Hi guys, trying to setup my new TV Tuner with MediaPortal (also trying WMC)

I believe the Ngarara site changed it's frequencies recently (some time around August?), but I can't seem to find out the new frequencies.

 I've gone to this site that states Ngarara is 666000, 730000 and 762000.

I live in Waikanae and with the antenna pointing right at the site I can't find any channels

I did however find all the channels on frequencies:

By the way, I've edited the Kapiti - Ngarara xml file so it has 570, 586, and 602. They weren't present in the default xml file.

Have they been changed to these? I get OK quality pictures, but not as good as through the Sony TV.

Can anyone confirm the new frequency?

Yes it looks like the channels were restacked in your area about two weeks ago. See -->here<--. You might need to use that in combination with the Freeviewshop info to double-check the frequencies. I've never bothered to work out the frequency <--> channel number conversion.
