    Hi. I live in Wellington, and have previously had a PAL tuner installed in my Tivo.
    I'm quite keen on getting Nicam stereo working. What's the easiest way, and what would the costs be?

    Hi,

    Yes they are an old model. I think they were released around 2 years ago - hence the good pricepoint.
    As I mentioned, they aren't too fast, but the Tivo throttles the network bandwidth it...

    Wireless Bridge

    Hi.
    I use Dynalink 810+ wireless bridges (x2). I find that the price point is pretty good, and they work nicely with my Dynalink router.

    SeanOffShotgun,
    I've PM'ed you regarding the Nicam VCR.

  7. I can't get sound out of a newly installed Mark2 tuner

    I recently had a Mark2 tuner installed. I live in NZ, so it was not done by Darren. The tuner picks up PAL channels fine (well 2 anyway, as my frequencies are different to the setup on the image) and...

    The other way I could do it to watch specific programs in stereo in the bedroom, would be to record the program in the lounge via my STB (in stereo), and then by using MFS-FTP I could copy it across...

    So if the NICAM is decoded PRIOR to the Tivo (ie via a STB or NICAM video), then the Tivo can encode it as part of the digital stream and then output it to the television.

    Thanks for the quick reply guys.

    I understand the PAL tuner pass through works - that's good to hear.
    So, the Tivo receives the RF signal, records it in mono, and outputs it in mono.

    NZ Stereo Support

    I'm aware that as it stands there is no way for US Series 1 tivo (PAL modded) to decode NICAM stereo in NZ via a FTA PAL tuner. Hopefully work is still ongoing, but I understand it may be a "dead...
