Cross Posting from Sky forum.

Hi
I am using and RF Modulator (set to Channel 38) with SkyHD to send the sky signal to my televisions via coax cable. Not sure if it is  a coincidence but since the Freeview frequency changes it is no longer working.  Is this just coincidence or could the change have affected this?
Cheers
Richard

The local RF modulator is likely to be more powerful than the off air Freeview but depending on the quality of the modulator and how clean its output is, ut may not affect it. In Wellington, the highest channel Freeview is now on, is Ch37 (from Baxter´s knob, Fitzherbert & Haywards).

Hi, yep move it down to 26 or 27, its a common complaint since the move as the FreeView muxs have moved into that channel space.

All fixed thanks to Cyril.   A simple case of moving the channel down to 26 or 27, its a common complaint since the move as the FreeView muxs have moved into that channel space.
