Is there a prize for being the first to scan in to watch the infomercials I don't know about?

Hooray it's working well. Tuned in easily via a win7 media centre. I assume it is only in SD (terrestial) but streets ahead of the analogue signal. Now my tuners are running exclusively digital.

Great win for freeview after conceeding TVNZ6 and 7

I believe it's on 12456, if I'm thinking of the right number (it's been a while!)

ahmad: Anyone know what MUX Prime is on for UHF?

It depends which transmitter you're using.  You're in Dunedin, right?  So it will be on 730, 666 is TV Works.
