Daz wanted to know if a Telewest HD receiver was compatible with sky. no mention of if he wanted the couple of HD channels that Sky currently offer

 

so the Dbox Will cover all his needs unless he specifically wants HD, however the New Dbox i understand is HD compatible

What are you going on about?

 

the answer i have posted is as follows

 

 

A Nokia Dbox will receive Sky channels, they (Nokia ) also produce a cable version, (i know because i had one)

 

what i have said and posted a link to the ebay auction itsself is that the box Dazwants to use is not compatible but a NOKIA D BOX is and would solve his problems

 

why are you having difficulty in understanding this

 

regards

 

paul

yes but daz wanted to know could is Virgin Box work with Sky Dish to obtain Sky HDTV I replied No that was the answer.Why you find you have to undermine everbodys answers here on CAG I dont know?

So as daz has not got a Nokia Box your reply which was not needed seems irrelevent would you not agree?

 

 

Thats my point

well then we will agree to disagree on that point. im sure daz will take note of the points raised and make his own judgment. BTW i did agree with you in the first post i made;)

 

with regards to undermining i find that comment unnecessary and rather offensive.

 

if correcting incorrect information is undermining then i guess i do, however we both know it is not!!!!!!!!

 

poor and half baked advice is damaging to peoples defences dont you agree?

 

i dont proclaim to know everything as you seem to think, i merely post on areas i do know about.

 

you find me a post in the holiday forums that i have made? or the utilities forum ? you wont because i dont!!!

Paul's answer was correct insofar as a Cable box wont decode satellite signals and vice-versa. Mention of the Nokia just muddied the water! (Is it true you can make calls on them too?) :)

 

Hi Raymond

Thanks for that, the Cable box is definatley a non starter for satalite purposes

 

 

 

however, while not widely known here in the uk (nor apparently by Andyorch either)

 

Nokia made a box in Germany that was able to decode all cable channels and they also made a box for satalite channels

 

they are excellent boxes and can be connected to a pc so you can record onto your harddrive and also play movies from your pc on your tv and it can do a whole host of other things apart from making phone calls

 

that was my suggestion for Daz if he wanted a cheap alternative

 

 

 

regards

paul

Does anyone know if a Telewest HDTV cable receiver can be 'rigged' to receive sky tv? [through a mini dish]

 

Dar£n asked a question, Andyorch said NO why has it become so complicated. Nokia box was then brought in Why ?

The answer was NO.

You're actually both right - it was simply that Paul was offering an alternative solution (ish) and I have to admit to being guilty of this when it appears my alternative is do-able with the original kit! War over... hugs all round! :oops:

Hello Paul,

You said you used to have one of these Nokia D Boxes. As you suggested I had a look on ebay. It mentions Debug, just for my information what does debug mean as regards to these boxes.

In addition, who would I pay my fee to for receiving the service and how many channels would I receive?

Thank you &Regards, ML

Hi ML,

 

TO be honest, im not sure, they can work as free view boxes or if connected to a sat feed they will cover sat but you would need a subscription and to pay a fee

 

im not sure on what debug means but i know you can upgrade the software in the box,maybe thats what it means? not sure,

 

my box was used to allow me to play AVI files on my tv through a link cable, that was what i used it for, but i know h they have many many other applications

 

Regards

paul

Thanks anyway Paul I just thought with you having such a machine that you maybe know the in's and out's of them.

Anyway one of our squaddies on the site may have the tech knowledge about Debug on these machines, it's just to my mind to have a Debug facillity on them they must be bugged in the first place and why ?

Regards ML
