Municipality of Grevena: It is necessary to re-tune the television receivers on Friday 9 April - The Useful Steps
The Friday 9 April 2021, will be carried out jointly by both terrestrial digital broadcasting providers, the ERT and DIGEA, the second digital transition, as provided by the renewed Frequency Map prepared by the State and concerns the areas: Grevena, Kastoria, Kozani and Florina.
Those residents who receive a terrestrial digital signal from the broadcasting centers AGIOS ATHANASIOS, ΚΕΛΛΗ, CLOSED, GATE, ΒΟΥΝΑΣΑ, ΜΕΤΑΞΑΣ, TSOTYLI, WATER TOWER, will need on 9 April 2021 to resonate their receiver (TV or set-top box), as now the TV program will be broadcast on new frequencies.
Otherwise they will lose all the channels and watch black on their screens.
With the new digital transition, they will not need to change anything in their equipment. Αρκεί να κάνουν μια new automatic search προκειμένου να συντονίσουν τη συσκευή τους στις νέες συχνότητες.
The following steps are required to carry out the coordination:
- to go to their receiver menu
- select "Install" if they have a set-top box or "Settings" if they have a TV (Different formulations may be used depending on the receiver)
- to perform automatic tuning, where the receiver searches for and stores in memory all available programs, or perform manual tuning, where it stores programs of a specific frequency in memory
- at the end of the search they press OK / YES
- choose exit (exit) to attend the program they want
According to a decision of the European Parliament, the spectrum zone of 700 MHz currently used by digital TV will be available for 5G network development by mobile phone companies. So, the new transition is essentially to make the transition of television networks to the spectrum that remains for digital television.
