No problem receiving channel 50 on my UHF STB in Hastings. I am listening as I type this.

RNZ National converted to a TV channel a few months ago.  The audio stream is the normal National Programme, with various graphics being shown on the video stream.  On Wharite, it also moved from the Kordia mux to the new fourth mux (with Apna, Al Jazeera and the new HGTV channel).  So you probably need to rescan the channels and then look for it under the TV channels if WMC splits them between radio and TV.

Yes, the old radio only channel was left running for a few weeks, but without a name so it would not show up on a new scan.  The new TV channel is still numbered as channel 50.
