Is anyone else having trouble getting TV2 in Christchurch this evening? No matter what I do I can't get the channel, I've tried rescanning for it and it finds it but I get no picture or audio. All other channels are working fine.

No TV2 Christchurch, Zinwell HD box. Very strange. As above, all other channels fine.

Yeah, noticed it was gone about an hour or so ago and still not back - just a blank screen. On a HTPC.

Cheers, I should have checked here first. I've spent the last hour messing with MediaPortal's TV server and For The Record trying to figure out what was going :)

They're absolutely hopeless at TVNZ.

Got the following off Freeview early today
---
There was a fault with the terrestrial TV2 broadcast last night in the Wellington region. To fix this fault the Waikato signal was switched over to this region and was switched back at about 10 am this morning. It appears this may have upset some iDTV?s.

So far I am aware of Sony and Panasonic units that after this did not receive any TVNZ channels yet showed full signal strength.

Re-tuning will fix this and our call centre is advising callers with this issue to do this and call their manufacturers helpline if they need help with this.

Zinwell rescan did NOT solve the problem.
