View Full Version : 42pfl7662d/12 MPEG4 to MPEG2 decoding by CI.

02-18-2012, 09:07 PM
Hello, that's my first post on this forum.
I've got 42pfl7662d/12 TV.
This TV doesn't decode MPEG4 but MPEG2.
I bought a conventer MPEG4 to MPEG2 in CI like this: CONVERTER MPEG4 TO MPEG2 (http://megasat.net.pl/dvb-t/397-modul-mpeg2-mpeg4-dvb-t-.html)
In digital mode TV sees digital signal but can't find any services [and can't find any channels].
TV sees this CI.

Software version is: IdtvZapper_HW261.256_SW2.0.57.

Questions are:
1. is this the newest software for this TV,
2. if not - where can I find newest and how to upgrade that,
3. does enyone have any experiance with this CI?
4. any other advices in that issue.


EDIT: 19.02.2012, 9.30AM
I backed to "first start mode" using menu button on TV and TV found digital channels. Now is only CI issue - video mode is not supported.

EDIT: 19.02.2012, 0.30PM
firmware: LC72ELH-1.15

Now I know how to upgrade firmware and I found this:

Next question - is that true? Where can I find firmware 1.16.

Hi Thomas,
I don't want do make my TV set to see MPEG4 becouse it is impossible becouse of hardware.
I want, using a card pointed in link, convert MPEG4 to MPEG2 using CI.
Problem is that my TV do not cooperate with this card.
