A feature of the World Vision T64 console
The World Vision T64 TV receiver is very versatile. Designed for both digital terrestrial reception (DVB-T / T2 standard) and cable TV broadcasting (DVB-C). Supports all the necessary options for comfortable TV viewing:
- electronic TV guide (EPG);
- timer to automatically start recording TV broadcast;
- timeShift to pause or rewind programs;
- subtitles with a choice of language;
- parental control, etc.
In addition, the World Vision T64 digital receiver is used as a media center. With its help, favorite films, photos, recordings of TV broadcast, etc., are displayed on the TV screen from external media or hard drives.
World Vision T64 line
The World Vision T64 line is presented in three models – T64M, T64D and T64LAN. Each receiver certainly has its own peculiarity, although their technical data is almost identical. So, World Vision Т64М does not have a display that displays the time and serial number of the switched on channel. In Moscow, the price range for this model varies from 1190 to 1300 rubles. The World Vision T64D TV tuner differs from the previous model only in the presence of that display itself. Its price is 1290 rubles. The World Vision T64LAN receiver has a connector for a network cable (patch cord). After connecting this model to the Internet, YouTube, a free version of the online cinema Megogo, IPTV, RSS news, weather forecasts, etc. become available. The cost of the model is 1499 rubles.
The body of the World Vision T64 is quite compact. Its dimensions are 13 cm * 6.5 cm * 3 cm. Made of high quality black plastic.
It has ventilation holes on four sides, so that the receiver practically does not heat up.
Cooling the receiver [/ caption] On the front side on the left side there are four functional buttons: on / off (POWER), “OK” – for displaying the channel list, as well as buttons for adjusting the volume level and switching channels. On models T64D and T64LAN in the central part of the front panel there is an LED display with 3 brightness modes. The exact time, TV channel number, indicator of connection to the mains, signal presence are displayed here. All available connectors are concentrated on the back side. An information sticker is glued to the bottom of the case. There are also four plastic tabs that provide stability to the TV tuner. Depending on the model of the TV receiver, the connectors for connection are slightly different. Therefore, we will consider each case.
World Vision T64M and T64D Ports
The connectors on the TV tuners World Vision Т64М and T-are identical, so we combine them into a single group. So, on the rear panel of the cases of these models are located (we list the inputs from right to left):
- RF port – used to connect an antenna or cable for cable TV.
- HDMI – for connecting to a TV using an HDMI cable (will provide the highest quality images and audio).
- USB0 (2 connectors) – for connecting external media or Wi-Fi adapter.
- AV is an alternative way to connect to TV using an RCA cable.
- DC-5V – Connect the supplied external power supply here.
Note! The connectors located on the set-top boxes allow you to connect to any TV. An adapter is required to connect to an older TV with SCART input.
World Vision T64LAN ports
The World Vision T64LAN set-top box has the following connectors: RF, HDMI, USB 2.0 (1 connector), LAN, AV, DC-5V. As you can see, the only difference is that this model has a LAN instead of the second USB input. However, according to user reviews, one port for external flash drives is quite enough.

Connecting the box and configuring the World Vision T-64
If the TV has a free HDMI connector, then the World Vision T-64 receiver is connected to it. To do this, use an HDMI wire, which is inserted into the corresponding input on the set-top box. The set-top box is connected to a TV with an AV connector using a RAC wire. For older models with a SCART connector, an AV cable is also suitable, but with an adapter.
First time setup
After connecting all the wires, turn on the prefix. We are waiting for the download to finish, which will be marked by the appearance on the screen of the “Installation Guide” dialog box. Here we select the digital TV standard and basic presets.
Note! In this section, the item “5V Antenna Power” is provided for activating the power supply to the antenna amplifier. If the active antenna comes without an amplifier or has its own power adapter, then this function will be disabled by default.
Next, the item “LCN Auto Numbering” will be displayed, which is responsible for the sorting type of connected channels. It is active by default. Upon completion of work with presets, we proceed to the search for channels, if necessary, set the parameters for parental control, etc.
Internet connection setup
All World Vision T64 line-ups are internet-connected. To establish a wired connection to the T64LAN model, the Internet cable is connected directly through the LAN port. For T64D and T64M models, you will need to purchase a USB to LAN card separately. To connect wirelessly, you need a Wi-Fi adapter, which is also purchased separately. Internet connection settings are set in “Menu” → “System” → “Network settings”. Next, you will need to specify the “Type of network” If we are talking about a wired connection, select “Wired network” accordingly. After that, the Internet connection should be established. If we are dealing with wireless Internet, select “Wi-Fi network”. Go to the item “Adapter settings” → “OK”. The search for access points will start. In the list that appears, select your own and click “OK”. If the network is protected, enter the password.In the next window, check the box next to the “Auto-connect” function, click “Connect”.
