    Winter Hill (Again)

    Hi all,

    After you sorted the issue I was having with the Lancashire petal from Winter Hill Transmitter (as per this thread https://www.world-of-satellite.com/s...(Preston-Area)),

    Due to the 700mhz clear-out, it has happened again...

    if I scan with ABM set to WH (lancs), channel 7 is blank, when I use DVB-T frequency finder, switch to North West terrestrial, it finds Liverpool petal on Channel 7 not Lancashire.
    however it is showing in terrestrial services as Thats TV

    Can you please sort, I know i opened a can of worms last time .....so apologies in advance

    Warren

    Just noticed that when ABM provider set to Winter Hill (Lancashire) and Channel 7 is That's TV (but blank), it is set to 754mhz but I believe it should now be 626mhz,
    with some more changes due in 22 April 2020 as stated here Freeview Detailed Coverage Checker _ Freeview.pdf

    Have you tried using "North West terrestrial" again after running frequency finder?

    The terrestrial.xml file contains old data for Winter Hill.
    554 -> 754
    706 -> 562
    would be the current state, but that's changing again on 22 Apr.

    Thanks, I have updated the Terrestrail.xml file used for scanning in Enigma2. But that is irrelevant to ABM. ABM reads tables SI tables for almost all providers it works with.

    I don't understand final implication of what you are saying so cannot make any changes to the ABM file.


    Please answer following question with a simple yes or no (add full stops to make 10 digits). Do not add any more comments, otherwise we go around in circles. If you wish to make more comments, please make a separate post.



    Question:

    Does ABM's frequency finder work correctly for you?

    This is the hack that was added, it just needs updating

    https://github.com/oe-alliance/AutoB...fb5673b06c6b23

    This is beacuse

    Yes, There are 3 petals for Winter Hill Multiplex L

    Liverpool Petal
    Manchester Petal
    Blackpool/Preston Petal

    Multiplex LL - Liverpool
    Bay TV Liverpool

    Multiplex LM - Manchester
    That's Manchester

    Multiplex LPR - Preston
    That's Lancashire

    There are some references to "petals" here (not for North West) ....

    Set tuner config to Europe or UK defaults. Open satfinder. Go through each transponder in turn. On each transponder press the yellow button to display the channel names. Work out which is your local mux. Make a note of the TSID/ONID and frequency. Post the result.
