To go a little further with this, the channels I have trouble with are 40 to 46 as stated. I now have 2 aerials set up. one is horizontal for Waitarua and all is good there. The other is vertical and pointed at the sky tower. Both Waitarua and Sky Tower are line-of-sight so should get great reception. I have 4 tv's as such. 2 are Set top boxes and get the channels 40 to 46. No problem now with pixelating. One of the other TVs is a Veon and the other a Konka. Neither of these will pick up 40 to 46. By 40 to 46 I mean:- 40 = SCTV 41 = V1 42 = V2 43 = K-POP 44 = V4 45 = V5 46 = V6
It seems to me that the el cheapo Veon & Konka just cannot be tuned to whatever frequency is required for these 40 to 46 channels. Has anyone had problems with these particular brands being limited in some way??
Please re-read my earlier post to see how I solved it by making the TV believe it was located in Spain. (If set up to NZ, it would only look for "freeview" channels, and ignored the other DVB-T channels (IE was ignoring 40-46 even though I have heaps of signal from Sky Tower).
Tried playing with tuning using different countries. The Konka only has 4 choices. NZ, Israel, Iran, Australia, Russia & UAE. None of then found the Korean channels as far as I could see and certainly the channels were mixed as expected. The Veon had lots more choices including Spain & Other. I couldn't find the Korean channels after trying Spain & Other and have now tuned back to NZ. More playing later. What is it that Freeview don't Authenticate the channels and download the relevant Info?
