Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Llanddona transmitter area
@Briantist. Thank you for the quick reply!
I thought my TV (40" Sony KDL-40BX400) was sorted but, when feeding it directly from a terrestrial aerial, it looks like it's just HD ready.
I'm using a Linux box to feed it now, but the terrestrial card I use (Nova T-500) is only SD. Surprisingly (and very pleasingly) my satellite card (Nova-S, allegedly only DVB-S) picks up HD (DVB-S2) just fine, so I can receive HD from that for the time being.
Looks like I'll have to wait a while until DVB-T2 cards start coming out.
Thanks again, best regards, Martyn
