The Weather Network HD (Canada)

Post by tvroadmin » Mon Mar 04, 2019 9:17 am

This one is for Canadians. The Weather Network (similar to Weather Channel in USA) has launched an HD feed on Anik F1R (107° west). You can find at the following location: 107° west - 4100V - 28346 - DVB-S

It scans in as "testtesttest". If you have problems with the audio, manually edit the transponder so it uses the SD audio which is the same. The good thing about this feed is that it is a national feed and has all the graphics/data built in, unlike the regional SD feeds which require commercial equipment to overlay the data.

Just watching right now and it looks really coooooooooold up there in Canada. Someone turn on the defroster... :wink

Thank you,

For the information on this channel. Saw our first snow devil this morning and really enjoyed the programming. Very informative and well presented. Also there are a minimal amount of commercials which itself is awesome.

Looking forward to sunny days,

Hello,

A few days ago, the sound on this wonderful channel "went away". I was getting ready to "manually edit" the transponder in satellites.xml, when I streamed this channel through a browser via the ZGemma's on board web page. The sound played just fine. Watching this channel off a recording also provides the missing audio. Easiest of all, watching this channel on a timeshift, after hitting the pause button also provides the audio. So I am going to leave the transponder code alone, as I am not sure where it is, having never manually edited a transponder. This is quite fascinating!

Enjoying this fine weather channel,

Same here. On zgemma the audio comes and goes. On the edision the audio always works. Firmware issue?

You can manually edit the pids to fix the problem. Open dreamset, double-click on the channel and scroll down to "PIDs". Check the box for "Use Pids" to yes and then enter them (video = PCR = 512/audio=800) manually. While you are at it, change the channel name from testtesttest to something like Weather Channel Canada HD. Worked for me. :bigsmile
