Someone was once kind enough to send me a plist file that he had edited to make channel 7 (from Australia) work on EyeTV. THat channel has long since gone but now SBS seems to be available. EyeTV wont find it and I'm guessing it's the hidden PID problem.
I'm afraid I've no idea how to edit the file so is there anyone out there who uses EyeTV and has done this or who would do it and be kind enough to send me a copy?

Well apparently they're not hidden.
So does anyone have EyeTV and get SBS?

if by Channel 7, you mean 7 Central on Optus C1, then it probably won't work, as it's encrypted.

But SBS should work. Optus D1 12648V 12600. But it won't work if any other box in the house has Freeview or Sky stuff on. Horizontal polarity over rides vertical

Channel 7 was unencrypted for a few weeks maybe 18 months ago. That was what I was referring to there.
So then could the problem be that I live in an apartment block that shares one dish?
