Sarah: If you are referring to a Sky box? and have disconnected it from the mains supply then waited 30 secs or so before reconnecting it again, then once it starts to respond to the remote control allowing it to search for listings it should find the new frequencies itself, but whether you can view them or not really depends on where you are located in the South of France, this caused by the new 2F satellite used Ch5 etc having a very restricted coverage area outside of the UK, hence this can only be received from a level roughly from between Bordeaux and Nantes on the West sweeping around and upwards towards the East near the Stuttgart area. However just in case you are not using a Sky box these are the settings to use, this enabling the the following channels to be viewed / Ch5 / Ch5+1 / 5 USA / 5 USA+1 / 5* / 5* +1 Press SERVICES on your remote control. Select (4) :- SYSTEM SET UP Select (4) :- ADD CHANNELS FREQUENCY :- Punch in 10.964 POLARISATION :- H SYMBOL RATE :- 22.0 FEC :- 5/6 then select FIND CHANNELS, once completed do not forget to select the ones required by pressing the yellow button to tick them then saving the results. (latter referring to Sky box)

Richard E: It denotes the selected mast, as there can be more than one mast shown on most maps.

I receive different BBC1 regional news on my tv and freeview box. The TV receives South Today and the box receives Southeast Today. I am on the Rowbridge transmitter, from Hove.

K. Sinclair: In which case the box cannot be tuned to Rowridge, for BBC at least. This is because Rowridge broadcasts BBC South. Whitehawk Hill broadcasts BBC South East, so I guess that it will be tuned to it. You should be able to check by bringing up the signal strength screen on BBC One. Rowridge broadcasts it on UHF channel 24 whereas Whitehawk is on C60.

As your aerial faces Rowridge, but is picking up Whitehawk as well, unplug the aerial when it gets to 30% of the scan; all Rowridge channels are below this and all Whitehawk ones are above.

I have a Panasonic DMR-BS850EB Blu-ray disc recorder. I am beginning to wonder if it is possible to record programmes on HD channels. I can record 'ordinary' channels but seem to have no success when trying HD. Am I doing something wrong?!

Helen There are some restrictions on copying HD programmes to Blu Ray discs - see page 58 of your instruction manual - but there aren't normally any restrictions on recording HD programmes to your hard drive (HDD) in the first place. I have 2 similar Panasonic recorders - 1 terrestrial, 1 sat and I record HD programmes frequently. Sometimes programmes recorded on ITV are limited to burning 1 copy to Blu Ray disc. Neil

I have sky and 101 BBC has gone? Saying no signal received. Everything else is OK. Do you know how I can get this back? I have switched on and off but just blue screen. This problem has come since I have on demand extra box. Is this my problem?

why does my tv eye in the bedroom stop controlling the box in the front room every evening from 5.30 pm until around 10pm? it works fine in the morning and if I am using it in the afternoon but each night it seems to have a mind of it's own? can you suggest any answer?
