<br>Hi,<br><br>I've browsed the past few months of the archive, but have not found<br>something related. If I am wrong, please slab me hard with a URL ;)<br><br>On Friday I installed said card in a friend's machine, installed mythtv
<br>and everything looked fine (so far Ubuntu 7.04 without the latest hg<br>drivers patched into it). All channels were nicely available, but a<br>single multiplex was not available, no matter how hard we tried, e.g.<br>settings were set automatically or manually.
<br><br>I'm currently running out of options on that one. Anyway I could try to<br>gather more info on this one?<br><br>"Offending channels":<br><br>On channel number 33 at 570MHz<br><a href="http://ngs-germany.de/cms/DVBT/Programme/tabid/65/Default.aspx">

<br><br>...<br><br>We also tried different aerials, but that didn't change much. Also, the<br>multiplex was "on" all the time as we checked with a standard set-top box.<br><br>--<br>Greetings<br><br>Carsten<br>
</blockquote></div><br><br>Just as an idea... Are you sure your antenna has the appropiate amplifiers for that frequency? I had a similar experience (the Nova-T 500 locking only on a reduced number of channels and a standalone receiver on all of them), and the problem solved when the building administrators added the amplifiers for all the frequencies that missed.
<br><br>It turns that the signal amplifier in most standalone players is waaaay more powerful than the Nova-T one, so they are able to lock on the minimal signal capted directly by the antenna, but this is not the case for the card.
