Hi all,




Does such a TV exist in NZ?




-Where the TV itself has a freeview compatible (satellite DVB-S) tuner built directly in?




Not worried too much about the official freeview EPG (They still broadcast the full EPG via EIT data on satellite don't they?)




Just looking for the simplest turn on and go setup for satellite, to mimic what you can do with a terrestrial/UHF/DVB-T/freeview HD TV.

Someone made mention of a TH55CS650Z Panasonic a while back, so I wonder if anything is actually available here in NZ.

Harvey Normans have some I believe, but they aren' available at all stores, they are on the website but I think they may be 40" and 50" nothing in between

Most Samsungs and some LGs have dual tuners (DVB-T and DVB-S).


This one does (bit smaller than your requirement):


As does this (bit bigger):


Do you need it to fit into a cavity or something?

Thanks guys, pretty excited about this.

Yeah it's a corner of a room and not particularly flexible between two doors.


Trying to recreate that turn it on and it works functionality of yesteryear, with a satellite signal requirement due to physical house location.




Will investigate...

Is there anything in the model code numbers/ranges that convey the presence of a satellite tuner as well?

Just trying to figure out how best to spot the dvb-s enabled models.
