Hi guys

Is there a list of channels and frequencies somewhere? I had a search of the sit but can't find anything.

I'm setting up my new AverMedia DVBT USB but when search can't find anything but FTV guide and a range of D-44 channels.

Maybe i'm not searching on the correct frequencies? Should I be scanning on a specific frequecny and bandwidth?

Maybe my aerial isn't giving me adequate reception. (I'm near Hurstville in Sydney).

Cheers!

man that's confusing... just to point out something for those that don't know, the channel number is on the left, and the frequency is on the right, seperated by a single space.

eg.

6 177.500 = Channel 6, with a frequency of 177.500 Mhz (or 177500Hz)

Would these settings work for DTV in Melbourne or are they only for Sydney ?

Appreciate the assistance.

Hey I'm still confused. I'm in Sydney (Sutherland Shire) and can get every channel except for ABC? Who else is having this problem? I have no idea but the bands in the manual are higher than 5. Please help!

Which suburb in the shire?.... it's a big area :)

There are some UHF translators in the area (eg: Stanwell Park) but most areas of Sutherland Shire are serviced by the main VHF/UHF TX on the north shore.

What antenna are you using? Older antennas were not designed for channels 11 & 12 (12 digital being ABC)

What manual are you referring to?

For the main North Shore transmitters, you require a band 3 & 4 antenna. Band 3 VHF (channels 6-12) for all channels except SBS and D44 which are UHF Band 4.


7 Network Digital VHF Channel 6 177.500 MHz

9 Network Digital VHF Channel 8 191.625 MHz

10 Network Digital VHF Channel 11 219.500 MHz

ABC Network Digital VHF Channel 12 226.500 MHz

SBS Network Digital UHF Channel 34 571.500 MHz

D44 Network Digital UHF Channel 35 578.500 MHz

haloboss,
This is a common experience in this strand. This is because the tuner had a poor signal, cannot find the signal, so the computer users think that it is a tuning problem. So they do as you do and find that the situation is unchanged.

It is common for computer tuners to have poorer sensitivity particularly when working very close to a computer which is quite noisy in the TV bands.
