I installed NextPVR on Windows 10 and did a scan. Whilst it picked up most channels it did not pick up Prime (NZ).

 

I don't know (as yet) how to add a new channel, but I cannot find out from googling what the frequency is for Prime.

 

Anybody help me out?

You have to add the transponder to nextpvr.  I modify the file in users/public/nextpvr/tuners

 

Do a google search for not picking up PrimeTV Nextpvr and you will find instructions.

I did not find the instructions.

 

So, I found a colleague at work who used NextPVR, who lives in Auckland and points to Waitatarua.

 

His .ini is exactly the same as mine and he gets Prime:

 

C:\Users\Public\NPVR\Tuning\DVB-T\New Zealand - Auckland (Waiatarua).ini

 

My .ini shows ...

 

[TERTYPE]
1=New Zealand
2=Auckland (Waiatarua)

 

[DVB]
0=3
1=1,538000,0,0,8
2=2,570000,0,0,8
3=3,666000,0,0,8

 

What I am missing are the channels on the 666000 Frequency.

Oh okay. I just assumed you were trying DVB-S as that's the only one I knew that had problems. I see it is terrestrial you are having problems with. Hopefully someone else can help there.

Do you get any channels on that MUX? If not your issue is almost certainly aerial/signal related.

Decided to use All Regions. It found Prime on 613MHz, Channel 613!!!

 

I want 10 (I think).

 

PS I have a NZ Tivo and Prime has been OK for years. As far as I know, I don't have any problems with an aerial/signal.

That .ini seems to be an old setup - there are now four DVB-T muxes, and the channels have been redistributed a bit between the third mux and the new fourth one.   So Prime may be on the fourth mux now.
