My suggestion would be to check out
www.freeviewnz.tv/setup_support/contact_us

That seems to be the best option.

Your next issue will be trying to converse with someone who knows what
NTP is.

Cheers, Rhino

Why does it matter? As long as everyone is using ntp, they will all
be in pretty good sync with each other.

Do they use one? It's possible they derive their time from the GPS
satellites.

No No and No

They use the Colour burst signal as its a Atomic standard.


A old reference

Umm Roger, the OP was enquiring about which TIME SERVER Freeto Air HD
Tv uses, not about frequency references.

HD TV transmitted in NZ is completely digital. You'll be hard pressed
to find a colour burst signal transmitted in the data stream. Set top
boxes that output an analogue composite signal generate their own
colourburst, it is not referenced to the originating station's
rubidium (or whatever) standard.

As you say, that link references an old article, Dec 77, before
digital TV was developed. When analogue TV ends in a couple of years
that technique for obtaining an accurate reference from off air
signals will be obsolete.
