Triangle Television's signal is transmitted from Waiatarua in West Auckland, Pine Hill on the North Shore and from Remuera. It reaches north beyond Whangaparaoa, east to Maraetai and south to the Bombay Hills. Most homes in the Auckland region is able to receive a clear picture and sound.
However, reception will be affected in areas situated in valleys or shadowed by physical features such as hills and tall buildings.
It is highly recommended to install a UHF aerial to attain a clear picture.
If you already have Freeview HD (i.e. terrestrial reception, not satellite) and you have recently replaced your CRT TV with flat screen model, you most probably are ready to watch Triangle TV. On your remote, there should be a button saying [analogue/digital], which toggles between the two broadcast systems.
If your TV set is not tuned into Triangle TV, consult the operating manual for your TV set for tuning instructions specific to your model. This will tell you how to find and store new channels.
Triangle TV's frequencies:
Waiatarua UHF 41 or 631.25 MHz
Remuera UHF 52 or 719.25 MHz
Pine Hill UHF 42 or 639.25 MHz
IF YOU NO LONGER HAVE THE MANUAL, TRY THESE INSTRUCTIONS:
Find the tuning controls which are usually located either behind a door or removable panel on the front or the side of the set.
Choose a channel on your TV set not used for another station (e.g. 5 or 6) and move to that channel.
It's usually best to tune your TV set manually. If you have automatic fine tuning (AFT) make sure this is turned off.
If your TV has a [preset] button, press this.
The screen may display [VHF], either switch the band selector to [U] for UHF or press the [Band] button again until UHF appears.
Adjust the tuning up/down until a clear picture and sound appear. Press the [Preset] or [Memory] button to save the channel settings.
Turn the AFT control back on. As every model of TV and video recorder seems to have different tuning controls, it is difficult to give specific tuning instructions that will match every TV and VCR.
It is suggested you call the manufacturer if you are having problems. If you find you need further help call your local aerial installer.
