Digifusion DV3 FRT100 query


I have a Digifusion DV3 FRT100 (model NR FRT100).
Looking at the list of devices in the section, "TVs and boxes that do not support the 8k-mode", it lists FRT100*"?
Underneath it states "All these sets can be upgraded - contact the supplier (numbers below) to add a Freeview box to the set. "

Does this mean it will not work with the digital switchover ?

Muhammed Islam: "If" it won't support 8k mode, then it won't work after switchover as signals use 8k mode after switchover and 2k mode before.

However, you're referring to this page:

TVs and boxes that do not support the 8k-mode | ukfree.tv - 10 years of independent, free digital TV advice

A number of devices have asterisks by them, but it doesn't say what these mean. I wonder if the statement "All these sets can be upgraded …" is the meaning of an asterisk else that would mean that it applies to all the models which I would be surprised about.

Briantist [site owner and author of that page], can you shed any light on the possible upgrade of this model, or is it consigned to the tip?

Dave Lindsay: the "upgrade" symbol means you can add a Freeview box to the TV set.

Muhammed Islam: Thanks for the advice, chaps.

One website mentioned the FRT100 will not work after "digital switchover" http://www.radioandtelly.…ml?

I bought this FRT100 from a Cancer Research shop for £5 (no remote control) and have been looking for a universal remote controller. The radioandtelly website above saves me time looking for both its controller and if it can now work.?

Shame that certain 3vu boxes are not designed for the digital switchover and the paying public (ie us) have to spend more....

Briantist: Thanks for clarification Brian. Now you mention it, I see that the statement ends with "to add a Freeview box to the set".

What do the asterisks by some model numbers listed on that page signify?

Muhammed Islam: And just as further confirmation regarding the issue of the FRT100, DUK has this model listed (along with many others) as being a 2k only device and as such not upgradable.

Dennis: This top up TV box is known under a variety of brand names and if you click on the first of the two undermentioned links at the bottom of the listings shown you will see :T845 - all TUTV boxes, click to download the instruction manual which covers all brand names associated with this chassis.

This second link is just in case the first doesn't work, and in this case click on :DTR manual (covers all models).

Hoping you can help. Since I tried to re-tune all 3 Freeview TV's in my house, since 27 March, unable to get any BBC channels - everything was fine before the re-tune and have re-tuned several times before with success, but not now - any advice welcomed
