How to check if the TV is DVB-T2?

To check if the TV is compatible with DVB-T2, you can also tune into the test channel of the new digital TV, at number 100, checking that the wording “Test HEVC Main10” appears. The same check can be done by selecting channel 200.

What DVB-T2?

DVB-T2 (Digital Video Broadcasting - Second Generation Terrestrial) is the latest generation standard for broadcasting on the digital terrestrial platform of the European DVB consortium.

When does digital terrestrial 2 arrive?

In 2023 (perhaps in January) the Switch-Off will be performed to the DVB-T2 standard, the second generation digital terrestrial with HEVC encoding, the technology that allows you to keep (almost) all current channels in a reduced frequency space.

How to see if the TV is new digital enabled?

To check if the TV is able to receive broadcasts with the new standards, you must first check if it receives the channels in high definition (HD), which are currently displayed on 501-502-503-504-505-506-507.

How to know if the TV is compatible?

To check the compatibility it is possible to do a simple check by accessing channels 100 and 200. If the message “TEST HEVC Main10” appears, it will not be necessary to change the device. If not, you need a new decoder or a new TV.

How to understand whether to change TV?

If the message HEVC Main10 test appears, then it means that the TV is ready to receive the new technology in view of the definitive transition. If, on the other hand, you do not see anything, then it means that the TV may have to be replaced with a latest generation one.

Which channel to see if the TV is compatible?
