6 channels have lit up on the new multipex off Waiatarua, but only one of them has audio/video PIDS.

No channel numbers mapped yet.

What's a modulator? Have I got one? do I need one? Will my wife let me buy one?

PS that post did make you sound a bit like a robot.

A thing (technical term) that turns stuff (another technical term) into RF. You probably don't have one. You probably don't need one. And you probably aren't allowed one.

Yep.. I set up a modulator on ch35 for a friend.. they're looking at Pinehill, so it might still be ok.
I went with ch35 because it was listed as empty on here: http://www.qsl.net/zl1vfo/aktvchannels.htm

I think mine was on 33 and a bit because it's an aussie one so the numbers mean nothing.

"Test 6" now showing up in Whakatane too (Te Aroha transmitter) on channel 28/530 MHz. Wasn't there a couple of days ago. Interestingly, EyeTV tags it as Kordia even though SMART says World TV.

Sommet Sports did post this on their twitter last year - maybe they are getting a mux to add more channels??

Channel 800 "Test 6" has appeared (not sure when) on our Panasonic TV without us doing anything. Test pattern with the pong-like thing. Signal is from Sugarloaf.

Similar-ish vertical coloured bars, but with a black horizontal line through the middle with a small square going back and forth along it beeping at each end.

No, as that's a 1080i pattern. Kordia and co still exist in a 576i world. Sommet exist in D1-CIF sub 1 Mbps world so I wouldn't want to see them have their own mux.




Spark Max Fibre using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+, CRS125-24G-1S, UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1st gen, iPad Air 4th gen, iPhone 13, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.
