Hi there,

I'm running a MacMini 2Ghz with EyeTV 250 Plus and new professionally installed UHF/VHF aerials (and amplifier) on Wellington's south coast. The aerial masthead amplifier has phantom power in the house...

I get all the analogue channels you could want but no luck with simple or exhaustive DVB-T scanning.
I've checked the setup assistant for PAL and antenna settings...any other advice anyone can offer?

So close, yet so far...
Cheers.

Where is your aerial aimed and where exactly are you located? If it's at one of the various translators (such as Houghton Bay, Happy Valley or Island Bay) none of these carry the DVB-T signal. Your aerial needs to be aimed at Mt Kaukau for this and the possibility exists that you may be in a dead spot and incapable of actually getting a signal.

Do you get Prime TV at all on UHF?

We get Prime well and we're pointed at Kaukau...It must be an Elgato setting. I'll keep researching...
