Just running a loop of Kordia advert + 2 short cartoons. Panasonic tv shows 'no video' for a while, then it shows up. Hard to believe it, but my hardly ever used Extra Terrestrial box shows it ok, though the sound stutters. Info says it's 1080i and MPEG (unknown) audio.

Could be the return of the old "HD Demo" channel they used to run

No sign of it here in the Manawatu; not even just in the SI.
Are you able to figure out which frequency it is on?

I saw this last night, no issues with Tivo or LG 4K TV

My TV reports it as 1080/24 ( cant remember if it says 1080P or 1080I )

My wife made the comment that the picture looks really good.

Auckland  - Aerial pointing to Waitarua

Caminandes is the cartoon they are playing.
http://www.caminandes.com/


Channel 200 from the sky tower.
Its one of those Creative Commons cartoons and full HD and really vivid.
Looks a bit like the Big Buck Bunny cartoon in it sharpness.

Hi Guys,
I have spoken to Freeview to clarify what the story is here, their response below:

 

Kordia switched on a multiplex independent of Freeview in Waiatarua and Remuera on Monday, so looks like viewers can access that on channel 200.

 

 

 

As it's a transmission that's independent of Freeview, we don't have control over it.

 

 

 

We are currently investigating a report of this new multiplex having an effect on SHARP TVs.  There're no other known effects at this stage.

Hmm.. isn't this part of an unused NZ multiplex block?
I know at the moment it's Auckland only, but I seem to recall the band plan consisting of a number of nationwide blocks.

Apsattv: I had report that it is DVB T2 format



Standard DVB-T on 522MHz (Ch 27)

 

Currently a single Channel with a single Audio + Video PID.

- SID = 7000
- APID = 301
- VPID = 300

I haven't tried it out on a TV yet, I'm scanning via a USB tuner.

The Multiplex isn't advertising any of the Freeview multiplexes in its NIT Table, just the frequencies for Waiatarua (522MHz) and Remuera (514MHz)

Sounds like they are testing the new Kordia mux. They will need to advertise the other Freeview frequencies eventually to meet thier licence conditions when fully on air.
