UK freesat E4 channel failing to record

Post by halucigenia » Sun Nov 04, 2018 12:40 pm

I have been finding that UK freesat E4 channel is failing to record/tune in on my setup.
I have recently done a tuned channel scan using my TBS 6981 dual.
I also have an omicom S2 which won't record/tune into this channel either.
Other channels on the same frequency 10714.25 record/ tune OK.
I had a similar issue some time ago which a tuned scan seemed to fix but not this time.

I have also tried increasing the timeout on my tuner but that did not help. I always receive the message “taking more than 15000 ms to get a lock...” when I try and tune into E4 in live TV.

I end up getting the recordings from E4+1 OK so it's not as if I am missing out on any recordings but it is infuriating that I can't fix it.

I don't know if this will help but you can list your channels and sort by multiplex with the channel editor
I do not know about Freesat but I'm Freeview multiplex information is very hard to find online and invariably wrong.
