Hi All

I live in the central of the north island of NZ, and want to go from sat to terrestrial, mostly for the picture/audio quality.

I'm currently running an ultraplus X-9200 and I want to retain a lot of the functionality it has, like recording multiple channels, output 1080P hdmi, etc. It must be able to decode multichannel feeds which the X-9200 never has for some reason. And skip the adds!!!! which the "approved" ones can't do...

I have 10m of coax up to a suitable place on the roof, and would rewire this for a (to be purchased) UHF antenna.

Ideas??
Could I replace the sat tuners in the ultraplus box with terrestrial tuners or is there a better way....

 

 

 

It must have a full functioning 7 day EPG and I need to access it via IP over my network.

http://vuplus.com/sub/sub0104.php with DVB-T tuners.

 

Can you actually get DVB-T where you are though?

 

What exactly do you mean decode multichannel feeds?

Yes I can get it.  Multichannel audio, i.e 5.1 is what I meant.

eBay.

 

Have a look at https://openpli.org/ They make enigma2 images for various receivers, including Vuplus. They list a whole bunch of other receivers as well from various manufacturers - bound to be something that fits your technical requirements and price range.

The X 9200 has swappable tuners, you can use 1x DVBS2 and 1x DVBT or any other mix.
