When will Freeview HD be available in Scotland through the Craigkelly transmitter? I understood that STV and BBC HD would be available from 5th June 2011, but retuning (Hard reset) does not find chaneels 54 or 51

Thanks, KMJ

The situation for Craigkelly and Central Scotland has operated to a different timescale in many respects from the rest of Scotland and the UK (later!). It was my understanding that BBC HD and STV HD for this transmiiter would be available 5/6th June 2011, whereas for other areas it was already available - but clearly this is not the case.

Any reports out there of BBCs HD channels on satellite being off air? I'm getting nothing on either channel today but the ITV HD channels are ok, as are the BBC SD channels.

Terrific - can't get C4 HD and now no BBC HD either! Been waiting since April for fortec star to produce an update for my Passion+ box. They tell me to be patient... Are there any more standards out there waiting to be introduced that will render boxes useless? Are ITV planning the same?

George Buchanan: It's hardly new, DVB-S2 was ratified as a standard in March 2005!

Brinatist: It's new to BBC HD broadcasts and that's the problem. My box does have DVB-S2 capability but it can't locate the BBC channels now. The usual scan returns neither BBC HD channel.

I think I've got the channels now by changing the box settings to those shown on Wikipedia BBC page - someone was very quick in updating that, thaknfully. It remains to be seen if the channels will suffer the same jerkiness that makes C4 unwatchable on my Fortec Star Passion box. BBC HD looks okay so far.
