User manual for 8455DVB needed

  1. Hi All,

    English speaker here (sorry).

    Does anyone have the user manual (or link) for the 8455DVB?

  2. You can find it here.

    NOTE: not all features are supported by the Ziggo released firmware. And it has quite a small harddisk.
    NOTE2: Humax is expected to release a PVR in Q1-2009. (Which will probably have a 320G HD).
  3. Thanks for the user manual link.

    Does anyone use this Cisco box via component outputs? Do I assume correctly that the output via component is 576P?

    Is this box available now?

    Where can I purchase this box?

    Thanks again for the assistance it is greatly appreciated,

    The component HD output of that Cisco 8455 box is deliberately crippled to standard PAL resolutions.
    One of the Ziggo people on this forum assured the analog component output of the Cisco box will never output a HD signal. :x
  5. Never tried to connect it via component, so can't say if it is restricted to 576P. Thought it was, but really am not sure (EDIT: Someone beat me to it above, apparently it is indeed restricted).

    The box is only available in some parts of the Ziggo network, that is the former Casema area (mainly The Hague, Utrecht and surroundings). You live in Venlo, which is a former @Home area, so in your area the box formally is not available yet.

    You can buy it however at some Mediamarkt stores, I know they were sold at Mediamarkt in Utrecht. Problem is that you can not yet update firmware in former @Home areas, which is annoying because you miss important fixes and features without that update.

    It costs 428 euros.

    Also please note that several users (including me) still report important bugs in the EPG and PVR part of the decoder and issues with the HDMI handshake. So I am not sure if you should already want to buy this.

    My advice: Wait until they worked out the major issues in the firmware and the box is officially supported in your area. Also as said, from mid next year you can probably choose for another HD PVR as well.
  6. Thanks for the information Xahmol.

    Can anyone confirm if component out is 576i or 576p?

    This is of major importance to me, because my TV will only sync with 576p not 576i.
