I'm new, I hope I have put this in the right place & please excuse if I have mucked up.
10 months ago I got an HDD/DVR. It's Panasonic's DMR-XW480. At the time we were in Aus I didn't know we'd be moving back home to NZ.
Before we came back over I tried to find out from the manufacturers & from sites in Aus whether our TV & HDD/DVR would be compatible with the NZ network. They said "no". Looking at the specs I wasn't so sure on the telly & turns out I was right about that one, thank goodness.
But I wasn't so confident about the DVR. We'd like to keep it but I don't really want to run it with a separate STB.
Can this machine run on the NZ digital network? If not is there a way to have it adapted so it will? Not that I am particularly attached but $$$ & don't want to toss gear that works if it can be altered.
I think those are the key Qs for the moment. Otherwise I'll be asking what's the best bet for a new model or maybe a short term fix. It's probably blasphemy to say I never watch telly lol, but I often record & watch the little I am interested in. In the meantime our lovely telly is sitting there able to pick up digital just fine but not being used because I can't get the DVR to run.
Ta for reading, help/thoughts appreciated.
