Request for your transmitter/tuning info.

I'm attempting an information collecting exercise to help with the tunefix-update package (but you don't need to have tunefix-update installed though).
This request is for MAIN transmitters only. Please ignore if you receive from a relay transmitter.

If you can help, please could you run the "txinfo" diagnostic from the WebIf's Diagnostic page and then either copy/paste the info. generated here in this thread or, if you'd rather not give away your region, put it in a PM (Conversation) to me.
Include the name of the transmitter you (think you) are receiving from.
e.g. mine for Mendip looks like
Running: txinfo
3|33|0
3|35|0
3|48|0
3|49|0
3|51|0
3|52|0
3|54|0
3|56|0
3|58|0
3|12346|West

I'm especially interested in the following transmitters:
Bluebell Hill
Dover
Heathfield
Tunbridge Wells
Midhurst
Whitehawk Hill

Bilsdale
Selkirk
Caldbeck
Craigkelly
Black Hill/Darvel/Torosay/Rosneath
Durris
Angus
Douglas
Olivers Mount

but not at all in these:
Mendip
Wenvoe
Emley Moor
Belmont
Waltham
Pontop Pike/Chatton
Hastings

All the rest (I won't list them!) would be useful but not essential.

To avoid unnecessary duplication, please don't post if someone has already done your transmitter.

Thanks.

I ran it on Hastings but won't post as you don't want it, but what does it all mean, especially the ones with the big number in the second column?

Too late :rolleyes: :laugh:

You don't have COM7 on your box for some reason. Yours is different because you've done a retune for COM8 whereas Wallace hasn't.

I already had your tuning DB to confirm the details!
The first set of rows are Index|RF channel|Offset flag. The second set are Index|Service ID|Region name.
Index just ties the two sets together (relational database standard stuff). RF channel and Region name are fairly self-explanatory. Offset flag is 3 if your TX's frequency is offset down by 167 kHz, 2 if offset up by 167 kHz and 0 obviously for no offset. I didn't know this until yesterday but had been musing about how it was done up to that point! I doubt there will be any other values, but you never know until you see the data.
Service ID is a regionalisation indicator - different TXs have different combinations of services (programmes or ads. or both) on certain muxes. so need different identifiers. Com78 National is a new 'region' which is being used for the SFN being introduced on COM7 and COM8, and will be the same across the UK. You can't have an SFN with different content in the mux., which is how it was before between different regions, hence the change a week or two ago.

The first set of rows' detail is available from ofcom by downloading the excel workbook or both the CSV files. This may be easier to manipulate into the desired format rather than copying from each post.

But no sign of the service id that I can spot.

That is the problem!

Yes, I know, but I need a way to relate the two and the only reliable way to know what service ID matches which TX is to generate the two bits at the same time.
That also gives a sanity check to what the person says is their region matches reality.
