andrewcnz: A chap from freeview called me back this afternoon. They were still looking at the issue. He was going to look at this forum,for other people with issues.


Yep - Just talked to the same guy. Really good...

This is from freeview: For those who have problems with the Korida channels on Kopu, please reply to this post so we know how many people are having problems (they will be monitoring this thread). Also please reply if it IS working as expected from Kopu..

They are going to get back to andrewcnz and I with a resolution and one of us will post it here.

(Sorry andrewcnz, speaking on your behalf here?? - hope that is OK)

EDIT: Update on this, Freeview have logged a call with Kordia and they hope to have an answer tomorrow.

A guy from Kordia rang was home at the time went over box settings etc. see how we go... oh yes and he said that there are only one transmitter for each mux. Surly there would be a back up transmitter for each? The analouge transmitters here do(you know when they are on they as don't have nicam gear fitted to them.

The people from Freeview were helpful got the problem sorted. Now they are looking into why no alarms went off at the transmitter site.

Well thanks guys for all this info.  Wish me luck as I am about to open up my media centre and wack in a new DVB-T card for playing.

I'm in Welcome Bay (at the Kopu end of the urban area with a clear line of sight) so hopefully my indoor UHF aerial will work, otherwise it'll be off to Dick Smiths for a real aerial tomorrow.

Should hopefully be fine - from my work place in Grey St I can get 77% signal strength using the pissy little 15cm high "aerial" that came with my usb dvbt tuner! It is litterally just a bit of wire sticking up with a magnetic base.
Not so lucky at home (WBay) though, but do have LOS to Te Aroha so will try that with a 43 element uhf....

$59 internal UHF/VHF combo aerial from DSE and I can see the signal loud and clear from Kopu AND Te Aroha!

Still trying to get either DVBViewer or MediaPortal to spring into life (codec issue I think) as Windows MCE2005 is a non-starter for DVB-T :o(

Right back upstairs for another pop at this

We're up on a North facing hill so have a clear line of sight to both Te Aroha and Kopu from where the TV lives.  After several hours of playing I was able to get full channels & listings from both however the picture was intermittant, I suspect due to a low quality signal.

Today I am going to go and get an external aerial and give that a pop over the weekend.

What graphics card and CPU do you have. It may be that your system can't handle it hence giving you a flashing screen type effect
