALIA when you first do an Auto Tune when setting them

up for the first time.

In the manual in the link I posted, it shows a Country Selection menu... it doesn't indicate which countries can be selected, but from the specs, it should do the job for NZ.

Thanks again.

I wonder why they don't sell it at Dick Smith in NZ.

They haven't got anything remotely close price wise.
