Why Digital TV? Digital Television is the TV of the future. Building on your existing five TV channels, digital television offers many high quality free channels including E4, BBC Choice, ITV2, BBC Knowledge and BBC News 24, with others on the way.
Digital terrestrial television is a robust, all-digital system, unlike the current PAL TV system which is analogue. For the first time, studio quality television can be viewed on your desktop. TV aerials are used to receive DTT, and thanks to this new form of transmission in the UK, interference-free reception is now possible. No more ghosting or video noise. You get crystal clear TV pictures! Many digital programmes are also broadcast in wide screen format, so the viewing experience is even better.
- For Digital Terrestrial reception, a high gain aerial is recommended. The WinTV-NOVA-T PCI uses a rooftop aerial for DVB-T reception in the same way that most people currently receive their analogue television programmes. Some viewers will need to replace their aerials to receive digital transmissions if the installation is old or in poor condition. Digital Terrestrial coverage is improving all the time as digital terrestrial television transmitters are continuously being updated. However it may take some time for coverage to reach particular areas of the country.
- DVB-T Radio is not DAB Radio.
- To use the WinTV-NOVA-T PCI for TV with the Windows XP Media Center application a Media Center certified DVD or MPEG-2 software decoder is required. If you are building a Media Center PC, refer Microsoft's web site for a list of Media Center certified DVD decoders. The Windows Media Center application is included with Windows XP Media Center, Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows Vista Home Premium editions only. The enclosed remote control is not MCE certified and does not replace Media Center remote control.
