How do I re-tune my TBN receiver to get the new Hillsong Channel?

Please note the reception is on the Optus D2 Satellite which is available to Australian and New Zealand viewers.

  1. In some cases you may not need to re-tune if you’ve retuned recently to TBN PACIFIC earlier in the year.

    To see if this is the case, just go through your channel list and see if you can see the words “spare” right beneath the TBN PACIFIC channel.

    If you can see the words "spare" directly under the TBN PACIFIC in your channel listing then the HILLSONG CHANNEL most likely has already been pre-tuned for you. Just select the "spare" channel with your remote and press OK. If you see a video promo of Hillsong, then you're already pre-tuned. You will need to just rename the channel to the HILLSONG CHANNEL. Just edit the channel name and rename it to HILLSONG CHANNEL.

  2. If you don’t see the “spare” directly under TBN PACIFIC in your channel listing then you will need to retune using the following parameters. Please note a Satellite HD receiver is required, if you're not sure if your model is compliant please contact us.

    THE OPTUS D2 PARAMETERS FOR TBN PACIFIC AND HILLSONG CHANNEL ARE;

    Frequency: 12546

    Polarization: Vertical

    Symbol Rate: 22500

    FEC: 3/4

    Please contact your local satellite installer if you have followed the steps above and still experience issues.

Retuning didn't help?

Please ensure your satellite receiver is HD compliant. In most cases, an HDMI port will be seen on the rear of your unit. If an HDMI port is not seen on the rear of your unit then this is a clear sign that your receiver is an SD receiver with composite/component outputs only.

Another sign to look for is if after your retune you only hear sound but have no picture. This is another sign that your receiver is an HD receiver. You will need to purchase a new HD receiver. Please contact AV Plus to purchase a receiver.
