Do you think it's worth changing DVB-T2 tuner with the one from my used mainboard (DVB-T) ?

I know it works with T2 tuner, but channels numbers aren't proper.

If you feel like having skill, why not, I remember some reports of tuner change on forum, so it's doable. You'd have to check if it was really SEC_T (if there is any choice between other non-T2 in SM).

OK, I have a soldering station and some skills, but no desoldering braid, so it maybe be painly.

I will ask the owner of the tv if he wants me to do it, or he will have to reorder all channels manually after a search.

i prefer a vacuum pen for desoldering (sry, i only know the german name for this)

do they even broadcast dvb-t where you live?
here they stopped broadcasting dvb-t a while ago and only t2 is available

Obviously France, originally intended in 2015 but last news say not before 2023 now, so still worth a tuner change :D

Yeah France.
It's still DVB-T and TV may be broken before T2 comes lol.
Moreover T2 will probably be in HEVC, which is not supported by this TV.

I did not change the tuner, my friend renamed channels after I have him TV back.
I still keep the broken board if he wants to change.
