Hey There,

I have a Tivo in my bedroom which is connected to the external aerial via a coax cable which runs under the house to a splitter in the lounge by the main TV. On my Tivo and my previous Freeview|HD box I have had trouble receiving the Mediaworks Mux (TV3, Four etc). It doesn't happen all the time and seems to happen at specific times. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks

I once had trouble receiving four on sky. It had worked previously.
Tech arrived, looked at it & said cable. He showed me how the cable I had purchased wasn't rated for sky & it had stopped working properly.

Replaced with a rated cable & never missed a beat since.

Cable is a Hills Sky Cable, says Sky Satellite on it.

Ok. Maybe not that then.

Maybe try another as a quick check?

Where are you. In Auckland, getting lots of break up on MediaWorks watching simpsons on four. TVNZ mux is perfect.

I have the same problem in Wellington, except it's the Kordia Mux I can't get. Rooftop aerial replaced, cabling checked, masthead amp fitted, and still no luck. TVNZ and Mediaworks muxes fine (I can even get them on powered bunny ears in the spare room), but no dice on the Kordia Mux.

Issue Solved!
The signal quality of the Mediaworks Mux wasn't of a high enough quality to be split, so whenever the tv in the lounge was on my Tivo couldn't receive Mediaworks channels. We had an old signal booster lying around with two outputs so plugged aerial directly to use it as a splitter. Now I can receive all the channels without any issues.Smile
