Re: Freeview changes

CCXTV has moved from COM5 to COM4
and
Hochanda has moved in the opposite direction from COM4 to COM5.

The latter actually matches the hours announced a few weeks ago when Hochanda said it was expanding them. So they've swapped slots.

Also: New Channel!

Ideal Extra has launched on Channel 94 on the Local Multiplex.

Yes, it seems that they've added an extra stream on the Local Multiplex!

I've got no picture or sound, but can confirm the guide data is there. I've still got the other channels on the multiplex so this isn't a replacement.

I can't confirm it, as I'm not techie enough, but I think they've changed how the Local Multiplex is broadcast. It was QPSK and now is 4QAM according to my TV, for all the channels broadcasting on it.

Do anyone 100% know who own CCXTV?

We are thinking it Forces TV or Talking Pictures TV.

Ideal Shopping Direct (who run the Ideal World shopping channel):

It's been speculated that it will only appear on Freeview as it was created for Ideal World to be able to sell off the slot.

Re: Freeview changes

Media Boy, what has the schedule info for That's Scotland got to do with Ideal Extra? Aside from both being on the Local Mux they've got nothing in common.

Also, are you getting video/audio for it? I'm not, but I get the EPG info and the other channels on the multiplex are fine.

I can see "Local Channels" being axe soon plus I was just letting everyone know what That's Scotland is broadcasting.

Ideal World Extra is working fine with sound and Video with me.

I can confirmed that Ideal World Extra is broadcasting 24 hours.

Re: Freeview changes

I tuned into That's Scotland this afternoon and was greeted with an ABBA video. A great increase in the quality of content!

I'm thinking my local transmitter hasn't configured Ideal Extra properly, I've checked on multiple devices, all get the other Local Mux channels no problem. They aren't likely to find out any time soon given how few viewers they'll be getting.

I wonder how much room the Local Mux now have with Ideal World Extra being added

Three more SD 24 hour Channels?

I haven't found any confirmation about transmission change aside from what I've seen on my TV's settings. RXTVinfo showed me a DBR graph screenshot from after Ideal Extra was added but I can't find it on DBR.

Re: Freeview changes

CCXTV now has a 24 hour slot, but it's broadcast hours haven't changed. It's currently only showing an off air slate during it's extra hours whilst Ideal Shopping Direct decide what to do with the extra hours now available to them.

Re: Freeview changes

​There was speculation what Merit, from ITV, was when the channel license appeared as few weeks ago.

Now we know, a cooking and gardening channel taking over the Freeview ITV3+1 slot and channel number 34.

Full details here.

Re: Freeview changes

I can confirmed that my Freeview EPG is reporting that ITV3 +1 will have new broadcasting hours on Freeview from Tuesday (July 28th)

ITV3 +1 will start broadcasting from midnight to 3am from Tuesday.

Re: Freeview changes

Merit now has EPG data (Source: my Freeview HD TV). On Wednesday 29th it has info from 9pm until midnight as expected. However from Thursday onwards its schedule is from 8pm to 11pm which probably means CITV is having an hour reduction in hours as ITV3+1 shares that stream currently.

Posters on Digital Spy have reported the same schedule hours, so it's not just my television.

As an interesting (well to me ) difference Media Boy, my TV is still showing the current hours for ITV3+1 for as far forward as the guide goes. I think this is just the way the guide on this TV is populated. I expect it to change eventually.
