Hi, can someone out there tell me if I should be able to get the same channels as freeview as I have been scanning but dont seem to be able to get Trackside channel. Any help would be appreciated. Horse lover and would like to keep an eye on the sales at Karaka thats on at the moment.
Does everyone else thinks this freeview stuff isnt straight forward

Freeview comes in on two 'muxes'. ie 2 feeds that each supply a bunch of channels.

Trackside is not (yet?) on one of the two Freeview Muxes. It lives on the SKY mux and is one of the few channels on there that is (currently) not encrypted.

Enter these details and scan and you should hopefully find a bunch of channels, of which trackside is hopefully one of them.

Frequency = 12671
Sym Rate = 22500
Polarity = H for Horizontal.

Scan FTA only
