View Full Version : ABC-Qld guidedata not downloading

15-07-2007, 12:05 PM

The 'ABC-Qld' guidedata doesn't download for me. All other channels download fine.

In the past I believe it used to download OK (but not in the last several months - maybe after a channel lineup change?)

ABC-Qld is channel 193 on Austar Digital QLD, and appears to be correctly assigned in my Tivo set up (i.e. Channels You Receive)

ABC-Qld currently has (and previously had) data on Minnie (from looking in Gap Report)

Anyone else experiencing similar?

Peter - any ideas?

Sorry, I've been absent a few days.

I can't see any issues on the emulator and no one else has complained, so it seems to be an issue on your TiVo.

Find your TiVoID Use this page if you don't know it. (http://minnie.tuhs.org/twiki/bin/view/FAQ/HowToFindTheUniqueTivoID) then check to see if you have received all your slices at myslices.pl (http://minnie.tuhs.org/tivo-bin/myslices.pl)

Thanks - I took your advice, and see that I download slice files QL14016

I then had a look through the Headend config files, (and can' t claim to have any real understanding) but notice that:

is as follows:

provider: 04016 Austar Digital
version: 37
lineuptype: Satellite
use CableSat/Foxtel_Digital.lnup
channel: 102 ABC-NSW
channel: 104 SBS-NSW
channel: 126 ABC2 DoNotShift

Just wondering why line 4 refers to Foxtel_Digital.lnup?
There is no reference in CableSat/Foxtel_Digital.lnup to Ch 193 (ABC-Qld).
Why would it not refer to CableSat/Austar_Digital_Sat.lnup instead which seems to fit the Austar line up better (and includes Ch 193...)?

This may also explain why I can't seem to get Ch 648 (SBS World News) guidedata...
CableSat/Foxtel_Digital.lnup has Ch 648 assigned to SBS-NEWS (which never has any guide data in it)
whereas CableSat/Austar_Digital_Sat.lnup has Ch 648 assigned to SBSWN (which has guidedata)

Am I on the right track? or completely missed the boat?

Cheers - Jonathan

You seem to be right.

I'll get the lineup changed soon.

OK thanks!

You should now have channel 193. 648 will be fixed shortly.
