Questions about the converter

A converters can be ordered at a unit cost of CHF 89.-

A converter is a device which is connected between the HD cable connection and the TV set. This device converts the incoming digital signals into analogue signals. This enables you to view digital channels on an older television set which is not equipped with a DVB-C receiver, although not in HD quality.

The converter utilises very little power - zero to 0.5 Watts in standby mode, and about 5.5 Watts while in use. For comparison: our HD Mediaboxes utilise 1 Watt in standby mode, and 15 Watts while in use.
