does SV The box work on Ch*rus in Clonmel, Co. Tipp or do i need a Box T?
It depends on whether you have MMDS or C****s true cable.
If you have MMDS then yes you need to get 'The Box T' if you have ordinary cable then the normal 'The Box' will do.
my friend is on Ch*rus cabel piped in and has a sv2 the box but when he does a scan he gets no channels!! he just got the box 2day, its a genuine 1.
Does he know for sure whether he has mmds or cable ? MMDS is fed into houses by cable or by an aerial on the roof.
Make sure he has the cable plugged into the box in the 'Cable Input' socket at the back of the box.
Also press the 'menu' button on the remote,enter 1570 and check that 'Key EMU' is ON.
he said that he is def on cable but when he scans no progs are found!!
he's not at home at the mo, but when he is he wil try and c if emu is on...
keep u informed!!!
thanx 4 everything
No problem post back as you said
just talked 2 my friend, he turned box on again, pressed menu 1570 but select language came up... its still at the installation stage!
u said that apart from an ariel on the roof, mmds can b piped through cable, just like regular n*l? could this b the problem?
It sounds like it needs to be installed first,press ok on English when select language comes up then it should bring him into installation where you have to select the cable provider-select C****s,then go down to auto scan and press ok,it'll start scanning.
When it's done exit back to the home page of the menu and enter 1570 and check at the bottom of the list it brings up that Key EMU is ON.
Exit completely out of the whole menu and the channels should be working and make sure all connections are in the right sockets.
If it's still not getting any channels then it must be mmds he's on but he'd want to make sure that he is definately on mmds before buying The Box T,it should tell him on his bill from C****s what service he is on.
he did the whole installation thing but picked up no channels at all...
anyway he's gone 2 bed now, has work early 2morro, hate that!!! lol
thaks 4 the help, i'll get him to find out wot service he's gettin!!!
Think he may have analogue.
Yes good point Sc0use forgot about some areas still not having digital.
Bobby this could be his problem .
My friensd says that he is deff. getting mmds through a transmitter in Clonmel and piped through cable. We tried the Box originally and the Box T today but still got no channels. Not sure wot to do!!!!
Any help plz????
Try to scan at 522 mhz via the dvb-t box.
he just told me that he is sure its an analogue mmds signal being piped in via a transmitter..... maybe this is the problem????
There is also digital piped in but in a other frequency range than via mmds aerial.
