I have a UK spec X series Bravia TV. It has a built in digital receiver which I assume is a mpeg-2 format

Is there a "card" I can buy to replace the UK one to allow me to receive the new NZ Freeview HD signal?

No there isn't cant see there being one either.
You will need to look at the STB options

I suspect not.  I asked a similar question to Sony several months ago and got this back..

"Thank you for contacting Sony NZ.

At this stage our Bravia marketing team are looking at Digital tuners either to include them in newer model Bravia LCD's or the separate box. At this stage the New Zealand team are looking into it with the Sony Japan design team and are looking for release early to mid next year.

I hope this helps resolve your query. If not, or more information is required, please contact us on 0800 SONY NZ (0800 766 969)."



I suspect you will need a STB..

There is a PCMCIA card made by a French company. Unfortunately I can't remember the name or find a link to it, but basically it was a converter card for inside DVB-T Bravias that would convert H.264 to MPEG2 for display. I decided it was too much trouble and a set-top box was easier, but if you already have the TV, then it might suit you if it works here. I'll try and find the link.
