    Slingbox Pro-HD and DVB-C

    query

      I have been seriously considering buying a Slingbox Pro-HD, but I am a bit confused regarding the built-in turner.

      Some places states that there is no dvb-c support in the turner, on the European version, but other places say it does?

       

      Ps. I live in Denmark and will properly buy at web shop in Denmark, but I don’t have any objections buying it directly from slingbox UK, IF that makes a difference.

          Hi Query,

           

          The built in Tuner of the Slingbox PRO-HD (UK version) supports DVB-T. Slingbox doesn't support DVB-C (TV over cable), both  have different hardware and platform standards.

           

          Some places states that there is no dvb-c support in the turner, on the European version, but other places say it does?

          Where did you find this information (Slingbox supporting DVB-C)? It has never been supported

           

          Reference:

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVB-T

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVB-C

           

          Kind regards

              Hi,

               

              I have in the same location: 2 x SlingBox.

               

              1. Slingbox Pro;

              2. Slingbox Pro HD.

               

              Both I bought in UK.

               

              SlingBox Pro works greate with my Cable TV... I'm using it for 4-5 years so far... without any problems... watching 55 channels.

               

              SlingBox Pro HD conected to the same cable that SlingBox Pro is not working. I can watch only 5-7 channels...

               

              My question is: What SlingMedia changed, what type of tuner they put in the new model that now I can't watch my cahnnels using HD version ?

               

              There is any way to watch all my chanells using HD model ?

               

              Thanks

               

              Mike
