Jamie Rose: Don't know if anyone else is getting this error hope it gets fixed.

This error can only be fixed by you buying a new Freeview HD+ TV or Freeview HD+ set top box connected to the Internet because as the error message clearly explains "device not compatible."

Services listed in the 200-299 range are not broadcast over the air but via the Internet. The over the air EPG just carries an entry pointing to the IPTV service which can only be accessed by a Freeview HD+ (newer than 2012 or so) capable receiver connected to the Internet.

It you want to watch Vintage TV without such a device, just point your satellite dish to Astra 2 cluster at 28,2 East and tune your satellite receiver to 11.261 GHz horizontal, SR 27500000, FEC 2/3, SID 52180, Video PID 2315, Audio PID 2314

There are many more music video tv services (at least 19) FTA from Astra 2 28,2 compared to the 2 (?) remaining on Freeview.

Okay just wanted to know why it's not working on tv freeview that's already built in, tv is made in 2011 or 2012 somewhere around there, and it's blaupunkt 40inch. Just wounding why vintage tv is on a newer tv or freeview HD.?
