I just turned on Freeview UHF and discovered my channel settings all jumbled up with some mysterious, never before seen channels mixed in, like Rotorua Info, Dunedin, Canterbury, Channel North. These all give no signal when I try them though the EPG info is there. Just curious if anyone knows what this is about. Is it just an anomaly, some EPG screwup or something to do with Freeview +. My box is an old non-approved generic UHF receiver with limited EPG info.

I have had this happen to me several times.

 

 

 

The best I can work out is that there has been a change in the channel listing and that has affected the list of available channels at the transmitter. So what you get is a list of ALL the channels that Freeview carry, not just those you can watch.

 

 

 

A re-tune should fix it
