For the last six years, I have answered many thousands of personal emails that you have sent to UK Free TV.

Sadly, I am unable to offer this personal service at the moment.

Until I can restore this service, please can you leave any questions you have on an appropriate page, where they will be answered as soon as possible, or below, if you can't figure out where to ask.

I look forward to your questions!

Mike Smethurst: Your digibox has retained the tuning information for the programmes prior to DSO1, and has added the "new" MUXs it has found by placing the programmes up in the 800s as a consequence.
You need to make the digibox "forget" all the old tuning data - this may need you to select "factory reset" or "default settings" or "first time installation" or similar from the installation menu.

David: There is still analogue in the sense that the RF output from your Sky box is analogue. Switch back to analogue to watch via the analogue RF with magic eye.

I have just looked at the instructions on how to clear all channels and update freeview for the digital changeover. However, the instructions give advice re a 'Freeview box' Will these same instructions work if the TV has Freeview built in, so that I disconnect the aerial from the TV?

KayPot: yes, treat the TV the same as a separate Freeview box. Essentially the TV just has the Freeview equipment as an internal component.

Hi, I've checked my post code GU47 0XS and found that I am still unable to receive anty freeview channels until I beleive Feb next year. Is this correct? I don't live in any far out location its roughly the middle of the south east. How come houses just round the corner get a good signal from the same transmitter?
