No Freeview HD with TBS 6281

Post#1 » Wed Nov 09, 2016 10:45 pm

Hi all,

Just bought a TBS 6281 with the specific goal of watching Freeview HD and, when I come to do a channel scan, W7MC reports it as a DVB-T card!

So I selected "configure manaually" and it reports two tuners labelled DVB-T/T2. So I didn't worry too much about it - until the channel scan finished and I found I have no HD channels.

Does anyone know how to get HD channels on this? My Google searches have only pointed to point who have the problem, but also another DVB-T card in their computer. This isn't the solution for me as the TBS is the only card I have.

Thanks!

Turns out I was trying to be too clever. If I left it as "automatic" rather than "manually configure" then the HD channels appear just fine.

In my defence, it didn't help by the fact the card was reported as DVB-T and not DVB-T/T2/C, which is what it really is!
