The Tivusat platform is undergoing some changes, recently the cards have changed to a new encyption, so are no longer compatible with the older versions. All Tivusat is (almost) all HD now, matching France (2016) and Germany (2020) with all HD output. A new EPG electronic programme guide is being implemented ( Tivusat’s own model ) , which is different to the old DVB standard epg, as used by German channels. There are several updates of software for various models planned for Easter 2021.
The DigiQuest Q20 and Q30 are the very latest models from DigiQuest, following on from the popular 6996 model . The Q20 is a straightforward receiver of small size, simple in use, simple to setup as most of the functions are semi-automatic. The Q30 is a PVR (personal video recorder ) which means you can record from the Q30’s USB socket, using any USB device – memory stick or USB hard drive, however, choose one of 500Gb or 1 Tb for optimum performance.
I can supply your card, to be activated by your own Codice Fiscale number , or pre-activated. No extra charge.
The Q series receivers have HDMI for its main TV connection, the scart is still there for viewers with older Tvs and there is the Digital Audio output ( coaxial) which is phono/RCA type socket for your speakers/amp/soundbar connection.
The Tivusat card is inserted in the side slot ( just visible to the right in the picture ) note: only for the NEW standard Tivu cards.
Good to see they have retained the on/off and channel buttons, on the box, so many new receivers have no manual buttons these days.
In tests, the Q20 performed well, a 65cm dish gave more than adequate signal is all regions of the UK for reception of all the Italian channels.
The Q20 and Q30 represent excellent value for the Italian Tivu platform, coming in considerably under the usual price of these receivers, especially the Q20.
