If I didn’t laugh, I’d cry. A week ago we had an MTV set top box connected to an old cathode ray tube tv and a pretty old rabbit ear antenna. It all worked pretty well despite the set top boxes inability to tune in some of the newer digital channels; Go and Gem come to mind.
So it was time to upgrade. Out goes the old gear and in comes a Samsung 40inch 3D LED tv and a Panasonic twin tuner recorder blu-ray player. The TV picked up all the channels available but the blu-ray picked up all but the SBS channels.
Back went the Panasonic to be replaced with a Samsung twin tuner recorder blu-ray player. How many channels do you think it picked up? None, zero, nada. Strangely it had a BBC channel in there somewhere.
I’ll now be getting an antenna person to come and sort it out.
So be warned, if you’re going to buy a new everything in the box blu-ray player recorder, you may need to upgrade your antenna.
