Comparison of Systems
Does anyone have a top-level comparison of the various systems. A table may serve, follones by more detailed explanation of the differences ... followed perhaps on a historical perspective on the behind-the-scenes machinations. There was an idea once upon a time that there would be a universal (global) HDTV standard ... does anyone have a good handle of how this patchwork quilt emerged from the good intent to agree on a global HDTV system?Enquire (talk) 14:39, 6 March 2008 (UTC)
- There is a series of recorded video tests done in Peru available on Youtube. In short, ISDB-T is the only one that works flawlessly in a moving car. Indoors, ISDB-T is the only one that works flawlessly when various appliances (Hair dryer, Washing machine) are turned on / off. This matches Brazilian papers about similar tests done in 2000.

DVB-T in Germany
"now available to 100% of the population" Yes 100% of all german television towers send DVB-T signals.
But DVB-T has a shorter range than terresrial analog tv. Most germans can use DVB-T but in some regions the reception isn't strong enougth. Even in some parts of berlin. --18.104.22.168 (talk) 20:48, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Why was Brazil taken off from "Analogue to digital transition by country" section?

Section on Republic of Ireland
This section is very poorly written, and is very confusing to understand. Aside from numerous spelling and grammatical mistakes, the style and composure of the section makes it very difficult and hard to read. I find myself getting lost mid paragaph. Dylan (talk) 22:05, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Cuba can be added to list of "not intending to switch"
On the map, North Korea is shown in blue as not intending to switch to digital. We can also include Cuba as well. Switching their population of 10+ million over to digital would be almost impossible. There are no electronics companies even established in Cuba - everything is brought into the country on the grey market. Therefore there is no way for the government to roll out digital TV in people's homes without the private sector (STB manufacturers) involved. Davez621 (talk) 00:53, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
South Africa has not switched over. The pic is incorrect. Still probably 99% analog. Who did the pic, do they know what they are talking about??? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:51, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
