A section of cable operators here Thursday demanded at least two months for complete digitisation of cable TV in the city.

The forum of cable operators in the city, Cable Shilpa Bachao Committee, said “forced digitisation would hit the customers” and that the metropolis was not yet ready for complete digitisation as only 65 percent of the total customers have installed set-top boxes.

“Until and unless the set-top boxes are available to a minimum of 90 percent of the customers, blocking of analogue channels should not occur. At least 60 days would be needed for the process to be completed,” Cable Shilpa Bachao Committee convener Mrinal Chatterjee said here.

“About 25 lakh customers in Kolkata have installed the set-top boxes till date. It is not more than 65 percent of the total cable customers in the city,” Chatterjee said.

According to him, the problem started with the multi-system operators or MSOs procuring less set-top boxes.”

As MSOs were not able to procure the boxes in time, there had been a non-availability here,” Chatterjee averred.

Earlier, in a meeting with state Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim all city-based cable operators and MSOs had forwarded a proposal for ordering a complete blocking of analogue channels by Feb 1.

Every factor works fine for some time after which apparently at random my screen goes blank. At these times my TV becomes unresponsive. Any buttons I press, input volume funnel energy, nothing happens. Basically unplug my computer in the TV after that it becomes responsive again but the moment I plug the pc into the TV exactly the same factor happens. Basically leave everything off for around ten minutes approximately it really works acceptable for a while again. Sorry if this sounds like kinda a operate on, but any tips could be appreciated.

    I am very little of the expert on this stuff, but they are very good, right?

    With that said, I connected my PS3, using the original red-colored, whitened and yellow cables, using the “audio-video/multi scart” option, ’cause it’s the only person that does not blackout after i choose it, also it looks…FRICKIN’ HORRIBLE! My Dear DEAR GOD, What’s THIS? Jesus ALL MIGHTY! They appear worse than the usual PS2! Edgy, grainy, fuzzy, also it makes me poke my eyes out. Basically connect the PS3 using the old TV, that is a SD one, it’s all regulated crisp and obvious, also it almost looks perfect, when compared with the brand new LCD…

    This type of disapointment…

    How can this be happening? Must I return the LCD? Would an High-definition multimedia interface cable actually work things out?
