Today is SRF HD Day (29 Feb 2012)

Remember to re-tune your TV receiver to pick up the new SRF HD channels

I know that my provider (upc cablecom) says that from 1700 tonight:

a) for any set-top box from them, unplug it from power for 10s, then plug in again. Box will reboot and find all the new channels

b) for any TV using a DigiCard, a new quick-scan must be made as per the TVs instructions. TV will rescan and find the new channels

(upc cablecom have also done a channel reshuffle, the above catches the new channel order as well)

I know I'm looking forward to more HD channels

What about us poor people who use whatever signal comes from the wall? Is there any hope to see HD?

I think I'm right in saying that HD can only be transmitted digitally - so you need a set-top-box - but this plugs into the wall.

You also need an HD tele.

That explained why the UK Channel 5 and BBC HD had disappeared this morning, turned my set off and on again and they both reappeared!

Assuming you have Cablecom. You can buy a 'Digicard' for a one-off cost of CHF99.-. This will give you the HD channels - provided your TV has a CI+ card slot...

Where can you get a digicard? I currently have the hd recorder box, but my new tv does have the digicard slot. I wouldnt mind trying the digicard to see how that works. I didnt see how to order it on the cablecom website.
Can you just call and order it?
