DGTEC HD Red colours incomplete/bleeding out

Has anyone else come accross this problem.

My DGTEC H2000-A unit suffers the same problems as it seems everyone else has, with locking up, and losing channels, but I have a problem which is of more concern. I get perfect reception on Channel 9 HDTV demo and DVDs, however on other channels I notice that bright red coloured objects seem to have missing lines within the object and a fringe of additional lines outside the object. This only seems to happen with reds/oranges. I've also notived that Channel 7 programmes, in particular are very yellow and are of poorer quality.

BTW: DGTEC suggest that the loss of channel info may be due to the use of antenna splitters in apartment building, which create interference.

looks like there is a real lack of commitment to digital TV in Australia

Not so, in fact this problem is no where near as bad as it used to be. It only happens when the Dgtec is upconverting a lower resolution 576i or 576p broadcast to 1080i.

One fix is to not use the HD1 (1080i) setting on the Dgtec, but that defeats the purpose.

The other is to let the TV station do the upconversion for you with their much more sophisticated (and expensive) equipment. In the last couple of years the amount of upconverted 1080i has increased immensely.

Watch 10 on 12 (1080i native or upconvert) 9 on 90 (1080i native or upconvert) and ABC on 20 (1080i upconvert).

Sadly 7 & SBS have chosen not to broadcast 1080i. The only options are to flick the switch, put up with the lines or just not watch them.

Best of luck,

Dik

Is this problem particular to the display?

I've never had any of these problems. :blink:

You're the lucky one - its not unbearable, just not as good as I would have hoped for. Hopefully the FTA channels wioll get their act together soon...
