View Full Version : UK sudbury freeview transmitter .frq file

I don't suppose anyone has a current one of these they could post please?
ITV2 seems to have dropped off the map and I cannot find out why?
I'm possibly missing a few new channels too.

I assumed you've tried a rescan? If not, back up your FRQ file, detach the tuner from the lineup, scan, check the entries in your new FRQ file, merge the two, then re-attach your lineup...

I did that - thanks
I now have a new frq file.
However, I prefer to amend my existing files rather than take the new one.
So I shut everything down and restored my old ones with a few tweaks.
But the channel setup, for both my tuners not just the one I removed from the line up, seems to have remembered channels that where in the scan but are not in my .frq files.
How to I get it back to how it was?

Did you use a lineup or just the on-air epg?

I'm using XMLTV for EPG.
I think I sussed it just now.
I just restored a sage.properties a made a copy of before the change and all is well.
Thanks for your help.

I cannot get the scan to find this channel .
But I know its there!
I have a similar problem with Sky3 but I know the program id and frequency and putting in the .frq file gives me reception.
For channel "Dave" I have no idea of the program id
Anybody there on sudbury can tell me?

There are settings in your PreDefined FRQ file that can be tweaked to improve scanning. Probably best to raise a support request with Sage and Qian will take you through it...

Well I went about this a slightly different way.
I analysed the transport stream.
Knowing the frequency I was able to get the list of PIDs and find the correct one for the missing channel.
I updated my .frq files and closed down tsreader and for good measure restarted the PC.
However, I still get "No signal" even though tsreader shows images from the channel.
Does sage have some signal strength or other threshold below which it will refuse to tune to a channel?
