    Can someone please post the finetuning parameters for all areas so the channels can be remapped with channelmap.itcl, and then retuned.

    EDIT: Found the table Thanks to Thomson for posting it..

    What is wrong with the ones in the 7998xxx range? Most of the FTA stations have assignments in this range. If you are looking at rejigging the slices then you may also like to consider a scheme such as this. I am using this to create a fortnights worth of predicted guide data which is updated as the real slices are released.

    Nothing wrong with 7998xxx which is the range thats assigned to our Satellite (Cable) lineup. I don't want to use the same FSID's for the FTA lineup as the Satellite lineup. Some people may want both headends on one tivo..
    No sure about clashing FSID's..

    You are quite correct... buy using different FSID's the users with both Cable and RF-Tuners will be able to decide which one to use to record the FTA stations. This could be of use to people who, for example, get better TV2 reception via the Tuner than the Cable... and could be of even more use to those that wish to have ClosedCaptions on their recordings as when I last looked Sky did not support these.

    I'm looking into using Tivo for FTA with a philips VCR as a tuner.
    I'll check my tuner frequencies tonight to see what it has picked up.

    Is there anything else that I can do to help with the FTA headends?

    I'm still learning all about tivo, so forgive me if I ask something stupid...

    Cheers -

    Sorry I have not progressed much with this, I am getting married in the new year so have had little time.
    But during my christmas/new year break I will find some time to finish it.

    No Probs jaidev. Got married 3 years ago, now have 5 month old (future geek). Time that I can commit to this is also limited, but I'm building a couple (SKY Digital with Zenith STB) for my big boss.... Oh dear...

    Anyway, current problem is that when I run the zenith.tcl (downloaded from http://nztivo.kiwiwebhost.net.nz/uploads/zenithSky.tcl, as that was the only place I could find it...) I get....

    can't open object (errDbNotFound)

    Most annoying, I think I've done everything OK up until now....

    Cheers -
