Default Explora 2a HDMI video standard

Please will someone provide information as to the output video format of the HDMI port as to the following criteria?

1. HDMI version 1.2, 1.3, 1.4?
2. Colourspace RGB, YCbCr - 4:4:4, 4:2:2 or 4:2:0?
3. Video levels if YCbCr 16->235 (video legal) or 16->254 (with super white)?

I would also like to make a suggestion as to a possible improvement for user experience. It would be so nice to have or the ability to have some test patterns for basic calibration settings such as contrast and brightness patterns.

Thanks in advance for any constructive information regarding this subject.

Hi there

I've moved your thread to the PVR decoders section - MC Sandipa and Mpho can assist you.

This is a simple request for information that should be provided with the specification of the decoder. This has been out for a couple of days now and no one can answer. I find it disgusting that DSTV does not know how their "own" decoder works.

I find one of the most serious failings of Multichoice products is the total absence of published detailed technical specifications - not even power consumption which I have to deduce inaccurately from the rating of the power supply.

Gone are the days when there was a decent technical specification section in the manual.

Have to work these things out for yourself by trial and error in the absence of test equipment.

There are cheaper options, I suppose that one is one of the best and most accurate.
