  1. terrestrial + satellite

    @feraug I agree, that if such mixed lists are allowed, it will be possible for a user to mix channels in such a stupid way that it takes too long to switch from one channel to the next (if e.g. mechanical re-positioning is necessary). But this is the responsibility of the user. Sorting the right way would be the the solution. If, for some reason, the user insists for a wild mixed channel list, then he must accept the delays. In any case it will be faster that doing it completely manual and pressing 8 to 10 keys on the remote control and checking visually for every key that it was the right one. Against your argumentation speaks also the QVIEW key on the remote control. I use it quite often in the following situation: watching a terrestrial channel but want to see what is running on a sat channel. I press <LIST> <red-point> <down-arrow> <down-arrow> <OK> <down-arrow> <OK> and <exit>. These are 8 keypressings to activate the SAT receiver. After that small Odyssey, i can watch the last used SAT channel. Now pressing only once the QVIEW, i can switch between SAT and DVB-T any times i need. But the game is over, if i switch any other channel in between. Anyhow this proves, that it is possible to have mixed lists. Please believe me, i am scolding like hell, every time i have to make that switching. I have 2 LG TV sets (i thought it would be beneficial to have the same remote control). I have been working for over 20 years as an RF development engineer, so please don't tell me, that this is the best way to do it. Anyhow, as an engineer i will find a solution after my mistake to buy LG sets (build my own remote control for example) because its a shame for humans to do that stupid switching when easier ways are possible. On the other side i must admit that i am very satisfied with the overall picture quality and sensitivity of both TV sets.
  2. Switsching from Testarestical to SAT channels

    Fully agree ...i had just posted the following in an older thread .. I am an electronics engineer with an experience of more than 30 years. Just thinking logically i conclude that the program list can be created mixing channels from any source. If, for any reason, switching from one source to another requires a delay it will be of course accepted. It is the responsibility of the user to optimize his program list in that respect. The way the software is implemented now is to my opinion unacceptable, because it forces the user to perform actions (send a lot of commands using the remote control) that could have been done by the tv's processor. I feel like a slave each time i want to switch from DVB-T to DVB-S I recently bought 2 LG-sets and know i must buy 2 programmable remote controls, because LG engineers refuse to think logically...that is the reason for my frustration I wonder really what is happening there in LG ...
