Hello folks

A new unlabelled service (1505) is showing up on the new mux. Currently showing CCTV 4 material without an NZ channel logo.

Does anybody know if this is the promised return of Channel 9?

I doubt whethere anyone promised the return of Channel 9.
However, try a scan of 12381 Vertical 3750SR. You should find L-Bird2 if you've got a DVB-S2 receiver.
You could be watching State of Origin tonight!

Ahhh, sorry. Re-reading my post I realise I wasn't clear. I'm referring to DVB-T Freeview HD "Channel 9" (actually channel 29), the Chinese language channel that went off-air last year. Freeview's website has said they'll be "returning soon" for more than 6 months...

I'm aware of the Aussie channel 9 feed. Not really interested in SoO, but thanks for the reminder.

And after all this time off air they still can't get the aspect ratio correct.

The 1.68 Mbps makes it 3rd tier.

Channel 29 - CCTV4 is now live including EPG 

No notice from Freeview at all ! that this would be live today.

Not surprising.

That would account for my TiVo giving me a message last nite that "my aerial lineup had changed"

Is that DVB-S or DVB-T?
