Is it possible to watch/record non-Freeview DVB-T channels on the TiVo?
We have a few extra digital channels in Nelson (from MainlandTV) with some half-decent programs on them. My TiVo does locate the channels when it scans and they do appear in the list of channels as 350, 351 etc. but when you view any of them it's just a blank screen.
The two radio channels from MainlandTV do work and can be recorded fine on the TiVo.
All the TV channels can be tuned into and watched using the TVs tuner and an EyeTV tuner too.
Does anyone know the missing link here? It seems odd the channels are located OK, and that the two radio ones work fine. Is it likely MainlandTV are using a different compression or something the Tivo doesn't understand but the TV does? Or will the TiVo only show Freeview video channels?
I had a brief email from both TiVo and MainlandTV after enquiring with them - TiVo knew nothing and Mainland suggest it should work as it's just like any other digital TV channel.
