Here in South Auckland, we can't get TV1 and TV2 at all on freeview right now. It says it can't find selected programme...

How?

We turned the TV on and off again. Went to the other channels (it picks them up alright), but going back to TV1 and TV2 they aren't there.


Just checked again. It says "Selected programme not Available"

We've had this SONY TV with the built-in Freeview for almost a year, and never had any problems until now...

Just checked again - we can't get U, or TVNZ 7 either. It's a TVNZ issue....

Only audio down I think, TiVo wouldn't display anything but Samsung showed video stream as normal with no audio carriers.




Spark FibreMAX using Mikrotik CCR1009-8G-1S-1S+. UAP, UAP AC Pro, UAP AC Pro Mesh, Apple TV 4, Apple TV 4K, iPad Air 1, iPhone XR, VodaTV Gen 2. If it doesn't move then it's data cabled.

Newby here.

I have a Panasonic FreeView TV in the kitchen that is refusing to display TV1, TV2, U and TVNZ7, and is reporting 100% signal on the TVNZ MUX. All other Freeview channels are perfect on that TV.

Two other Freeview devices, a Samsung TV and a Magic TV PVR, are displaying all TVNZ chanells perfectly.

I'm confused. Given what I'm seeing, or not seeing, is the problem specific to certain Freeview TV / devices?

I'm in Auckland, receiving signal direct from Waiatarua and have tried the full retuning procedure on the Panasonic TV that is not displaying TVNZ channels.

Sorry folks, major problems with DTT in Auckland and South Island starting around 5:30 tonight. It seems different receivers reacted differently to the problem, some were fine, some lost audio and some lost pictures as well. Exact cause is unknown at this stage but everything should be back up now. Anyone still having problems should first reboot their receiver, then try rescanning the channels.

OK, my Panasonic TV is now working.

Device behaviour like this, albeit infrequent, does not bode well for the future. Older people, or non tech people could be left without watchable channel(s), thinking their 'telly' has died, until they can get assistance from someone who can do a re-scan for them.

Would be interesting to know why such a problem can occur and affect some devices and not others.
