  1. I’ve been burnt by the purchasing a fancy integrated TV set without the MPG4 support many years ago. After Nine upgraded their services last year, I lost access to all of Nine’s services since… Might consider acquiring a STB to get all these new services. For the cost of a new STB, you have all available stations to you currently available. If the TV breaks or if the TVs in the future do not support what MPEG format the networks decide to use, buying a STB is the cheapest alternative if you ever need to “upgrade” again.

    1. “After Nine upgraded their services last year, I lost access to all of Nine’s services since”

      If your TV doesn’t support Mpeg4, you should still be getting everything but 9HD from Nine. Even without 9HD you are not missing out on any Nine programming – exactly why it is currently simulcast.

    1. How old is it? Anything more than 5/6 years can be expected to have no Mpeg4 support. Actually, I wasn’t even aware you could still get Sharps in Australia.?

      Have you checked for firmware updates? support.sharp.net.au/drivers/

  2. Supporting a disposable society …. ‘throw out your TV and buy a new one’, is not what I call a responsible stand to take Channel 7. We want quality that lasts, from our TVs to our standard of broadcast …. jamming more channels in trying to look impressive at the expense of picture quality is 3rd world stuff. What about cleaning up all the duplicates & multiple daily repeats of the same episodes and insert the 7 Flix shows instead? These days we record those we wish to view so we don’t need all the repeats. As for the Racing channel and those betting ads, I repeat, not very responsible channel 7. I know MPEG 4 is a Govt initiative but since when did they get it right?

    1. Actually, you can thank the Howard government for your problems. They chose to go with DVB-T using Mpeg2, upgrading to Mpeg4 later on, when the recommendation had been Mpeg4 from the outset. As a result, manufacturers were able to unload a lot of Mpeg2-only gear into the country, that they could no longer sell elsewhere.

        1. Indeed… That will be even more expensive, as we’ll have to remove the copper reticulation and replace it with fibre eventually. We simply can’t use copper indefinitely, it has to be replaced every 10-15 years and the price of the stuff is horrific (it’s also becoming very hard to procure). This also means the Nodes will be redundant, so they’ll get pulled out. All that near-new plant, completely wasted.

          1. “We simply can’t use copper indefinitely, it has to be replaced every 10-15 years”

            Sorry, but that is just nonsense! There are many drawbacks to the current NBN plans, but a short lifespan of copper is not one of them. Lots of the copper wire that’s in the ground has been there for decades, and it will all continue to work for decades more.

  3. I wish they did a TGIF kinda retro family TV lineup from 5:30-8:30 on Fridays. I totally would watch that lineup!

    The Nanny, Alf, Full House, Home Improvement, Growing Pains, Step By Step. or any other.

    wishful thinking but it would be different.

    1. Can you receive 74 and 78? They’re the same codecs. If you can’t receive those or 13 and 90, then your set may not handle Mpeg4. A quick call to channel 7 would get you an answer, maybe they’re having broadcast problems there, they did here on the Gold Coast..
