Our new Samsung HDTV has a built in digital receiver and is picking up most Freeview terrestrial channels each time we do a scan, minus One, 2, TVNZ 6 & 7. 
The reception is fine on the channels we pick up with no pixelation. 
Any ideas why we can't get the above channels?

I'm not sure which Wellington transmitter the UHF aerial is aimed at but we're located in the CBD and this is an apartment building, so no access to the aerial. We are getting One and 2 fine on analogue.

Hi, its a common problem that MATV systems as used in apartment buildings have filters to only pass channels that they want, and as these are often setup pre digital DTT then they dont pass the DTT service.

Have your body corp get their TV contractor in to check the system out, or PM me, I do work in Wellington. Alternatively get your self a indoor UHF antenna to get UHF service seperate to the in MATV system.

Not an ideal solution but may sort your problem, especially if you can see KauKau.

Not sure why they would filter out anything here.

Hi, its normal, and well advised to only select wanted channels to keep unwanted rubbish out of the system that can compromise system performance. Only thing is if things change (like the addition of DTT) then it wont pass, this is a common issue.
