guys what is the normal Signal Quality of SkyCable Dual Def.
I am getting 69-70% (strength is 68%) both SD and HD channels which causes pixelation when there are fast moving things on screen.

Does anyone know if Sky Dual Def has 5.1 audio? Or stereo only?

Some quick questions for those who have used the irecord functionality of Sky Cable's Dual Def Plan (using the new black HD Box and external storage):

1) What is the file format out the output file? I read in an earlier post that it is mpeg2.ts.  Can someone confirm this?

2) Is the output file (saved TV show) saved in the external drive?

3) Can you use this file and view it using other media players (i.e. WDTV Live)? Or is this only viewable using the Sky Cable Digibox?

4) If only viewable using the digibox, does anyone know of a software program that can convert this to another file format and make it viewable using other media players?

The reason I ask is that I have a brother who works abroad and is a big UAAP fan, I used to record the games using my Sansui DVD-R, I then send these to him so that he can watch it, however, it recently died on me and I'm thinking of getting a new one (having a hard time deciding what to buy), if irecord has this functionality, this could save me some money :)

Thanks in advance.

.ts yung file niya at naka save sa hard drive pero hindi yata siya pwedeng i transfer sa pc. Sinubukan ko rin maghanap ng software na .ts to mp4,avi etc. ayaw parin niya. Baka sa digibox lang talaga siya pwedeng panuorin and it sux :(

meron ba rf out ang Sky HD STB? kasi mas maganda gamitin ang default tuner sa modern tv ngayon kasi mas maganda ang interface nila den it has smart features such as S recommendations where your tv would suggest some recommendations based on your preferrence or your viewing habit.

Thanks sir for the quick response, you are right, it sucks :(  Most probably, Skycable included its own encryption in the output file to make it only viewable using the digibox, haaay! Back to looking for a PVR then.

Thanks again.

Pag kasali na Myx, Cinema One and ANC, Balls na lang pala papadagdag ko :D
Sana maayos na nila pag-switch from All-in Pack to Dual-Def Titanium kasi interested din ako. Maka-tawag nga later. ;)

Hello PDVD, can anybody confirm if your signal quality is affected during peak hours?
would like to verify if this is based on a particular area only.

the scenario is: signal quality is @ 60-70 during day time... then it goes down to 30-40 prime time. resulting to degraded pixelated viewing on such occasion.

Btw, this applies to those in dual def.

just checking... thanks!

bat ang sama ng audio sa irecord? meron siyang noise na "pfft" palagi. Could it be because ginagamit ko sa PC and PS3 yung hard drive or ganun talaga siya?

Dito sa Pasig okay naman signal ng SD & HD channels anytime of the day. Walang mapapansin na degradation.

Oo nga eh. Kung tutuusin, mas mataas pa yung 1799. 499+1199 = 1698 lang.

Grabe ang laki ng fee. Kaya once magka fibr dito sa area namin mag switch na talaga ako to cignal. Mas ok ang channel lineup nila, mas bang for your buck. And yung champions league sa balls stream ko nalang.
