    Hello,
    I have already searched a few topics but none of them explained the matter to the end.
    Well, I would like to connect a Philips Brilliance 170p LCD monitor to a set-top box (WIWA hd90 mc) as a TV set. I know that I will need a pass only do not know which, the monitor has input on the Dvi and vga. And I have one more question, is it possible to have some modem internet or buy something?

    Is such an adapter good? https://3.allegroimg.com/s512/030613/3375beb24b9eb26b5c4e8ece8da3

    Thank you in advance

    It's best to buy an HDMI - DVI cable and an aux cable (3.5 jack) to connect the sound.

    As for the internet, the decoder must support the WIFI usb module and the entire internet is limited to the installed applications in the decoder. You probably do not support it.

    The adapter provided by you is good theoretically, but it may not be possible to connect it. The cable is better. The audio IN jack you have in this monitor?

    If you have an HDMI cable, it is an adapter, and if it's not like the colleague above wrote.

    If you have an HDMI cable, you can find the adapter as above in Biedronka. link

    Yes, I have such a nest.
    And how about the antenna issue?

    Welcome. You connect the antenna to the decoder, because you have a DVB-T tuner there. greetings

    If you mean, does it require a good antenna to receive anything? Depends on the location if you live in a city, you only need a room antenna and you should find a few channels, but if you have a weak signal, an external mast is required.

    And is there any way to make such a TV more enjoyable? (with this decoder) more channels, internet etc?
    I ask out of curiosity.

    I would not like to be a bad prophet, but I have some doubts.
    According to the specifications, this monitor does not support computer only TV resolution.
    It also does not support HDCP.
    You can forget about HD, the highest supported resolution is 1280x1024.

    Colleagues are 100% sure that this monitor will work with a TV decoder?

    You can change the resolution in the decoder. Will work with the rest on YT are examples.

    I see that a colleague sowed a seed of uncertainty. The monitor will operate at maximum with HD 1280x720 resolution (this is how much it can handle this monitor), however, due to the fact that currently channels are broadcast in 16: 9 format, the image from the top and bottom will have stripes as in the following video.

    I have one more question if the cable (adapter) must have 24 + 1 plugs or 18 + 1 suffices? The monitor has 24 + 1.
    And what satellite jack should I buy from the antenna? I mean, is there a difference of 6.8mm and 7mm (will it fit the decoder) because I have an antenna but it lacks a plug.
  • Level 38  
    Theoretically, the 18 + 1 link should be enough, but maybe it is worth choosing the 24 + 1 to be up to future solutions with higher resolution. In such cables, the fact that it has a dual link plug 24 + 1 does not mean that these additional pins are connected to HDMI because it is Chinese and it all depends on luck they do it as they want.

    And you can advise which satellite plug for the antenna cable to buy? Because I see that there are different 7mm 6.8mm etc.

    It depends on the thickness of the cable and the connector is called the F-connector. I do not recommend such a device at home, and it collects noise by analogue.

    I was looking for something like that with screws, so you do not have to worry about the thickness of the wire.

    The only question is how the decoder will react to such a solution (and Wiwy is quite chimerical).

    So you may find that nothing will come out.

    This is the normal resolution of 720p declared by the decoder manufacturer of the problem so it should not be.
    link Most set-top boxes have something like automatically adjusting the resolution to the screen size at home in TV CRT, even 1080p I could set.
    As for 100% confidence, it never has it until it does not work itself out. The current equipment is not capricious and despite meeting the requirements it happens that it does not work though it should. As for HDCP, there is protection against high-resolution copying of materials such cheap decoders rather do not have (the decoders themselves allow you to record the material on a USB drive).

    I do not know how in this monitor, but in 19 "Fujitsu-Siemens the sound from the monitor speakers is simply hopeless (poor dynamics, poor timbre, quiet). Normal TV acoustically blinks the dvbt-monitor decoder combination. I solved the problem by putting an old cassette player behind the monitor ( connected with an ordinary audio cable with cinch plugs to the audio output of the dvbt decoder).

    Everything works, thank you all for your help
