Freeview has been with us for quite some time now.All the broadcasters should be very familiar with the system and how to load up the EPG etc. It all should be business as usual.So if this is true,…Continue
"Wouldn't it be great if Sky could broadcast the Freeview HD channels unencrypted so those with HD capable receivers could view them.
But as far as I know the Sky boxes are incapable of decoding unencrypted content so that is why they have to…"
"Oh yes, I am familiar with dinosaurs.
However it is 2016! Receiving TV should be easy and automagical with all the new smart electronics our world is filled with. Well, not so much! Hence these and many other Forums. :-( (Sad face)
If you could find out the model number of the Sharp TV, you could Google up a copy of its manual.
There will be a way to initiate a 'Blind Scan' that will make the TV do a scan of all available frequencies and find all the channels…"
I am guessing that your Sharp TV has a digital UHF tuner??? (Connected to a TV aerial)
If this is the case you should not have to do anything as Prime is not changing its frequencies/transponders for UHF terrestrial broadcasting. This change…"
"Fiona, it sounds like your USB stick may not be formatted as FAT32.
Plug it into you PC. Go to 'My Computer' Or 'This PC' (depending on your windows version) and right click on the icon for your USB drive and click…"
I reckon you need to get that Firmware to install as that will more than likely fix your satellite scanning problem.
You don't say if the S7090 displayed any messages as to why the firmware did not load but here are a couple of things…"
I will put my DishTV technical hat on (No, I don't work for them) and say, make sure that your machine is at the current firmware level (1.6f). If not, download it from dishtv.co.nz and apply it.
I just tried the factory reset on my…"
"I thought I would add my experience on my S7090.
Today the following message was displayed:- Some Frequencies are added in the Transmission. Press OK to upload now. Press EXIT to update later.
I pressed OK to let the unit do its thing. The Satellite…"
It is good to know that you Freeview dudes are on to it.
You, or others on the forum, may be able to clarify something else for me.
Freeview NZ has standardised on the MHEG system? As far as I am aware this provides us with a consistent…"
"This is very interesting.
No mention of changes on the Prime TV web site.
But even more interestingly, I could find nothing about these frequency changes on the FreeviewNZ web site.
Come on Freeview, are you guys asleep at the wheel?
I know we…"
"At the end of the day all the problems stem from one thing. That is the broadcasters trying to lock the viewers in to having to suffer through the adverts.
And of course you can understand where they are coming from as they need us to watch adverts…"
"I have seen this sort of thing happen too. (Not on Coro Street. Not a fan sorry.) It happens on some shows but not others.
It never happens when booking recordings on channels with a +1 (i.e. A half hour program doesn't record once then again…"
"That is very weird Jamie.
The DishTV guys should be able to help you with this but I would suggest that you check that your T2200 has the latest firmware installed.
I have a DishTV S7090 (Satellite) and this certainly does not exhibit this…"
