They might want to record the output of the box, which they certainly couldn't do via a HDMI lead.
As long as you are currently receiving a good Freeview signal then your current aerial should (in most cases) be up to receiving HD Freeview.Brilliant! Can't wait to get my hands on one of these. I take it we can use our existing aeriels?
so if hd will be on freeview, i take it the existing hd ready freeview tvs wont be able to cope with it then if theres a need for a new generation of stb, or are these just an evolution of existing stbs for non dtv tellies.
only ask as being a sky customer not felt need for a stb though now testing one due to second sky box failing as a cheap fix. also trying to leave changing tv to dtv/hd type as long as can to maximise bargain, yep love bigger screen but of attitude not broken doesnt need fixing. obviously DSO will make it more relevant for me next year...
See no reason for which HD signal couldn't be recorded on, for eample, a Bluray recorder, provided it's not locked by HDCP what shouldn't be the case with FREEview.They might want to record the output of the box, which they certainly couldn't do via a HDMI lead.
Personally I'm not very excited with these Argos boxes as I own a Sony KDL40W5500 tv which boasts a DVB/T2 tuner.
Although it's compatibility with Freeview HD hasn't been oficially confirmed I know this tv picks HD signal in other countries where it's already available.
This applies probably also to other recent, higher end tv's.
