Leadtek/Digital switchover

  InTheCity 16:57 30 Jun 2009

I have the Leadtek DVT 1000 S,Prior to swichover(now in phase 1)all channels were recieved,since a rescan for channels BBC1 and BBC2 are missing.These are now on frequencey 506mhz as per the switchover people.
I think ive ruled out the aerial as the set top box is ok from the same one.
Any suggestions or members who have been through the switchover and experience with this card.

Tried "the others"scan if that makes sense but same result.This should pick up other frequencies,but stuck.Maybe if i wait for phase 2 on july 22nd?

The switchover is now complete.The result is i cant recieve any channels through this card.Ive now tried a spare usb tv stick and it picks them all up using same software.Must be a limitation of the card?shame only bought last year from nobatech.

should be novatech.

It's more likely to be a problem of some sort with the software rather than the card.

Have you downloaded the latest version from the Leadtek or software company's website?

Another thought is to temporarily try setting the country to Italy rather than UK (Italy uses the same DVB parameters as the UK) when doing a new scan.

Thanks for reply
The software works fine with the usb stick picks up all channels,just none using the tv card.Im using the latest software/driver.
I have spoken to novatech this morning,leadtek will review the changeover and issue firmware update once its been analysed.
ps thanks for the italy tip,worked on the usb but alas no joy with the tv card.
