To increase Channel numbers

Is there any tv card available which could increase the channel numbers on the TV. Mine has 80, the cable operater is giving more than that.

Any solution...

By TV device dany or Gadmei

Just buy a new tv set for Rs6000-8000

Or as suggested before buy a Dany

Or buy a PVR card, hook your cable to your PC and then record all your favorite programs or cricket matches for Rs1500-6000.

Go to Galaxy.pk and check the prices there.

If you could explain these two TV devices dany and Gadmei it will be more helpful.

Imran, these devices are used in consort with older

model TV which have limited channel capacity (they

can't handle higher frequency bands like UHF).

Locally these devices are called "magic boxes". They

are of two kinds. One which you use with a TV, the

other with a computer monitor. The one that works

with TV also has two varieties: one that can work

with an RF cable, the other which will only work with

a composite cable (the sort you use to plug in your

VCR into your TV).

So first inspect the back of your TV set and see if it

has provision for composite cable (Video, Audio Left,

Audio Right), or the simple RF cable (antenna). After

being armed with this information, you can go to

your local electronic market and ask for a magic box

(DANY is one popular brand name). It should not cost

you more than Rs. 1100/-. Make sure you get the right

one for your need.

Thanks Sheikh Chilli for the explaination. How can I check that my TV is multi color or not. Although it has PAL, Auto, NTSC color options but when I connect DVD Player with it, everythink is OK but picture is black & white.

How far maximum channels danny (available in market) could give?

With which interface you connect your DVD Player to your TV?

Commonly either it is RF (coaxial cable) or Audio/Video composite cables. Composite cables have one for Video and either one (mono) or two (stereo) for audio cables.

S-Video > Composite Video > RF

I am currently using S-Video and it gives out better video output. However, before that, for years I had used Composite Video/Audio cables. I always refrain from RF because they put noise in signal (even within 3 feet).

^My TV set is 14 inch Sony Trinitron. 14 35

DVD Player is almost latest which is. DVP-NS708HP/B

I use Audio/Video composite cables for connecting. I have discussed this problem in past on this forum but no success. The link is:

Lets see if wampyr bro could help.

^ I have posted message in your relevant thread.

pretty useful information by Sheikh_Chilly ... thx

Imran if your TV set is a Sony 14" KV-1435EE then I

have bad news for you. There is slim chance that

you will be able to get a color picture through a DVD

input to your TV set. That, I am saying based on my

personal experience with a similar TV set.

Btw, how are you able to connect the DVD to your

TV set ?, since that model does not have a composite

cable input at the back (mine didn't), or does it ?.

The number of channels available in a magic box,

depend largely on how much you are willing to spend.

On average, a regular magic box will have a built-in

capacity for 200 channels, which will suffice for most

of the cable companies offering their services in Pak.

mine TV has the audio/video cable on front. At back there are also four options of input and output of audio/video cable.

I took my TV to shop where he attached with another DVD player and it worked and no black & white problem occured. Same is the case with DVD player which worked with another TV.

Your TV set is then a newer model (than mine) and the

problem, if there is any, lies with the DVD player. Coinci-

dentally, I was also using a SONY DVD player with the

1435 Trinitron TV set and getting the black and white

picture.

Unfortunately, I can't share any solution with you, since

I stopped trying and switched to a TV set that works.
