TDT and HD in Samsung 32B550A5W in Spain

Desde mediados de a?o, tengo un TV Samsung LE32B550A5W. Tengo antena colectiva TDT. Por otro lado, tengo contratado un paquete con "Digital+". Este ?ltimo est? ofreciendo "iPlus", y ya emiten 15 canales en HD. Antes de contratar "iPlus" he buscado opiniones sobre mi TV, y me he encontrado con un comentario, de un ingl?s, desesperanzador: "A pesar de ser un televisor de alta definici?n, el descodificador de TDT no es HD y por lo tanto usted no podr? ver ning?n canal de TDT de alta definici?n a medida que est?n disponibles (esto no se puede resolver con actualizaciones de firmware - es un problema de hardware). Esto no me molesta que si todo lo que quiero hacer es ver discos BluRay."
Agradecer?a si alguien puede confirmarme si, contratando "iPlus", podr? verlo en HD con este TV. Y tambi?n si se ven en HD los canales generalistas que ya emiten en TDT-HD.
Gracias, V?ctor.

Duplicate posts.

No need for duplicate posts, so I have deleted the one you posted in the "Computer Help" forum so you can concentrate on this one.

I would guess that your Spanish Language post is going to cause problems here, as this is an English speaking forum.

About double message TDT-HD Samsung in Spain

Dear Marcos. Thanks for your contribution and advice. I doubled the messages because I thought I was wrong (Google translator has translated from Spanish into English, and then again in Spanish). I received another message in Forums from the Samsung Costumer Care Centre, with answer to my questions. This is what they say: "Your TV supports HD content through external sources like DVD or Blu-Ray, but the digital channel tuner does not support HD content (MPEG4). To tune these channels need to install an external tuner Freeview HD."
Again thank you very much, Victor.

Here's how I translated this:

Since the middle of the year, I have a Samsung TV LE32B550A5W. I have DVB-T antenna system. On the other hand, I have hired a package with "Digital +". This latest offering "iPlus" is issued as 15 channels in HD. Before hiring "iPlus" I have sought my options on TV, and I found a comment from an Englishman hopeless: "Despite being a high-definition TV, the DTT decoder is not HD and therefore you not be able to see ningn (???) DTT channel high definition that is available (this can not be resolved with firmware updates - it's a hardware problem). This does not bother me if all I want to do is watch BluRay discs. "
I would appreciate if someone could confirm whether hiring "iPlus" you can see it in HD with this TV. And also if they are in general HD channels already broadcast in DTT-HD.

HDTech's response:

Por desgracia, s?lo puedo hablar sobre los productos en los Estados Unidos. Dicho esto, tambi?n soy consciente de si no "iPlus" es un servicio de cable o sat?lite - de lo que puedo decir, que parece ser un proveedor de servicios Internet. Si se incluye el servicio de Internet y la televisi?n, usted podr?a considerar la compra o alquiler de la caja de cable o sat?lite del proveedor de servicios. A continuaci?n, puede conectar la caja directamente a la televisi?n. Adem?s, ?qu? regi?n est?s preguntando de?

Unfortunately, I can only speak on products in the U.S. That said, I am also not aware if "iPlus" is a cable or satellite service - from what I can tell, it seems to be an internet service provider. If it is internet and includes television service, you might consider purchasing or renting the cable or satellite box from the service provider. Then, you can hook up the box directly to the television.

Also, what region are you inquiring from?

Un mas...

Ah, ya veo a Espa?a en su t?tulo. Me siento tonto por preguntar. Mis disculpas.

Usted puede tratar de visitar este sitio web para obtener m?s informaci?n sobre las especificaciones de televisi?n disponibles en su pa?s. Por desgracia, no puedo responder a su pregunta, pero lo m?s probable es ser capaz de ayudar a m?s y dar m?s detalles. Tambi?n puede ser capaz de ayudarle con una forma alternativa de conectar su televisor y desea obtener los beneficios de su servicio.

Gracias por su apoyo a los productos de Samsung.

Following your advice I have written to and the Samsung Costumer Care Centre have answered me: "Your TV supports HD content through external sources like DVD or Blu-Ray, but the digital channel tuner does not support HD content (MPEG4).
