Yes. Thanks. I saw that the av could still remain plugged as long as I choose what mode/source I want using the tv remote. I could easily switch from HDMI to av and vice-versa.

Thanks.

Yeah also remember the cable from the gotenna needs not to be tampered with it should go the port behind the gotv to receive signals, you can either use hdmi cable (better) or av cables (red, white and yellow)

Cool. But when subscribing to HDMI port, I believe there's absolutely Zero chances of getting home theatres to transmit audio from the decoder nor from the TV, just the TV speakers...

Just three modifications were made on the new decoder which are
1. Antenna
2. USB port
3. HDMI output

I bet the new decoder is worthless to *old subscribers with home theater*. To old subscriber, since you have a USB port on your TV so you've got nothing to worry about. And the stations on the old decoders are already upgraded. So old decoder owners, kindly leave the new decoder to those just subscribing to GOtv and worry less *if you fall in the category above*


Gracias, amigos

This thread is kind of old though.
The new GoTv gocoda 2019 doesn't com with HDMI.
I actually prefer HDMI so would rather buy 2017/18 model than the new one.

About the HDMI enabled Gotv decoder; I've been trying to connect the decoder with another TV via the RF out using a coaxial cable but it's not connecting.
Is the RF out port really working? Any suggestion on way out in making it work.

Please, I need your assistant. I just got a new Gotv decoder. It is quite different from the old one. Behind the new decoder are RF in, RF out, USB, AV out and power ports. How do I connect it to TV? I have tried all that I could, it's not working. Kindly help.

...connecting your Gotv to your TV using the HDMI port rather than the AV cables will give a quality High Definition Pictures/images.

The USB port enables ur decoder to be read files from your flash drive... With that you can manually upgrade or decoder or even tweak your decoder to view some premium stations for free...

I just got this kind of decoder, the package comes with portable kind of AV cable

One end of this cable have type of audio plug, the other end have normal three colour AV plug.

Plug the audio plug side to the decoder (their small hole, like audio socket at the back), other to the tv

Yes and no

Yes using HDMI instead of normal av cable will give u better pictures, but if the channel u are watching is not in HD u won't get HD images but still better than using av cables. U will nromally see the HD written on the right or left upper corner of channles that are in HD like the ss3 HD in the image below. If u have an HDTv u really have no reason to not use HDMI instead of AV

No u cannot use ur flash to watch movies through the decoder. It's stictly for manually updating or tweaking the decoder. I wouldn't wanna mess with that.
lies u can watch movies wit d usb port

freemi:

Have u tried it and it worked? What input do u need to put ur tv at to access the usb port.? As far as I know, the USB port on gotv and DSTV (Even DSTV explora) are for service use only. They cannot be used to watch movies from USB flash drives. If u have been able to use it for that then kindly explain to us how it works.

please help,can I exchange my old Gotv decoder with the new one with Hdm1 port?
You cant change any old decoder to the new usb and hdmi supported ones.....you can only get the same old decoder and only if the old one is faulty in anyway which they will check and test by themselves....you can buy the new decoder @ #6,900(maybe with a month sub of gotv max) @ their main offices

When your gotv signal strength and quality is at 62 and 72 respectively and it isn't still showing , what might be wrong? How can I achieve pictures display although not yet subscribe and channel 1 and 91 are not showing , anytime I tried to tune to any of the two channels , it starts showing Error E48- searching for network

If your tv is not hd compatible or your connection is via avi instead of the hdmi port, you won't have a good picture

That's where the problem lies, the best AV can offer is SD and not HD.

The latest gotv is a downgrade compared to previous version.
