Information needed for new channels (7flix, TEN HD and more)
« on: February 25, 2016, 06:53:46 PM »
With the launch of new channels (TEN HD, 7flix, along with 9Life and 9HD in NBN areas) we need to get the DVB Triplets for these channels so the guide information can be mapped correctly.

We need the following information for each channel in each region:

TSID
ONID
SID
Channel Name
Region

Quote
To get these id numbers for each of these channels on the Beyonwiz T2/T3/T4 units:

- First you will need to make sure that you are in Intermediate or Expert mode.
  - In T4, T2 and recent T3 software versions go to 'Menu > System > GUI Settings' and change the 'Setup Mode' to Expert.
  - In older T3 software versions go to 'Menu > System > OSD Settings' and change the 'GUI Mode' to Expert.

Now you are ready to write down the TSID, ONID and SID numbers.

1. Change channel to one of those channels that has no IceTV guide data.
2. Exit any menus, EPGs and guides etc. i.e. Go to live TV.
3. Go to 'Menu > Information > Service'.
4. Once you are in the 'Information > Service' menu, press the Green button.
5. Now note the TSID, ONID and SID details shown for this channel.

Repeat steps 1 to 5 for all other affected channels, and reply to this thread with the details.

To get these id numbers for each of these channels on the SKIPPA units:

1. Press Menu.
2. Select Settings and press OK.
3. Select Channels and press OK.
4. Select one of the affected channels and press the Yellow button.
5. Write down the Frequency MHz.
6. Write down the Triple including the colons.
7. Repeat steps 4 to 6 for the other affected channels.

Reply to this thread with the channel name, number, frequency and triple numbers (on 1 line per channel).

For example:

9 - Nine Sydney - 191.67 MHz - 4114:1056:1057
99 - GO! - 191.67 MHz - 4114:1056:1059

We will update this thread as these channels go live for IceTV in each of these regions.
Regards,

Daniel.
CTO.

Hi Dan

For Melbourne I get the following from my SKIPPA:

10HD 219.5 MHz 4116:1539:1588

7flix 177.5 MHz 4115:1283:1333

Ian

PS I hope I do not have any transcription errors this time

PS This looks nothing like the information in the prior post which I assume is from a Beyonwiz. I have not checked with my T2. On the T2 I get for 7flix 0503:1013:0535. Need to do a service scan to get 10HD but the t2 is currently recording.

I suspect the SKIPPA is reporting in decimal. The Beyonwiz reports in hex.

Yes, I suspected that was the case.

NB: in scotty's Adelaide post, while the numbers are correct, he's posted in Beyonwiz serviceref order, SID:TSID:ONID, not TSID:ONID:SID.

Hmm, I thought there was something different in the positioning of the groups. Clearly I am not the only one who gets things slightly confused when looking at this. At least I do not seem to have made any errors this time around.

Ok, 7flix and TEN HD have been enabled in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. The only region left is the Gold Coast (just need the triplets for this region). They have placeholder data until the channels start on the 28th and 2nd so they can be used right now.

For NBN regions we will not be able to change the channels around until the new channels start unfortunately.

...

The TSID:ONID:SID ordering that Daniel has suggested in his post comes from the order that they're displayed on the Beyonwiz  screen MENU>Setup>Information>Services, GREEN PIDs (where they're presented in both hex and decimal). The SID:TSID:ONID (which is the reverse hierarchical order) is how they're shown in the service ref (fields 4-6). These (but not all) values in the serviceref are in hex.

I don't think it really matters which ordering you use, as long as you make it clear :D

I thought that 7flix (at least) would also show up on Qld Sunshine Coast (the 7flix Wikipedia entry says that STQ will carry it).

In the Beyonwiz forum I've prompted for serviceref info for the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast (for the new picons). I'll re-post whatever I get here.

Daniel, I assume, because of these posts, that, like me, you haven't found a better way of getting these triples than just asking people? :(
