Hi all

Anyone else having terrestrial reception problems in Wellington? Last night all my digital channels died, still dead this morning, get an occasional pixellated image off TV1, TV2, etc. but TV3, C4, Prime are totally dead. Same thing happened a couple of nights ago but fixed itself after a few hours. Wondering if it's a transmission issue or my tuner that's deceased...

Ta much

Which transmitter are you pointing to? I have a mate who's in Waikanae and has lost the Mediaworks MUX as of 8pm last night.

Thanks for fast reply! We're pointing at Fitzherbert. Guess your buddy is pointing at Ngarara?

Well here's hoping it's Fitzherbert that's died, my TV's less than a year old. Anyone else off Fitzherbert with problems? Or what I don't want to hear: anyone off Fitzherbert with NO problems??

Same problem here in Hataitai pointing at Fitzherbert, analog is crystal clear but no digital signal at all (have tested tested using two tuners), using pbpvr I can pick up signals from Kau Kau but they are very weak due to a hill in the way and my aerial being vertical polarity.

Any one got any insight on the problem and when it will be fixed?
