I have 4 x DVB-T tuner cards in my PC. When connected to Windows Media Centre, channel 8 London Live is identified and functions perfectly. I am trying to find a now TV Server software package and have tried several. None of them identifies London Live when an automatic channel scan is performed. One of them, Media Portal, invites me to try a manual search, but requires the following info which I cannot find online. Any suggestions?
Frequency, Bandwidth, Network ID, Transport ID, Service ID, PMT PID, and Provider

Jonathan Cohen:

All UHF TV channels are 8MHz bandwidth.
The Local multiplex carrying London Live is on 586000kHz (UHF C35) from Crystal Palace and Croydon transmitters. Freeview's ONid: is Hex 233A (Dec:9018)

The London Local mux is TSid: is Hex 800A (Dec:32778) The modulation is QPSK 8K, Code Rate/FEC: 3/4, Guard Interval: 1/32

London Live SID: is Hex 804A (Dec:32842) PMT PID: is Hex 3F2 (Dec:1010)

I'm afraid I don't know the Network ID for Crystal Palace as I'm not in the London area, and there's not a convenient list anywhere that most of us could find! Nor the "Provider" which I wouldn't have thought was critical info anyway!

I would have expected that you could have got all the info from one of you existing Tuner Cards (or most of it from a TV set Tuning section). Another handy source of some of the info is https://www.digitalbitrat…ve=9
Don't forget the the transmitter power for the Local multiplexes is a lot less than the PSBs & most COMs. So make sure you don't have anything is series with the antenna input that might attenuate the signal so it's not found on a search.

Not sure why you are telling us, this is not London Live's website, it's a free technical helpsite!

Maxwell : This isn't London Live's website and it is unlikely that anyone from the channel will see your comment here. You would be better off contacting them via their own website.

Maxwell : A lot of the films shown on channels like London Live are old royalty free movies that do not cost much to transmit. Also most are from the days when there were no such things as subtitles on anything but foreign language films. To subtitle these movies would 1) require the owner's permission. 2) require the broadcaster to employ someone to subtitle material that is not their property. This may cause not only logistical but legal issues going forward.

At the end of the day these local channels are very cash strapped. Old films are cheap fillers & being forced to increase the expense by subtitling every programme of their output it's likely these channels would simply close.

I'm afraid you'll have to ask the site owner when would he have time!
