Hi all,

I had all the Freeview HD channels working last week (via UHF) when I setup our Panasonic 42" G10 plasma.

TV3/C4/TV3+ have now disappeared and I am getting a "No Signal" message from the TV. Has anything changed with the frequencies/broadcasting of these channels?

Thanks

Not around Auckland for users of the Waiatarua transmitter - but you might live somewhere else.

weird, but you are getting TV1+2 in HD still? and prime?
Maybe try a rescan or maybe a plug has come slightly lose, even on the aerial with all this wind :)

My pick would be something happened to your aerial last night with the wind.

Sbiddle - could well be the case but why would this only effect TV3, TV3+ and C4? Strange eh?

If it's the aerial then it's time for the pro's to be called in - there is no way I am going up on the roof (I do love vertigo) especially with this "gentle" breeze we have here today.

Cheers

It's not hard for something to be damagedwhich results in signal loss of a single MUX. It is slightly unusual since the Mediaworks MUX is the middle frequency but it's probably the most logical answer since the transmissions are fine.

What sort of signal strength do you get on the other TVNZ and Kordia MUX's? Where in Wgtn are you? Do you have line of sight coverage to Kaukau?

Me too. I don't use it that often so I'm not sure when it happened.

STOP PRESS: Have you tried unplugging the TV from the wall and starting it up again? Just tried it with mine and it's perfect now.

We have lost 3, 4 and 3+1 too. It just went very pixelated then 'no signal' appeared. I did a rescan and it has not found the channels at all. I winder if this is connected to the rain - we have a uhf reciever. There seems to be a few posts about people losing tv3 and c4. I wonder if all our issues are connected?

Yes they are connected, you all have inadequate antenna installations. Seek advise from an aerial installer.
