As of today (11⁄02⁄2008) the ABC network are re-numbering their channels. The new channel names and numbering will be:

Old NameNew NameOld NumberNew Number
ABC2 DigitalABC22122
* - ABC in this case will previously have differed by region, for example Sydney would have been "ABC TV Sydney" and Brisbane would have been "ABC TV Brisbane", all of these channels have changed to just being "ABC1".

We have updated the channel name and number information in the guide this morning as we have confirmed that this change has gone through. More information on the change itself can be found on the ABC website at

Now that ABC has made this change the majority of PVR's will require a re-scan of the channels. The easiest way to do this on the majority of PVR's is to re-run through the setup of both the guide and scanning of channels, all setup guides are listed on our website at
