    Default Top Marks To Top Field


    Unlike Humax which responded after several weeks to a technical inquiry I want all RDI'ERS to know that they are 100 percent safe with the Topfield brand in relation to customer service direct from Korea .
    My first question to them was answered in 12 hours , my second question in just TEN MINUTES after emailing Korea.
    I highly reccommend the TOPFIELD brand
    See below

    Dear xxxx,

    In general, satellite HD programmes are encoded by MPEG4.
    If you have no problem with watching LUXE HD TV in high definition, you will have no problem with the Voom HD TV, either.

    Default TopField

    Dear C-BAND,

    Thanks for the Info.
    Some times ago, I have read somewhere there was a deal between UBC of Thailand & Humax of Korea to provide decoders for UBC which is TrueVision now.
    Nowadays what we are seeing is TopField decoders not Humax.
    Humax & TopField are same company with different product Name?
    Like National, Panasonic & Technics, they are Masushita from Japan.
    Please enlighten me if you know.

    Regards.

    This is what I know.
    HUMAX & TOPFIELD are both S.Korean Companies.
    Humax is very much orientated to the UK as they have a factory in Northern Ireland.
    Topfield is orientated to Germany where they have a huge market.
    I have both models...the Humax in the UK and the Topfield in Thailand.

    The Humax mentions MPEG 4 in its manual and menu.

    The Topfield makes no mention of MPEG 4 hence my worry as so many channels are now going over to MPEG 4.
    Below is the specification for the 7700HSCI....CAN YOU SEE ANY REFERENCE TO MPEG 4 ?

    ps One great improvement with the Topfield. I used to HATE that make as unlike EVERY OTHER MAKE they did not allow you to add or change sat names. Thus if you bought the box in Germany there was no Panamsat 2 or 8 !
    You had to download software for extra channels ...if you knew how !
    Now they have a sat name edit function just like all other receivers.
    I think they listened to my complaints and that of others.

    instead of junping in and buying a stock standard HD receiver, you perhaps should have rearched a bit more and bought one with a PVR harddrive , like this .

    .................................................. ....
    See the problem Brand new model and first item in spec says :

    "MPEG-2 HD,SD Digital and fully DVB compliant "

    Where's the mention of MPEG 4

    The good news came this morning from Topfield . See their email below :

    "Recording capability will be available on every TF7700HSCI.

    Default Topfield Enigma

    SOLUTION FOUND
    Topfield HD receivers NEVER refers to MPEG 4. in their spec and that is /was very worrying to many as MPEG 2 is also used for HD .

    Why ? Because there are various versions.
    Topfield says instead "compatible with H264."
    H264 is the current version of MPEG 4.
    SO NOW WE KNOW

    H264 is used to compress the video data stream to almost HALF of mpeg2 data stream without loss in quality. there are a LOT of mpeg4 variants out there, but so far H264 (which is also known as mpeg4 avc or mpeg4 part 10 (maybe there will be part 12 etc, lol) is the best so far.
