    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.

    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.
