    Hey MP People !!

    Is there any way to get Boxer's(Denmark) HD channels into MP ???
    I do have all the normal channels from boxer into my MP, but i cant find ANY HD channels. I can find the channels on my boxer tv-box. I have the Hauppauge CI USB Modul, and in that, Smit ci+ with boxer Card inside. I have a Hauppauge HVR 4400 as a tv-Card. IF i shall get another tv Card for this to be working, what tv-Card and what cardreader module do you suggest i shall get ? AND, IS it possible to Watch HD channels from boxer om MP ?

    Best regards

    I don't know about Boxer Denmark's HD channels but it is possible to watch HD channels in MediaPortal unless they are "paired".

    First you need to find the channels during the channel scan. I'm guessing that you are using DVB-T to scan. If you know the frequency of the missing channels, you may do an Advanced Tuning - Single Transponder. If you do not know the frequency, you might be lucky and select Scan for transponder list which will scan a known frequency to search for a list of frequencies (transponders) where all of the broadcaster's other channels are.

    I think Boxer uses DVB-T2 for their HD channels in both Sweden and Denmark... but I could be wrong.
    http://www.boxer.se/kundservice/ordlista/a-f/dvb-t2/
    http://www.boxer.se/Global/Swedish/manufacturer/FAQ about DVB-T2 Launch in Denmark 2012-04-02.pdf

    If I'm right you'll need a new tuner. HVR-4400 can only receive DVB-T and not DVB-T2.

    Also, as vuego has said I think Boxer uses CI+ for their HD channels. The experts can confirm which CAMs will actually work with CI+ and a PC tuner. I think the only option is a Unicam...

    Folks, CI+ is not meant to be compatible with PC tuners. There are some CAMs that ignore the CI+ limits that can be used in a normal CI slot. PC tuners with CI+ support do not exist.

    However, I do think that Boxer has not enabled the CI+ specification fully, according to some other forums in Sweden. So currently I think it will work as long as you use the Boxer original CAM.

    I am in the same situation, I want to watch HD as well.

    I have ordered a DVBSky T980C DVB-T2 for testing this. Correct me if I'm wrong mm, but that card is fully supported in MP?

    CAMs that support HD+ but ignore all limitations are UniCam and DeltaCam. There is no CI+ PC interface and never will be as noone can guarantee that PC CI+ slot will seriously take all limitations of HD+.

    hmm, okay sad to hear that. But I thought I saw that in another forum post?
    Anyway, we do have FTA channels using DVB-T2 so I still have use for the card anyway.

    Any chance of supporting CI for that card?
    I would be happy to help you of course?

    Thanks.
