Trouble Receiving the MyTalk Digital TV Station

I’ve had a few people ask me why they can’t receive MyTalk’s Digital TV station despite being in a coverage area, and a few more people have landed on this blog by asking Google the same question, so I thought I should probably provide a public answer.

Some newer digital receivers seem to automatically pick up new stations belonging to an existing group of stations (for example, Southern Cross Ten in Canberra has in their group the main channel, a high definition channel, and the MyTalk channel), which means that you can tune in to the new stations without any hassle.

Older receivers, and many of the current cheaper receivers, do not perform this function, on them you need to scan for new channels manually. Exactly how you do this will depend on your receiver, so you should consult your instruction manual if you’re not sure, but in most cases there is a menu option available for this. If your receivers allows you to rescan the current channel, then tune to any other station in the group (for example, if MyTalk is 55 in your area, tune in to 5) and rescan the channel, this is a lot quicker than performing a full channel scan.

I’m going to be up in Sydney for the rest of today and most of tomorrow, mainly for John Kerr’s 2UE Listener Lunch (there are still a few spaces left if you want to come, see the linked article for details). John Kerr, Stuart Bocking and over a hundred of their listeners will be there, and it has even been rumoured that Tim Webster may turn up…we’ll wait and see.

I have a flight up to Sydney later this morning, it is the first time I’ve been on an aeroplane and I’m looking forward to it.

With any luck I’ll have far too many photos for your enjoyment on Wednesday, although I suspect Thursday is more likely.

I haven’t had enough time to prepare much blog material for the next few days, however you do have an episode of Samuel’s Persiflage waiting for you to enjoy.

If you happen to be in Sydney and spot me, feel free to say hello. For security reasons I am not publishing details about my itinerary.

Have a great couple of days, I know I will!
