Hey All

I'm getting issues with channels going missing on W7MCE - seems to be I can only get Maori/Prime/CTV etc at the mo - i.e. the Kordia ones?

I have a feeling it's my DIY cable jobee - but it has worked in the past so it's probbaly getting a loose end or something.  The other half has a habit of tripping up any cable that exists. 

Is there a decent util for DVB-T signal strength? As MCE seems to work on mojo and black magic.

See if you can get yourself on the beta here

I tried but the log file I sent him didn't seem to make much sense for NZ DVB-T channels.  But then I didn't put a lot of effort into following it up either...

Its somewhat minimalistic but I have found "ScanChannelsBDA_UK.exe" extremely useful for determining signal strength. ( )

It depends on what device you have. Different cards/drivers report different signal info through the BDA sub system. E.g A Technotrend DVB-T card might report full signal quality at 50 and no signal at -50 but a Hauppauge card might report full signal quality at 278 and no signal at 0. So you really need a utility for your specifc card. At least that's my understanding of the situation, somone please correct me if I'm wrong. Remember, you need good signal quality, strength is not so important.
