Retune needed for ITV4 Tuesday 25/8

Post by albertd »

For the info of those who have not picked it up elsewhere, ITV4 is changing Mux on Tuesday and will become unavailable without a retune. Especially important for anyone following La Vuelta a Espana cycling event.

This change will, however, make ITV4 available for the first time in Freeview Lite areas.

I have no idea as to when on Tuesday this will be happening and there is no point in retuning until it has. Presumably the clue will be no picture on LCN24.

There are two repeats of the cycling event the next day throughout the tour.
In answer to tour question, I believe the advertised time is 12:00 (I haven't seen the message for a while) but the change-over frequently happens before this between 11;00 and 12:00. If a retune isn't done usually the programme continues to be on the original mux with an LCN in the 790 region. Your Toppy should cope with this and record as normal.

For a MUX move at best there will be a info page on the old slot, and 790s only appear after retune?

To clarify, AFAIK the Toppy totally ignores LCN changes until a retune. If it continues to be broadcast on the old Mux with a 790-series LCN your Toppy will not notice the LCN change until you retune, so you will not experience any problems till the old Mux broadcast ceases. If the old Mux broadcast is replaced by a warning with a 790-series LCN, you will get that when you select the old LCN (provided the warning is pukka video rather than interactive).

Or MOTO GP highlights.

Can I ask if there's a way of retuning just my chosen channels or do I have to go through the business of deleting all the **** channels after a full retune?

Channel Manager is my current weapon of choice for managing retunes and channels on the Toppy. But as I watch ITV4 on my Digitalstream PVR I will be going for deleting the old location of ITV4 followed by an update channel scan on that.

The changes have been done and I have successfully (I hope) rescanned everything that matters, especially the Toppy.

I found my series linking of the cycle race was corrupted, so tonight's recording was started manually while I sort out the others.
