    Does anyone know how to get my analogoue tv to receive digital channels.

    Is there any upgrade mods or adaptions available?

    I have a 2002 E46 BMW.

    Costs a fortune from bMW.

    I fitted an extra digital tuner and connected it to the existing tuner so you have both, around £60.....works well.

    Ebay :)

    Steve,

    Is this difficult to fit, and I take it you fitted it to your BMW E46 92 model.
    Correct me if I am wrong, this will give me digital TV and Radio, and work with my exisiting setup?

    Thats the one I fitted.

    Quite easy to fit and it gives you everything thats on freeview, radio too.

    You have to connect it to your "tuner" video module in the boot, you'll need a harness http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....akeTrack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:uk

    that ones expensive but does everything (then some), you can get simple AV ones for around £60

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....MEWA:IT&viewitem=&item=280106718895&rd=1&rd=1

    That one will also do what you need, lot cheaper too if you dont want ipod etc etc.

    It's been a year since this post.

    Thanks :)

    I have recently seen in some tech news that LG is offering mobile phone featuring in reciving DVB-T (LG HB620-T). Over here in Czech rep. it is currently under huge testing of O2, Vodafone, T-Mobile and some people that already bought it. The references are: dur. of watching TV 4-4.5 hrs, perfect view, and mobile operators had to admit this phone is killer of DVB-H.

    I do not know if this type got a video out but I believe this fueature is comming soon in somne different types
