Anybody else noticed the Freeview EPG wasn't available on the TVNZ MUX tonight (6pm) from Waiatarua? Wouldn't work on my Sony TV or Panasonic Recorder. Was working OK on the TV3 MUX though.Continue

"Not much info to work with there. I presume you have plugged in a Sat Dish Antenna? If so, check you have the correct LNB Frequ in the setup."

"Sri. Thought you meant pull on the cable but I guess you meant unplug it? Weird. Sounds like could be interference. Is the quality constant or does it drop when 'no service' appears?"

"You need to connect to the UHF tuner as well.  Either use a splitter at the TV to connect both sockets to one of the 8 outputs or use two of the 8 outputs (preferred), one to Sat and one to UHF."

Oops sorry.

I couldn't do an autotune on the T2200 cos I had no service! Anyway I just whizzed out and bought an HDMI lead and it worked. The guy at Noel Leeming told me none of the FreeviewPlus-approved recorders come with HDMI cables, which is a bit rich when they sell for $400 upwards. Thanks for your help.

Thanks Biggles. So why does the Aerial Box come with AV leads and no HDMI cable?



FIXED: EPG Issue-Timaru: Missing EPG info and in turn can not record. (Last updated: 30 NOV).
