Can you still watch / see it?? For some reason, its decided to go AWOL here. Its no longer on UHF. BUT, I can still get it with the DVB-T tuner on this.

My flatmate usually watches it, she was watching it up to 3 yesterday. Then when she wanted to watch it later, it had gone. I thought they may have changed the freq or something, but no. I tried every frequency. Nothing

Seems to be showing programming at the moment.

Hmm very strange. Dont think its the outside aerial. Because we can still get prime, and the other UHF channels

Well it looks like they come on live at 2:00 pm and I have a really crap aerial but can still get Prime.

Working (in UHF) ok in Wellington
Perhaps your local translator/repeater has died.
(Click on each transmitter to see channels and frequencies transmitted).

Its probably Waiatarua. I'm pretty sure the freq is 743.2 5 here

13-02-2010, 11:37 AM
Not sure where from but I get it at 655.25

Looks like 655.25 is from the Te Aroha transmitter on the mountain

Hmm well something is stuffed somewhere. Decided to install the tuner in the other PC. Since its only analog. And cant pick it up on that either. But, the same freq (743.25) picks up the racing channel / trackside. And no sign of Maori TV. So, I can rule out the TV in the lounge and the outside aerial

Someone has posted the same thing in a nz newsgroup (about 1 today). So, the probs not here. Oh well, at least the flatmate can still watch it. Just have to leave the Xbox and PC on

Still OK here.

They've probably killed it from the transmitter here. Coz it definitely doesnt exist now on UHF where I am. Or wherever it was getting its signal from. Tried on 3 TV's and none of them can get it

AOK here in Central Auckland

Looks like its affecting Mt Eden. There's 2 of us so far that cant get it. The other guy who posted in the newsgroup is in Mt Eden as well

Looks like its back. Someone must have fixed it somewhere

Strange it doesn't work on freeview hd here in hastings but neither does channel 3,4 and some others, all tvnz channels work and prime. I didn't pick it up on analogue. However in about an hour we will be fully upgraded to rg6 cable we are still on rg59 I will update soon.

14-02-2010, 04:36 PM
RG6 and all channels are now working.
