Did a rescan about 7:30, guess what TV3 and C4 are on the 12.456GHz mux as predicted.

So the channel list is complete a week before the official launch?

Would appear so.

Interestingly C4 is 16:9 on the FreeView mux, but still 4:3 on Sky.

TV3 looks great on the dish in 16:9 - so so so much better than the crappy feed that TCL provided

finally my freeview box is complete !

wonder if TVNZ test wide will still be running on wednesday...

most of C4 music videos seem to be letter box 4:3 ahh oh well.


quality is better than sky , both sky and freeview box running componment, but i think my PACE sky box gives a very red picture.

I am using the Technisat  satallite card. TV3 and TV4 are coming up as encrypted after I scanned for new channels. Any suggestions?

I just did a rescan and TV3 is still there.

However it's a 4:3 picture with 16:9 content and is anamorphic. All other widescreen channels are fine.

Just spoke to someone at TV3 engineering, they were not aware of the issue, it would appear that someone unintentionally has flipped the AR flag to 4:3 so STB's set to 4:3LB or 4:3P&S/Centercut will display the full height anamorphic image. Hopefully it will get sorted soon.
