    UK Freeview 700Mhz Clearance Retune ini's

    Here is a thread where you can download the updated UK Freeview DVB-T tuning ini's as they become available, or you can ask for a particular one.

    I will try to produce all the Full and Extended Freeview Transmitters.

    You will need to put the updated Tuning ini for your Transmitter from the following posts into C:\Users\Public\NPVR\Tuning\DVB-T Then retune, making sure you start with the Country dropdown (United Kingdom) list first (otherwise the new ini's will not show in the transmitter list)

    The Muxes in all the following ini's are listed in the following order - not Numerical Channel Order.

    PSB1(BBCA) PSB2(D3&4) PSB3(BBCB) COM4(SDN) COM5(ARQA) COM6(ARQB) COM7(NUK7) COM8 (NUK8) LOC1

    (This is the ordering used by Digital UK, so it makes compiling the lists easier.)

    If your Transmitter is not listed below, let me know and I'll look up the changed frequencies and produce the correct ini.

    Now I know where it came from - Guess what I am using? Updating Transmitter info as I find it.
    Thanks

    Urm! I seem to have broken it somehow

    Graham I don't know if you have the time or the inclination to help on this - but:-
    First attempts with INI.xls (in the attached zip) all data was updated (up to end of Q3 2018) and about 4 or 5 new transmitters added so that it now has all the 4 or more mux transmitters in the UK. Extended the range in the index box and it all works fine

    Next I managed to compile all the post 700Mhz clearance data set from Ofcom for every Transmitter in the UK (1160 of them - no I am not going to make every ini) which is in the 700-plan-clearance-Test.xlsx
    On pasting this data into a copy of INI.xml (INI-Test.xml) and extending the Index box range - the first 90 Transmitters work but all after that error out.

    I've spent some time trying to work out where the error is coming from - but it appears to be a bit above my pay grade

    Plan was to continue updating the main ini's during 70Mhz clearance and let Sub have a clean set at the end. Then put the Full Calculator on the WIKI so anyone on a 3 MUX transmitter could make their own.

    Not really ... You are much more ambitious than I was ... and vastly more diligent.

    The table of transmitters on the Transmitters tab is defined as a named range called "trans" and this name is used instead a cell references in various formulas .... Examples include G16 and A1 on Workings ... This range was defined as ending on row 91 ... Probably because I only attempted to create fewer than 90 .ini files.

    The fix is Formulas ... Name Manager ... Click on "trans" and then click Edit ... change the range in the "Refers to:"

    The attached works for me.

    Thanks Graham - works for me too.
    I had seen the "trans" in the formulas and had guest you had never expected to go over 90 rows but couldn't work out where the range actually was

    I was not thinking of doing anything other than the Main Txs until I came upon the Ofcom before and after spreadsheets during a Google search - and got to thinking... (dangerous occupation, thinking)
