DVB-T2

Post by Jilli »

Hi all!
I've recently bought an HDHR5-4DT....
I live in Italy and in the future the TV Signal Will change from dvb-t to dvb-t2, so this hardware basically Is ready For the new standard.
Se can check this on 2 live channels, the "100" and the "200" where of your hardware Is ready For the next TV standard you can see a blue Square with something like "hevc test" wrote in the middle.
With my hdhomerun i didn't see nothing, jusk a black screen, so ma question Is:
Can my hdhomerun really receive the new dvb-t 2 Signal when the dvb-t Will Be switched off?

Thank you all :D

The Italian DVB-T2 test channels do not have an audio stream, only video. The HDHomeRun app will not play channels that don't have an audio stream. All the real channels will of course have at least one audio stream, so this issue wouldn't affect a real channel, just the test channels. If you have another video app like VLC or Kodi on your player device you can access the HDHomeRun from that and confirm that the test channels do play.
