walt12: Understood. It has been over a week since I've been able to tune anything off the TVNZ mux. Is it fair to say that mux has been on and off in the last week, more so than say the Mediaworks mux? Just trying to establish whether I have some problem with tunning that mux ...


MediaWorks mux has been reasonably static although there were some changes today.

Kordia and TVNZ muxes have been changing like crazy this week.

At the moment they aren't carrying any NIT or SDT tables so most scanners won't pick up the channels.

TVNZ currently have 5 active channels, but no names are loading - Audio is now AAC

Kordia have 7 active channels but again no names - Audio is still MP2.

Ok, latest.

Media works:
C4 - Live actual channel - ~5.5mbps - Audio down - changing from 24 - 32 - 44.1kHz 384 & 384kbps (really screwed up) can hear glitches, thats all.
TV3 - 1080i loops - ~10-11mbps - Audio down - Can hear audio glitches

Kordia:
TVNZ 6 - live actual channel - AAC Audio, can't hear it
TV2 - live actual channel " "
Parliament TV - live actual channel - politicians partying it up until feb 12th
Maori TV - live actual channel - 4:3 but flags say its 16:9

The rest is a real pick and mix, tvnz sports extra is up twice, there are channels appearing and reappearning at random. Loops changing etc. It's quite hard to map it all out.

720p sample up and running! It's at the 538Mhz mux. I'm recording a sample now. Look at the very high bitrate.

Nice.. Thanks for that. The multiplexes have gotten their names back now. I'll try and pull some 720p samples myself.

I've uploaded a 10 second 720p sample to http://mythtv.co.nz/mythtv/images/tv2.ts

They appear to be showing Batman Returns in a loop at present I think.

This must still be the case because GB PVR picks up nothing on the TVNZ mux. Channel names are back on Kordia, Mediaworks is the same, loops with no audio.

Also - that CSI 720p clip looks superb on my Plasma.

What do you need to play the.ts files? When I run them in Media Player it plays audio but no video and shows the length as 1 second (Although the sound keeps going past this time)

VLC, Power Dvd. Media player will work with some yummy h.264 codecs installed.
