Does anyone have a full list of moved channels and their transponders? I'm looking for the Soho EPG to add to my HD channel but can't find it anywhere!

gibben: I am in the process of rebuilding my HTPC and have the following S2 transponders (which appears to cover all HD channels off including the new Sky ones).

12268,H,22500,23,DVB-S2
12398,V,11909,23,DVB-S2
12295,H,22500,23,DVB-S2
12331,H,22500,23,DVB-S2
12358,H,22500,23,DVB-S2

I am just in the process of scanning all transponders (S and S2) and hopefully will find the EPG listings for all.

Will post up my results.


What LNB settings do you use to get channels on the 12398 transponder?  I don't get any channels on that transponder.  Also, what channels do you receive on it?

 

Benoire and CYaBro, this is my full list of working transponders:
1=12268,H,22500,23,S2
2=12295,H,22500,34,S2
3=12331,H,22500,23,S2
4=12358,H,22500,23,S2
5=12394,H,22500,34
6=12421,H,22500,34
7=12456,H,22500,34
8=12483,H,22500,34
9=12519,H,22500,34
10=12546,H,22500,34
11=12581,H,22500,34
12=12608,H,22500,34
13=12644,H,22500,34
14=12671,H,22500,34
15=12707,H,22500,34
16=12734,H,22500,34

 

I don't think you can upload files (??) otherwise I'd upload a text file with all the transponders' channels.  But it looks like they're still transmitting the SD Soho channel on 12295, along side a bunch of HD Sports channels (SoHo HD is on 12268).  But I also found SD SoHo on 12644...that's probably the more likely transponder to use?  Kidzone24 I've got on 12734, along with Olympic News and Sky Sport 4 & 5.  Still can't find Sky Sports 9-11 SD...not sure where they're hidden.  Everything else appears to be there.

Actually, it looks like Sky Sport 9-11 are HD only (wiki SkyNZ).  Not sure what I'll do about EPG for those channels...

That would be correct, they are HD only as a bonus for MySky subscribers. I figured I would just go without the EPG on those for the duration. Wasn't really worth the trouble for a temporary service.

And you were right.  I spent all of yesterday trying to configure EPG Collector to get the EPG data for the extra HD channels...and failed.  Lame.  What actually goes on with the Sky HD epg?

There is OpenTV data for Sky Sport 1-8 and Sky Sport 1HD - 11HD from EPG Collector.

So I should be using OpenTV for them?  I didn't know whether I should use OpenTV or EIT.  Whats the difference?

Also, I've run EPG Collector (EIT) for those channels.  When I try and select the EPGCollector listing for thsoe channels in WMC, WMC crashes....?

Does the OpenTV option pick up the full 7 day EPG for all channels including the HD ones?

Prime HD is looking good and I can confirm that you don't need any HD Ticket to receive it. As with Sky's other HD channels, there isn't any EPG provided, only current and next programmes. However, it's a simple matter to add a timed recording matching the same programme on the SD channel.

I just tried collecting Sky EIT and it looks like they are only broadcasting now/next for the HD channels so if you want the full 7 days you need to collect OpenTV.

Normally there is little or no difference between them. The program categories will be different but that's all.

Also OpenTV collections in EPG Collector are normally a little quicker than EIT.

That kind of makes sense, because it looked like I was only getting now/next data.  I'll try doing an OpenTV scan.

Thanks heaps though, thats helpful!

Worked!  Have full EPG now :)

Does anyone know why loading in some channels via EPG Collector seems to remove the program type info (colours in WMC guide) from all the channels that receive their EPG using an alternative method?  Not a big deal, just a bit odd.

I've left most of the channels receiving EPG via DVBLink TVSource.  And when TVSource has done its thing, all the channels have appropriate program colouration.  But after I run EPG Collector, all those channels lose their colours, and only the 3 new channels have coloured guide.

Yes that is odd.

How have you configured the EPG Collector output (xmltv/import to WMC etc)?
