DVB-T2 in Germany?

Post by Mirko » Wed Mar 08, 2017 5:20 pm


I am interested in buying the terrestrial version of the VBox to use with DVB-T2 in the near future. However, I can find no information on whether it will work in Germany. DVB-T2 over here is special in that it uses a different Codec (HEVC aka h.265) than most other countries.

Is it necessary for the VBox to support a certain codec at all? As I understand it, the box will merely stream or record the content, not decode it?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Mirko,
You are absolutely correct, the VBox keeps the original broadcasted encoding
Therefore the VBox supports any encoding standard including HEVC H.265

I recently received my XTI-3442, and no problem with DVB-T2/HEVC for the free German channels.
