Is it likely a signal quality thing? Tried to manually tune to 32/33 for Canwest channels but it picked up nothing.
Will call aerial install company for the building but thought I'd check for anything else first.
It's really up to these people to fix their dodgy installs - somehow I doubt they will and will blame Kordia.
cyril7:It should never have had to have been budgeted for.It's really up to these people to fix their dodgy installs - somehow I doubt they will and will blame Kordia.
In Aus at the moment the guvment is sorting a stategy to fix all these MDU systems that dont support DTT, over there MDUs are a much larger issue as so many people live in apartments, but they are estimating several $100m to sort it all out, something no one ever budgeted on, but its just dawned on them they cannot turn off the analog network till its fixed, well Duh.
garethw:Interestingly I'm not getting great Analog UHF reception through it, but fortunately still have the Sky Digital box so getting to Prime that way.
Right, well another plus for Freeview then!
Suggests you were bang on with the distribution system issue as well - rock solid analogue Prime signal from that but blocked Mediaworks MUX.
cyril7: Ahhh, dont actually agree, the reason why MDUs have issues is the way they are designed. In a single dwelling the whole spectrum is recived, split and maybe some small level of amplification applied, and it all should work.OK. Thanks for the insight, Cyril. Much appreciated.
In a large MDU situation due to the large cable and splitter losses if you were to apply the needed amplification without filtering out only the channels you need before amplification then things go wrong. Also some MDU systems use transmodulators from satellite services to once again control what signals are within the system.
The issue is that the above technique is good if nothing changes, but each time a new channels is added, or complete new service then a truck must roll. Its not poor workmanship, its good techniques applied to a solution that has some negatives, ie low flexibility.
