Hi there,

Sorry about the repeated post, I can't seem to get this in the right forum. Hopefully will have more luck this time.

I am new to posting here, but have used the forum several times in the past with great success so thanks for that, your track record is doing great. Now for a new problem.

I have a Pinnacle PCTV 73e nanostick receiver for Freeview HD on my Dell desktop. I have used it on MediaPortal when I first got it (on Vista) and W7MC when I upgradeed to the release candidate. Working fine in both instances.

I recently reformatted the PC, and went from dual booting to purely using W7. Now when I tell MC to scan for channels it picks up 12 channels, but nothing from TVNZ as far as I can tell (No 1, 2, 6 & 7).

It may be my inexperience, but I cannot find any way to manually tune in the channels. Is there anything dfifferent about the TVNZ stream that would mean my aerial wouldn't pick it up? I have full strength when I look in the signal setup fro the other channels.

Thanks in advance,

What are you using for an aerial?
I have one also, using the supplied aerial but find I could be using it one place and not receive the mediaworks mux but the other 2, yet somewhere else its fine
