Re: Windows Media Centre, Freeview, 18th April Switchover,


[re: kleh] [link to this post]
 
It's not held locally on the PC, it's stored and updated online by data providers working on behalf of Microsoft. Microsoft maintains a website where you can comment on the accuracy of this data (at https://connect.microsoft.com/site1145), which I referred to in my intial post. I posted there on 18/04 questioning whether the London data had been correctly updated after switchover. Microsoft confessed "We have been informed by our data providers that there was a temporary delay in data upload, but this should be correct tomorrow." As far as I can see, the mappings have still not been updated, and I am pretty certain that it is this, rather than Media Center software or tuner hardware which is causing the problem. If you google "Digital Switchover" you will see that exactly the same thing happened in the USA in 2009, and people were unable to use Media Center for weeks.

Are you replying to me about the location of the tuning data for WMC?

Both your links to MS don't compute cuz you need spaces around URLs; corrected above.

And what was your link meant to be in your post: http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/windows/t/4116558-r... ? Even with space it does not compute. Spell it out.

Not that one but the one that looks like: https://connect.microsoft.com/site1145/feedback/deta... ?

Of course it looks fine to you; you put a newline after it. Have you ever tried clicking on your own links?

Right, the tuning data, channels & slight frequency shifts, has changed since the switch-overs on all regions and it doesn't look as WMC has caught up.

I've changed the preset tuning data on my 2 TV tuner packages. However, on Hannington transmitter, I can only tune 2 multiplexes out of 5 (the 6th is HD only) and get about 52 stations out of 114. I shall continue experimenting to try and get the other multiplexes.

I also found that my previous indoor aerial position is useless and I'm having trouble finding a suitable position. So maybe signal strength has reduced.

The opposite really should be the case. I am getting much better reception now on both my Freeview box and a media centre with Freeview built in. Both are using indoor aerials.

Everything worked here in SE1 using Hauppage Nove TD 500 (DVB-T) and BlackGold BGT 3620 (DVB-T/T2) dual tuners. I did a complete rescan, not a scan for additional channels procedure.
