ALAN PEACHEY: It looks like an IPTV service, given the channel number. You will need a Freeview HD box and an internet connection.

Thanks Briantist. I must admit I was quite surprised to see Racing UK on Freeview as it is a very expensive channel to view.

ALAN PEACHEY: I might not be free, it could be an IPTV stream you have to pay for.

Hello Brian,

I wonder if you could help with this Freeview problem I'm having or direct me to a page on the site? I am based in Morpeth Northumberland and I'm having problems with my signal quality fluctuating from 0 to 100 every second frequency 59 (770k mhz) which is preventing me from getting any channels on this frequency. All the other frequencies and channels have a varying degrees of Intensity and Quality but I can get a picture on all of these. The Channels from 59 have only stopped working this past week which is what is strange.

I have a digital aerial outside which feeds to a signal booster, then to a Freeview box then into my TV. I've tried varies things to change this but have yet to get any results.

Any help is greatly appreciated

I need some help please. I have a sky dish with a quad connector on. It has 2 white cables already runnung from it, i assume two as i have sky plus.
So i have two spare, i brought an old sky digi box(still has card) off ebay and connected it all up and put the cable in one of the spare connectors on the quad thingy. But it says no signal.
What am i doing wrong?

carl: Basically on the face of it you havent done anything wrong, but the fact of you not getting any signal obviously means that a fault exists somewhere, and considering the source of the latest Sky box I suggest that you test it out by sitting it on top of the Sky+ box (space allowing) and swapping the connections from the Sky+ box over to it, using any one of the two "F" connectors from the Sky+ box as they are exactly the same technically.

If it doesnt work then you need go no further as obviously the box is faulty, but if it does take it back to the original position and unscrew the dish feeds "F" connector to make sure that a single strand of the braiding hasn't accidentally wrapped itself around the middle conductor, then screw it back on again and carry out another test.

If unfortunately it still doesnt work then you will have to check the "F" connector at the LNB end, and whilst you are at it, to save the possibility of another inspection put the "F" plug back into the other spare port, giving an update on results.
