Telstra TV and Google Home Mini

ok I called support and Telstra Platinum who can't really understand the issue so I'll ask here

 

I've connected my Telstra TV to Good Home Mini.  I live in Central Queensland

 

I say to it "Hey Google - Play Channel 7 on the Telstra TV" Cool plays it

Hey Google Play channel 9 on the Telstra TV doesn't work

Hey Google play WINHD on the Telstra TV - doesn't work

Hey Google Launch Foxtel Now on the Telstra TV - Launches Foxtel Now but can't do anything else

Hey Google Open Netflix and play True Detective on the Telstra TV - doesn't work

 

Also we have had 7HD since November 2018 but it is not enabled on Telstra TV.  Why?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Telstra TV and Google Home Mini

For WINHD, have you tried saying the channel number (50 where I am) instead of WINHD?

The Google commands are fairly limited.

As for 7HD, have you retuned your Telstra TV?
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

Re: Telstra TV and Google Home Mini

I did try to say change to a particular channel but that failed saying that channel number doesn’t exist.

As for 7HD, several retunes were performed and it shows as SD

Re: Telstra TV and Google Home Mini

Done a bit of reading, and the STQ site states that the main channel switched from SD to HD. So there wouldn't be a new channel, the existing channel 7 changed to HD.
