10 more days to go until transmission will switch from analogue to Digital for the Townsville, Home hill,ayr.

Who like this idea I come up with or not since we have coming up to the 6 of December 2011 that when analogue switch off so why don't welcome the new HD channels call.



It's is a great idea I come with with they may show how to lean how to change to Digital before it's get very close to december 6 as well all the update you need to know when a New HD channels is coming soon so who is with me on that one or not?

I thought I had found a solution to not having a DTV or STB, I went down to Harvey Norman on the weekend spotted a average mid level DTV, and applied for one of those interest free “buy-now- pay-later” deals. But sadly got refused due to my low income. Oh well, guess I am not really missing much!

Also not eligble for any of the assistance on offer from the Govt.

Got a quote from Radio Rentals, to rent a DTV, min period is 36 months @ $21 a week with a buyback option at the end of the period of $200. That's (36x$21)+$200=$956 total. The same TV at JB Hifi costs $595 outright. Is that good value? Or a rip?

Well they have to make a profit and you don't have to buy it at the end, just give it back and rent another newer model.

That's a good point. But on the contract I was given to peruse the buyback was already ticked. I will go back and see them about that.

Sandfly, if you lived closer to me I would donate a tele to you. I have a couple of older ones that still work fine. They just became surplus to my needs when hubby moved into the camp instead of the flat. Now they sit here doing nothing.

Checked out the local garage sales? Could be someone updating to the new system by buying a new tele instead of getting a box. Garage sales tend to be cheaper than the second hand shops these days.

Garage sales are a great idea. When I had a reasonable income prior to the GFC, I would often frequent them. But these days when I have a $20 per month fuel budget, extra driving is not something I engage in.

Sandfly, with your current TV (and the funky colours) unplug it from the power point overnight. Used to work for my old TV, which wasn't that old at the time (3 weeks old when it first happened) According to the manufacturer it was caused by a static build up. Same TV still working fine to this very day.

I've got an old set top box laying around here somewhere. Send me a PM sandfly and I'll post it down if you want it.

Your math is way out mate. I just realised.

You forgot there is 4 weeks in most months. Others are a bit more.

So that is 36 months x 4 weeks x $21.

36x4 =144 weeks
144x $21 = VERY large profit for them. ($3024)
