    I'm thinking of upgrading my Denon 260L2 to one of these digital tuners, but what I want to know is will it work with NTL cable service as I'm having that installed this weekend (can't have sky). I'm assuming it's just a plug in to the cable (box?) and off I go.

    Anyone using a similar setup, i.e. NTL and a digital reciever?

    thx
    :)

    HI,

    I use both completely independant of each other. Have never compared what you get from the digital tuner and NTL - I would assume NTL has more variations, and the digital tuner more local stations.

    The digital tuner has it's own aerial and the NTL box it's own feed.

    Any q's or anything you want me to look at give me a shout.

    Rob.

    Cheers for the info m8. I thought you would connect the tuner to NTL to get the digital radio signal. Are you saying you have to install a dedicated aerial to get the digital reception?

    On the dab tuner yes. I have a normal ribbon cable hidden behind the hifi and get good reception. Check out the many dab radio websites to see what kind of reception you can expect (if it's "good" then the standard ribbon cable should be fine).
