Ive had an outage since approximately Monday evening with no broadcasts detectable on the Zinwell decoder except for a brief receipt of TV3/C4 only on Wenesday. I am not sure if this is due to storm damage at the transmitter, a failed receiver or aerial damage due to the storm (or aerial amplifier related failure) or some side effect of a recent over the air software upgrade to the Zinwell (I think this was a few days earier and appeared to be fine as all channels rescanned okay). This is a new aerial.

If someone can confirm that there is a relaible signal being broadcast in this area then I can start to eliminate the others. Tx.

I can confirm that the storm took the power supply out at Ngarara (Waikane TX) and it has no standby generator, dont know when its expected back on. It effects TV1,2 Maori TV Analog, Sky UHF, and DTT services, TV3 and Prime are from Forest heights and still going.
