CCC iDrive (TV related) question...

might have been discussed already, but can you guys get any digital HD TV reception in your car (ie 7 HD, or 9 HD) ??? i've tried it everywhere and cannot get it to work.

when the channel list comes up after auto-scanning the digital HD channels are listed, but once selected i cant watch them. i have no issues with the standard definition channels (ie 7 or 9...)

TIA

by digital do you mean High Definition?

if i understand correctly all the channels are digital, the only difference being whether they are HD or SD.

No The channels are both Analogue and Digital. Our screens wont display HD anyway.

I never could receive any ABC digital channels just analogue, I changed the country code on the TV to a few different countries and found if I select the United Arab Emirates and do a scan I get all the stations including ABC digital stations.

strange, mine lists the HD channels during the auto-scan, channel 7HD, 9HD, ABC HD are all there, but when i select any of them all i get is either a black or green screen.

any other non HD channels, like 7, 9, 10, ABC, SBS... work fine. i might play with the country settings see if that makes a difference...
