jen: Multiplex C and D - after switchover we usually call them ArqA and ArqB - are still on relatively low power from Belmont. If you didn't have digital before switchover you might still have a Group A aerial, and these multiplexes are on much higher frequencies that the aerial doesn't pick up. You really need a wideband for all services.
I'm surprised anything is missing from Multiplex A/SDN, usually you get all of a multiplex or none of it. Do the channels appear anywhere else in the list, maybe around 800? If so, your box might have trouble with the size of the Network Information Table. A list of some boxes known to have trouble is at http://www.digitaluk.co.u…tnit .
I have two problems when recording BBC1 on my hard disc recorder.
I have 2 channels 001 and 800 1 is london 800 is bbceast .When I ask my program guide to series record it sometimes will not give me the option on 1 only on 800. If I use 800 some times it does not work because of a weak signel.
Last week I retuned the recorder and managed to use 1 for my programs. This week suddenly the recorder switched itself to 800 and blocked the timer when it was unable to record the program . This morning I switched it on and checked the timer settings and they were all back to 1 . I then tried to reset a program that I had canceled due to the problem but when I tried to put series record on 1 it refused to give me the option. Any Ideas what I can do. I have had a problem in the past of my recorder picking up bbc se and switching my selections in a similar way .I solved this problem by retuning and the se channel is not so close and has not come back.
John bevan: My Sony PVR does something very similar, and in the past we've accidently recorded on 803/811 (which as you say, doesn't work), rather than channel 1.
Although this is normally accidental, Case Histories hung up for the same reason last week, and since I'm fairly sure that I did set it for one, its possible that it did the same thing as yours.
However, Waltham changed channels this morning, and I noticed that after the full retune, the EPG only showed ITV & ITV +1 on the 800's, with the multiple BBC 1 800's totally gone.
I'm sure someone more expert than me can come up with an better explaination, but I'm wondering what your reception is like at your location generally.
800's are generated by having signals from one than one transmitter, so have a check which BBC1 channel has the strongest signal, and where its from. It could be that your aerial is pointing at the wrong transmitter, or there is something that stops you getting the best signal from the right one.
You can also kill off a weaker signal by reducing the power of the signal you get.
There are a fair number of websites which mention this problem, and perhaps they might be able to help. BTW - if you mention your postcode, transmitter and model of the PVR, one of the gurus here might be able to help.
hi i have a toshiba smart tv run sky dvd recorder and blu ray into yamaha receiver had ordinary hdmi3d leads because of space at back of tv replaced hdmi with right angled 3d hdmi on one of them when i turn the flurecent light on in the kitchen it makes the picture go of for about a second on the others it is alright with the other hdmi i had it did not do this any thoughts thanks
daz: Sounds like a dodgy HDMI or poor fitting - with the light's starter causing interference - try swapping it for a new one (they are not expensive - the right angled ones are about a fiver from Maplin, etc)
