Scanner unable to find Freesat Bouquets?

Added by John Bergqvist about 1 year ago

When Scanning for DVB-S muxes (with Network Discovery on), I can find all the channels OK, as well as the BSkyB Bouquets, but not the Freesat ones. Is there a particular multiplex that i'm missing or that Network Discovery isn't picking up?

You should have the home transponders 11778 V 27500, 11425 H 27500, 11425 is the one you want. Just play it in vlc for 60 seconds and it should pull the bouquets in.

Well they're both in my muxes, and i've streamed both now and its playing back fine on VLC, but they're not adding any new bouquets. I have 230 bouquets in total (including the pre-installed fastscan ones, the rest being BSkyB bouquets it picked up during scanning).

I have had the 'Over the air EPG' option UNticked for my Capture card, however surely if it was that causing the problem, I wouldn't have recieved the BSkyB Bouquets then?

The weird thing is it was picking the Freesat Bouquets up fine last night. All i've done since is deleted the Network (plus Muxes etc.) and re-created them all today.

I'm getting the same. I used TSReader and it appears that the Freesat Home transponder doesn't seem to have any Bouquet Allocation Tables.

Did you get any where with getting yours back?

I know it is a while since this was posted but in case anyone searches for this.
Having this issue on a new 4.2 system, I persevered and found them on the BBC Olympics channel on Mux 11425H.

Sorry to resurrect again, but is this still the case (this is the most recent post I could find)? After clearing out and starting again, I'm playing the 11425H mux in VLC, but no bouquets are displaying. However, I don't have a BBC Olympics service either (used to have, I think). All the usual BSkyBs are listed. I have two "Freesat info" Services on 11425H and 11428H. Playing either doesn't seem to do anything.

A little new to this and trying to get the Freesat bouquets to list...

Make sure you've set the position for the network AND the freesat EPG grabber is enabled & try again.

Thank you for this - I think it came down to the EPG settings, that I originally knew nothing about as I was in Basic view.

I've now got generic bouquets, but no regional ones. I suspect it's related to this: https://tvheadend.org/issues/4543

Channels came through without numbers, but that's OK for now.

Thanks for your time. Ultimately I want to configure it to behave like a £20 freesat box and sort of just work. Getting there...

After a docker update today, a rescan and playing the 11425H and 11428H muxes, all bouquets appeared. All channels appear to be present with correct numbers (except for the numbering on Radio London). Several duplicates of ITV and Channel 4 just needed turning off, together with a couple of test/odd channels. Thanks for the help on this forum.
