    Hi,
    I too can tune but not watch, see that there several scrambled channels.
    Maybe we just have to wait until someone knows anything more, last thing i heard was NRK should be FTA channels, but doesn't look like it now......

    Regards
    Roy

    Hi,
    Been testing those channels using Terratec software & PDVD codecs, seems like we have a new mux "79400" & about 30 channels (some scrambled) + 14 radio channels, but no sound @ all. Guess it is to early yet.......

    Regards
    Roy

    I have gotten an answer from NTV regarding HTPC-usage and DVB-T in Norway:

    Me:
    "Hvordan ser NTV for seg bruk av HTPC ("stue PC") og det digitale bakkenettet? Hovedspørsmålet er derav: vil dere drive "pairing" av kort og dekodere? Dere vil ha et enormt potensiale når det gjelder HTPC-bruk (som er i sterk fremmarsj) - håper virkelig NTV og NTV Pluss setter seg litt inn i dette og utnytter det til det fulle.

    Typiske produkter som kan benyttes finner dere her: http://www.digital-everywhere.com/cms/en/index.php
    De skal støtte MPEG4 (H.264).

    Typiske programvare er Windows MCE, Vista samt MediaPortal med flere."

    NTV:
    "Det arbeides med disse områdene, men det er ingen løsning her enda. Ved lansering må man derfor ha en egen set-top boks med eget kort for betal-tv.
    NTV"

    My conclusion is that Canal Digital, NTV etc are doing their best to push every customer to P2P-based download of series etc. And I hope that everyone does this instead of supporting those incompetent annoying people.

    This has nothing to do with "looking into technicalities". It has to do with an industry that continues to lock customers into whatever crappy scheme their managers have decided.

    An article about the american "cablecard" system, the CEO of Norways largest sat. provider:
    http://www.digi.no/php/art.php?id=372636

    "Davidsen kjenner ikke til CableCard-teknologien, men han mener at en slik teknikk ville være positiv. Han har dog noen spørsmål og vil ikke love noe om når norske kunder kan glede seg til den større friheten CableCard gir.."

    So, he does not know of this well-known US technology?

    "Men han påpeker en skepsis som nok flere i TV-bransjen deler med han:

    – Det er ikke sikkert at man ønsker at Microsoft skal ta over TV-mottaker-markedet, sier Davidsen til digi.no."


    So, he is saying that CableCard cannot be used in Nroway because it will be too expensive, and he does not want to let Microsoft in. What does Microsoft have to do with this, CableCard is a general technology aimed at more competition.

    I think this is the first time I really would like Bush's aspirations of world dominance and FBI jurisdiction over here ;-)

    I truly think that these guys are the mafia and that their business practices should be shut down - prefereably by customers not giving them a dime...

    SVT broadcasted the World Cup last summer in H.264 DVB-T, back then MP didn't support it.

    The easiest combo was:
    - One DVB-T card
    - DVB Viewer 3.5(or later) + the H.264 plug-in
    - PowerDVD 7(with H.264 enabled) or CoreAVC

    H.264 is very CPU intensive so I really recommend a Nvidia 6600GT or better along with PowerDVD 7.

    The swedish distributor for Digital-Everywhere has written a really nice howto in swedish:

    First:

    Good news from RiksTV?

    Mediesenter-pc
    RiksTV ser på muligheten til å støtte mediesenter-pc.

    Støtte for utstyr som Media Center PC krever innsats fra oss og flere av våre teknologipartnere. Vi jobber med å få til en løsning, men kan ikke si noe om timeplanen enda.

    Straks vi har mer informasjon om dette vil vi publisere det på vår hjemmeside. Vi ser på dette som en spennende mulighet både for oss og for våre kunder.


    You probably seen this?
    Prøvesendinger i MPEG4 og manglende lyd.
