Has anybody else in Canterbury started getting bad pixilation over the weekend? According to my Panasonic  TV and MagicTV I'm still getting good signal strength but the quality is very low.

All muxs from Sugarloaf appear to be good. 99.99% chance that issue is with your antenna.

Cheers Josh. Had bit of a play this afternoon and it appears to be the MagicTV 3600 that's causing the issue. When it's taken out of the loop I pretty much get 100% of both signal quality and strength.

Sorry to "hijack" but can anyone help me confirm my TvHeadend MUXes are correct for sugarloaf?

Frequencies: 562MHz, 578MHz, 594MHz

Bandwidth: 8MHz
Constellation: QAM/64
Transmission Mode: 8k
Guard Interval: 1/16
Hierarchy: NONE
FEC High: 3/4
FEC Low: NONE
PLP ID: -1


They seem to work but my signal is pretty bad - think it's antenna or cheap USB tuner.

Looks good, there's also a 2nd Kordia Mux on 530MHz.

Some USB tuners have less than brilliant sensitivity, so you need to ensure your antenna is 100%.

Try juggling round your aerial coax cables.  I've had a similar issue before with signal locking up and pixelating which was the coax cable that had just got old and a little corroded.  The cable itself was ancient to start with so in hindsight not unexpected.  Replaced cable and has never skipped a beat since... three years later!
