[vicsireland] Re: getting the radio on digital tv

Hi Sabrina
 
I'm not sure.  Maybe your set up is different.
 
Can you type in numbers  to get the tv stations,  i.e.  on my  system
typing 101 brings up RTE 1.
 
Otherwise,  I suggest you contact the people you bought your digital package
from.
 
Tim

No Tim it must be different here. tried typing in 901 and giving it a few
seconds but nothing happens. If I use my arrows, it brings me back to the TV
stations again.

Hi Sabrina
 
It depends on what digital tv system  you have,   i.e.  is it Sky  or
NTL/Corrus.
 
The easiest way is to type  in the number of  the station  using the  number
pad on  the remote.
 
For example,  for NTL systems  the  radio stations  start at number 901  and
go up from there.  For example,  rte radio 1  is 901,  news talk  is 932,
bbc radio 4 is 910 etc.
 
The best thing is to get a person  with eyes to go through  the stations
with you  and  you can  either memorise the stations you want  or write down
the numbers.
 
Of course,  for sky  and other digital  systems  the numbers will differ.
 
Tim

Hi Tony,
 
The DAB radios   will not pick up bbc stations or other stations not
broadcasting from Ireland.
 
This is one of the primary reasons why I wouldn't be very  interested in
such technology.
 
After all,  if you have digital television then you can  receive a far wider
range of radio stations.
 
Cheers,
 
Tim

Hi Brian, & All,
 
I have a question or two re "value for money".
 
My knowledge of DAB is not vast but could you let us know are the beeb
stations received over here accessible in that format?
 
I know that RTE are trialling DAB at present, so I just wonder is it perhaps
a little soon to be rushing out to purchase?
 
I feel that I will "splash-out" when the concept has been more widely
embraced and developed and consequently that the price will drop!
 
I presume that it speaks what is on the screen, or is it only somethings?
 
Enjoy!

Hi Gavin and Philip,
 
Some of the features of the digital radio are:
1. All prompts and information are spoken in a clear and easy to understand
voice.
2. It has ten pre-sets for your favourite radio stations, which are easily
accessed from the front of the machine.
3. it has a talking alarm clock with two alarms, which can be set for
weekdays or weekends.
4. tapping the handle at the top of the unit once lightly, will give you the
current time.
5. The clock is automatically set from a radio signal, which will
automatically ajust when the clock goes forward or backwards in spring or
autumn.
6. You can add an additional speaker, which will give you stereo sound.
7. There is a headphone and a line out socket. Which means it can be
connected to a stereo amblifier if you wish.
8. There is a sleep timer.
9. There is an information key, which will speak the information relating to
the track name or what ever information is displayed on the screen for each
particular station.
 
The only negative aspect, is that it cannot be powered by battery, so must
be powered directly from the mains.
 
Is it worth the money? yes, I think so. Digital radio is certainly the way
of the future.
 
Hope that helps.
 
Brian.
