Hi

What Box are you using?
I can pick up everything on my DVB-T box but TVCentral shows up as 65535 along with TV33.

Cheers

I too get this channel an im no in Auckland ether, but the strange thing is that I can only receive it from my Hauppauge Nova-T USB stick.
I'v done a quick and "full" scan on the Sony Bravia TV and it picks up all the channels but TV33, real strange...

Seems the TV is excluding this channel for some reason... maybe it knows im not in Auckland :P

PS, thanks for unlocking this topic.

I think it might be something to do with devices being completely compatible with the Freeview|NZ specifications.
You are using a USB stick, so I'm guessing its just using the generic standards for Freeview, whereas, your Bravia TV might be certified for Freeview|NZ and be not allowing channels based on where it says they are allowed because I do believe the specifications vary between countries.

Could this be the reason?

Yeah I think it is certified for Freeview|NZ, is there anyway to change it to say Auckland location... lets say I was moving there for the weekend and brought the TV, how would I get it to receive that channel... Some store guy said I had to ring up Sony for instructions to change it...

Oh and yeah the USB stick is a generic one.
