Russian channels taking over

Post by Ocid » Wed Mar 18, 2020 12:25 pm


I live in south-eastern part of Finland quite near the Russian border and I have a problem with Russian channels taking over the Finnish ones.

During channel scan you can see channels 11 - 20 double and after scan most of those channels 11 - 20 are pointing to Russian channels. And after some time those Finnish channels have switched to Russian channels by themselves.

Other TVs and digiboxes in the household use the same antenna and they have no problem picking up Finnish channels in channel scan. Ok, they do have some (sometimes a lot of) screen tearing when the Russian channels are trying to take over, but they're always displaying Finnish programs.

Is there a way to "lock" channels 11 - 20 to use Finnish channels instead of Russian ones?

Heres some screenshots during and after scan

Scan ready:

EDIT: And now almost all the channels 11 - 20 are switched to Russian channels, without doing a channel scan
