Most of you know that Sky are currently carrying out tests on Astra1D
at 28.5 Degrees East.
Look at 11.778 V and 11.856 V & you'll see these transmissions.
The latest on the receivers for BSkyB Digital is that Pace,Grundig &
have receivers ready for the launch -likewise Amstrad although I
haven't heard much
news from them.
[I have previously posted some details of the hardware.]
The big question is when will they launch ???
Perhaps we should start a sweepstake!!!
There are certainly delays due to the OpenTV software not being
ready.OpenTV are a
3rd party software developer under contract from BSkyB.So any delays
will not be the fault
of the receiver manufacturers themselves.
I would certainly expect to see working demonstrations at the "Cable &
(trade only) show which is at Earls Court,London from May 18th-20th.
Perhaps they'll use the event for the launch.
Has anyone got any further information or news regarding launch dates
