TV Over Internet vs a Digital Signal


Many countries mainly in Europe are going through changes in the country’s TV broadcasting signal right now. The tendency is to modernize the old fashioned analog television signal and this alteration is affecting many television users who will have to keep up to date to continue watching Tv. The analog transmission was broadcast in a single frequency while the mordern digital system is based on a discrete terrestrial platform permitting better quality (high definition) audio and images. The modern DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting) signal is broadcast in either the MPEG2 or MPEG4 technology where MPEG4 being the latest.

A transformation in television signal, however, can’t be easily done. It entails a lot of high complexity alterations behind the screen, but the most comprehensive effect to some extinct influences the end user who are required to do something to watch the digital television.

This article will assist you figure out if you will have to react on the changes and which options there are available.

First of all, who is affected?

–┬áThose making use of an old fashioned antenna.

If you can count yourself amongst those, here is what you can (should) do to transform your TV transmission and complete the process of a television revolution:

1.Buy a satellite antenna! This is maybe one of the most radical options you can choose, but is very likely also the smartest. When you buy a satellite dish you will no longer be reliant on any transmission transformations, as a matter of fact, you will never again have to worry about it. A satellite transmission is something very different and independent so if the main broadcasting organization decides to update its system within the nearest future you will not be affected. Using a satellite, also opens a new world of channels, enabling you to choose from a larger collection of television channels from all over the world as for an ex. CNN, BBC, TV2 Sport and Fox.

2.Changing to a cable dependent TV network. Though this option very often is limited to people who is housed in bigger building blocks with predecided solutions. This option would solve your problem.

3.Fibernet. Not an option for the majority, but definitely a top-notch solution.

4.Broadband. You can use your broadband IP connection as your TV broadcasting source. This network is digital as a standard and it is in fact possible to make use of it on your television.

5.Get a new flat screen television. The majority of the new TVs have internal digital boxes; the single concern you should be aware of is if they are MPEG4 compatible. If they just support MPEG2 you might have to change it again later on with an external transformer.

6.Internet TV. Did you know you can watch hundreds of television channels on the net? A lot of national TV brands also broadcast live on the internet.

7.Give up on the TV! This is likely not the first choice for the majority of users, but is mentioned here to display the importance of the topic. If you do not act you WILL lose the TV transmission. It is not like in the old days where a bad signal meant dim pictures, the digital times are merciless, now it is everything or nothing.

8.Buy a DVB T Tuner. This is the natural solution for a lot of people in many places. A DVB T Tuner from Digital Video Broadcasting Terrestrial is an external television transmission adaptor, allowing old TVs to transmit high definition images. It does not need any large antenna or expensive gear, the DVB T tuner is a little container you plug in to and position next to your TV and you are done. This is therefore the most cost efficient option for a majority of people. The main downside is that you will need a DVB T tuner for every TV in the family.

We hope you could use the overview given and that you are now better suited to take a well informed decision. The single thing left for you to do is to take action and do something about this minor annoyance before you are met with a black display.

Benefits of digital television and TV tuners over analogue


It is a well known fact that digital television has many advantages, including support of widescreen image, quality sound, compatible with standard Dolby Digital 5.1, and support for picture with higher resolution and detail, much higher than that of standard TV or DVD movies. The other big advantage is called multi channeling and it is the possibility of choosing specific video content in different channels or services of the type “video on demand”. Another important argument in favor of digital television is the fact that the signal is not susceptible to interference. Since the broadcasts are in digital format MPEG-2 (same as DVD content, although with a slightly different quality), the picture is always clear and clean. Moreover, the digital signal is distributed in the same frequency spectrum as analog FM, so it does not require any upgrade of the antennas. In other words, for the transition to digital TV content it is enough simply to install the appropriate receiver – either in the form of so-called box device, or as an expansion card for an ordinary PC.

For the home user both options are relatively affordable and available: some operators offer digital receivers for which the payment is a small addition to the monthly service fee for a specified period and tuner cards for PC are generally slightly cheaper than box devices and can be found practically everywhere, where computer components are offered. The advantage of PC tuners is however that they can easily exploit the capabilities of home computer not only to view but also to edit and record video content – something for what you will also need an appropriate DVD-recorder (which also costs money). Many people come to the decision to purchase a digital TV tuner for the simple reason that it offers a much larger range of functions compared with a cheap TV set. A further opportunity for some models is to adopt radio which makes them more attractive proposal. Digital TV tuners for PCs are known to computer enthusiasts for years, but with the relatively recent emergence of MPEG-2 tuners and operating system Windows XP Media Centre Edition 2005, they seem to have started gaining value and a mass audience. Digital TV tuners are actually relatively simple hardware that includes three main components: a simple coaxial connector for an antenna tuner receiver for a wide frequency range and decoder.

TV signal is taken by the antenna passes through the tuner and then through the decoder. Finally, the card sends the received information to the MPEG-2 decoder. Usually even the most simple and cheap tuners for PC come with some software tools for recording and watching TV, so there is no need to make any further investments. Internal tuner cards require the PC to have a free PCI or PCI Express slot screwdriver and a little skill to install them, which is challenging even for experienced users. External digital TV tuners are the perfect choice for people that like to have a lot of functions for the best price.
