TV's working with Saorview - The List

If your TV has sound but No Pictures - it's then a UK Freeview TV and your TV will NEVER work with Irish Digital and you'll need a Set Top Box or new TV with an MPEG-4 Tuner


I'll start things off and will update as others post details of working models below. We'll take a working model as one which has now sucessfully scanned in 3e - yes ? Also, please confirm in your reply posts if MHEG-5 is working too.

What is MHEG5

It’s a replacement for Teletext, with pictures and video optionally in the pages of text which should be much faster to load than old TVs. On RTE, the current program continues to be displayed in a window to the right of the Text Service. It does a lot more (potentially) than simply pretty text. “mainly” is the important word. It gives interactive access to Hidden video streams (e.g. BBC Red Button). Allows quizzes, access to information on ethernet port, More featured interactive Program guide than basic DVB program information, text with embedded video or changing images. Also can manage Over The Air firmware updates. (OTA).

32pfl5604h - I own This one
37pfl5604h
42pfl5604h - Friend owns this one
47pfl5604h - Have seen it fully functioning

32pfl7604h
37pfl7604h
42pfl7604h - Friend owns this one
47pfl7604h

32pfl9604h
37pfl9604h
42pfl9604h
47pfl9604h - friend owns this one - lucky sod

32pfl5605h
32pfl3605h MPEG4 Version
32pfl7605h

All current philips models excluding the 3000 series basic non mpeg4 version - not available anymore -

Given the main bulk of the philips units all support mpeg four and ive seen at least one from each series i think there a safe bet - For best functionality set to UK and upgrade the firmware - MHEG5 compatable with digital teletext and EPG functional -

The list should indicate if MHEG5 works or not. It might be used for interactive selction menu of extra sports video for Olympics? Like BBC does for Wimbledon.

The three I have at home are all coming up towards a year or more old now, so unlikely to be in many retailers, but anyway:

LG 26LG3100, MPEG4 and MHEG5
Samsung Syncmaster 2033HD LS20CFVKF/EN MPEG 4 no MHEG5 (With the regional settings I have, possibly)
Samsung Syncmaster T200HD LS20TDVSUV/EN MPEG4 no MHEG5 (at all)

What's the best way to check that MHEG5 is working?

PS: Shouldn't this list be a sticky?
