Avtex FTA tuner
Hi! I've recently bought a new Avtex TV which has a built in Sat Tuner. Works fine except it registers lots of unnecessary channels that then need to be sorted and deleted, and the Program Guide is unusable as it doesn't populate properly.
I've been told it's because the Tuner is for FTA channels and not Freesat as I first thought.
My old TV was Analogue and worked via a SKY box, but that has an analogue output so the new TV won't accept it as it requires a Digital Signal via the Aerial socket.
Is there a Freesat box that has a Digital output via an RF output (Aerial Cable) otherwise I'll have to run a new cable from one side of the van to the other and fit an output socket.
The new box will need to be 12V or fed via an external power supply.
Alternately can the Analogue output from the SKY box be changed to Digital.
All ideas gratefully received - this must have been aired before, but I cant find the info.
