7 , 7HD and 7Mate TV guide 24 April in Melbourne
« on: April 23, 2018, 01:09:35 PM »
Hi All

It seems a lot of the TV guides and the FTA TV guide for Melbourne tomorrow are showing that 7HD and 7Mate have the same programming. Is this so they can have the AFL game in HD and show their normal programing on 7 (SD) channel?
Very strange...better record the 7 (SD) channel or my wife will not be happy if I miss MKR :)

Regards Gary

Late last night or early this morning (towards the end of the transmission of The Blacklist) 7HD Melbourne suddenly became 7Mate HD Melbourne. Not pleased.

What do we need to do to recover from this shambles - Beyonwiz and Toppy in particular.
IceTV: 2xTRF-2400 + 2xTF7100HDPVRt + SKIPPA + T2 + U4
No IceTV: a few Toppys
Synology NAS
Check out the oztoppy wiki and Topfield Aus Forum for Toppy help

Hi there Garyvx and IanL-S -

Many thanks for your notes regarding the 7HD and 7Mate switchover that occurred in the midst of The Blacklist. Unfortunately, the broadcaster did not advise that this was going to occur and particularly in the middle of a a first-run, often recorded show.

The IceTV guide has been updated to reflect the 7Mate programming on 7HD for today. It looks like it will be switched back to 7HD programming after the AFL. You should see the changes reflected in the next few minutes.

Kind regards,


IceTV Guide Team Leader
