Decoding: MPEG-2 picture and MPEG-4 detection

In this mode the signal will be decoded according to its standard.

When decoding an analog channel (cable or terrestrial only), the TV EXPLORER shows with the video and audio, information about the channel on tune, the name of the channel plan and the TV system.

If the signal is digital, it is possible to display the SERVICE LIST and it shows all the programs and services available within the tuned channel. Selecting one particular program or service becomes very intuitive using the encoder and/or the arrow keys to show all the data related to the program.

If the program selected uses MPEG-2 compression, the picture and audio appear together with the program data for a few seconds and then using the whole screen. If it is MPEG-4, it will be possible to detect the program data such as name of the channel, bitrate, etc.

With the TV EXPLORER II+ it is possible to use the CAM module interface to decode and display some types of MPEG-4 programs even if they are encrypted.
