Can someone please help:

I accidentally wiped all my channels on my Strong 4663. I have managed to manually load the Free view channels, however I have lost the SBS channels and am unsure how to load them. I need:

Video PID
Audio PID

Can anyone help?

Also, since deleting my channels, with the new channels I have tuned, I am no longer getting the EPG information. Any ideas why that one might not be working now?

It is SBS Tasmania you want.

If you are missing the EPG, maybe you tuned into the Sky TVNZ feed?

This will give you most of the info you requested. Can't find the PCR PID...

Frequency = 12648 MHz
Polarity = V (vertical)
Symbol Rate = 12600

VPID = 0161
APID = 0083
PCR PID = 0161

VPID = 0162
APID = 0083
PCR PID = 0162]

There aren't. It is just that the Sky SD versions of TV One and TV 2 on 12671H are free-to-air. If you have tried to get the EPG from 12671H then you will fail. You need to get it from 12456H (or 12483H???)...
