Firstly sorry for cross posting as I don't know if this is an Igloo or Freeview change in Southland. Anyone in this area still receive Al Jazzera?

Cheers,
Gavin.

After re-tuning I too have lost Al Jazerra. Bit weird. This was on my freeview tv.

I am in Wellington, I did the retune on all devices and Al Jazeera is on all devices. The only hiccup was TiVo I had to do the tune twice. But Igloo and inbuilt tuners ok

It seems TV3 is still bad today. Getting a lot of visual errors this afternoon. Been up on the roof to check the antenna, it's definately changes at Forest Hill going on, or in town before they feed it out to Forest Hill.

Yeah they still seem to playing with things. Al Jazeera is back.. All I need is EPG EIT data back or it renders my PlayTV useless :/

For what it's worth, Al Jazeera is still working in Whakatane (Te Aroha transmitter) although it's moved from 562 to 530 MHz. EIT now/next data is present.

It also seems to be effecting other set top boxes as well as I was over at the mother in laws tonight and it taking 20+ seconds to change channels. I'm guessing it's also looking for the EIT data and not finding it and then finally giving up.
