Topic # 61275 13-May-2010 09:55 Send private message

Used TiVo last evening, was advised a lineup change had occurred.
It seems some, but not all, channels are now duplicated. (not for normal use, but in the Channels settings page).
From memory it was PRIME, Maori, Parliament, C33, China, and the radio stations, are now all duplicated in my Settings > Channels > Channel list display.
One of each pair is 666 MHz ( is MHz right?) and the other is 626 MHz.
All the duplicated channels have one on 666 and one on 626.
Both channels have same description, only one of each pair can be enabled at a time.

Did anyone else get this? and/or know what this means?

Cheers,
Joseph.

As at 9:30 last night mine had not changed (no notification anyway).  I will check when I get home tonight.

What part of the country are you in?

And as a side issue do you ever have any trouble with the Live tv button on your glo remote?  Got mine yesterday and found that sometimes instead of swapping the tuner it would bring up the guide.

Where do you live?  Kordia mux is broadcast on 666 from Waiatarua, and also 626 around Auckland for infill.  Those are usually vertical polarity (compared to horizontal for Waiatarua) except for Pinehill.  You must be picking one of those up.

West Auckland, looks like bazzer has the answer.
and no, I've not had any problems with Glo remote (touch wood). The only time anything odd happens is when batteries are getting low, it often takes several presses to make it respond. 

Cheers,
Joseph.

Hi bazzer, thanks, I think you may have hit the nail on the head.
I'm in Titirangi, so Waiatarua is pretty close, line of sight.
My signal strength has always been fine from waiatarua, I'll double check then probably delete the 626 channels it has added.

Cheers,
Joseph.

Don't know why it would suddenly add the 626 mux though. Maybe somethng else funny is going on? Aren't the other transmitters in the opposite direction from you? I'd just ignore those other frequencies and stick with 666 if it works for you.
