It's great that SKY and Freeview can now play nicely together on the same dish. Has anyone worked out whether SKY are using the Freeview feeds for TV1,2,3,C4 or doubling up and using more bandwidth on their own MUXs? Cyril are you there?
I noticed that the above channels were only down for a short time after the 1am changeover, and it appeared the EPG info was down for longer - not sure how long.

Tivo upgrades to operate with the new OzTivo EPG, support and service. Over 300 performed here so far. See:

if nobody answers, i'll do a rescan when i get home to see.  I was wondering the same thing this morning.

Agreed about Freeview now being fully functional, means I can now record more than TV One and TV2

Doing a channel scan shows that Sky is still broadcasting their versions of TV 1 and TV 2 at present.

Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

Yep they still have their own there, however thats not to say that subs could be pointed at the freeview ones and their own ones stay as a backup till the dust settles. But I doubt much will happen for a few days, anyway the guys that press all the important buttons are probably tucked up in bed after last nights late shift.
