Digital TV Freq????

By MrMagoo 28 July 2009 27

Firstly, I apologise if this has been done to death on here, obviously I have missed it.

I picked up a STB [Set Top Box] on the weekend and after wrestling with it for a while, got it sorted.

However, when it scanned for the digital channels I didn’t get the Channel 10/Southern Cross feeds at all, including One.

Does anyone know the frequencies that these are being broadcast on so that I may frustrate myself with it some more this evening trying to find them?

What’s Your opinion?

Oops, just got an update – now will launch at 6.30pm on that day, not 7am.

In regards to the original poster, when i first got my STB i was unable to pick up WIN. Solution – i got a slightly taller aerial (an indoors one) and that solved it for me. Could be something as simple as that.

Is Nine’s second digital channel, Go!, available in this country town?

I was going to ask a similar question, although I knew it doesn’t start broadcasting until August. I haven’t been able to find a release from WIN indicating its intention to carry the channel. It will also be interesting given that WIN’s relationship with 9 has been strained over the past few years.

GO! Starts here next Sunday (the 8th), 7am on Channel 80.

SC10 is 177.500MHz. One HD is the same, according to my machine, although that seems odd

Not at all odd for digital.
Digital channels are “Multiplexed” and each station is given some spectrum (air space) in the 7mhz band.
In simple terms this means that one station can broadcast multiple channels on a single frequency, up to 3SD+1HD.
So whereas analogue could only carry one feed per channel, digital can carry various feeds.

That’s also why I can record ABC1 while watching ABC2 with only 1 tuner card

Mr Magoo, where are you? Or, to put it another way, where do you get your TV signals from? If you are in Tuggeranong, try 62 instead of 6.

SBS has appeared to have been pretty cactus over the last few nights as well…

It has, hasn’t it? Every night it seems to have different problems, though.

Years ago when I bought my first STB it wouldn”t pick up one of the channels, so I did some digging around in the menus. Turned out that there was a State by State setting in the startup menu, which if I recall correctly required a reboot, and a change from ‘Australia’ to ‘NSW’ or ‘ACT’. Been a long time so details are hazy but you could look for a regional setting buried deep.

Also typing the model name and number into Google or the forum at can often bring out exactly what you need.

Your real name wouldn’t happen to be Kenneth would it?

I would find great amusement in that.
