Morning all I live in Broadstairs in Kent right on the coast. Th French DTV signal is strong enough to be picked up pretty well here. Can anyone recommend a set top box to receive free to air dtv transmissions from France? Many thanks
Ah great, I assume I need a box which is not "locked" to just the standard UK stuff? Is there a set top box which is global? So you can set your country and it searches for channels according to country? Thanks!
UK boxes put the French channels in the 800's and generally won't decode the French teletext. There are odd ones that will however, the Icecrypt T2200 and some Sagems will decode the teletext. Lidl occasionally sell suitable boxes as well. A day trip to Calais might be worthwhile, Auchan. and LeRoy Merlin have boxes as cheap as UK ones and wine is a lot cheaper. The menus can invariably be changed to English.
