    • According to the Yahoo TV Guide, YESSHOP is on the air in Southern Cross areas (except Remote & Central Eastern Australia) on Ch54 in Northern NSW, Spencer Gulf & Broken Hill, Ch55 in Southern NSW, Regional Victoria & Regional Queensland, Ch64 in Tasmania & Ch74 in Darwin. EDIT: Launching on August 1 according to Wikipedia.
    • Thanks for feedback.  I'll look into it.
    • I upgraded from 8.18 to 8.22 beta2 (+factory reset) and while surfing channels (channel +/-), I sometimes get a black screen with no sound. Going to the next channel usually gets it working but sometimes it stays black no matter how many channels I increment through and I have to use the guide to change channels and get it working again.

    • mySwitch is a reception guide, not a panacea. A method of measuring the strength & quality of the signals from the antenna under test is required to determine whether or not a masthead amplifier is required. If an amplifier has garbage going into it, the output of the amplifier is a higher level of garbage, not better reception. This test process may require a selection of antennas to determine the most suitable, and will usually require checking the mounting location & height for best performance, particularly where signals are blocked by buildings or terrain. Selective attenuation can also occur when blocking of signal is a potential issue, whereby only one channel appears to be affected. Your problem could also be related to an electronic appliance generating interference only on channel 7's frequency. It's unlikely, unless you go around turning power off to electronic devices in yours or other people's places, whether this could be effectively isolated.     That's poor. This quality measurement is after all error correction on the received signal has been performed, & suggests to me that the signal is close to failure all the time, explaining the picture/sound breakup you are experiencing when the signal quality goes "over the cliff".   In my opinion you need someone with the right equipment & expertise to sort this. You might get there yourself, but at what cost?
