Hi,

over @ ForTheRecord (Mediaportal TV Server alternative/option) they are adding NIT scanning into their next release of 4TR

Im not sure how to answer their questions correctly, but im sure someone here does.

See below the question they posted.


To improve NIT scanning, can you post the frequencies to scan for your provider?

For example (and please do correct me if I'm mistaken):

TV Vlaanderen DVB-S

Astra, 19.2E
12.722H
FEC 5/6
SR 22000

and

Astra, 23.5E
12.129V
FEC 5/6 
SR 27500 
DVB-S2, QPSK

As I said, if I'm not mistaken, scanning both these frequencies will give you the NIT tables for TV Vlaanderen.

EDIT: thinking out loud I'd say we could create an online NIT file (probably using an XML format) which could be downloaded by Argus before a scan. That way you (the user) could help keep this file/database up to date for all For The Record users.

Hi

For Freeview satellite I think both transponders carry NIT.

Optus D1, 160E
12456H
FEC 3/4
SR 22500

For Sky, I think the "home" transponder (or at least the one that carries the EPG) is:

Optus D1, 160E
12519H
FEC 3/4
SR 22500

For DVB-T they're possibly going to have trouble because Freeview intentionally set the frequencies in the NIT to 0. The spec is available here for them to read:

See section 4 page 14.

thanks dude, appreciate all the work you do for MP too.

FYI mm,  you may be interested that the next version of MP-TVSeries will include a fix that stops it scanning/running an import during livetv/recording playback which can cause a slight stutter in live tv and recordings playback on MP.
