I have a problem with Freeview tv set up in my house, on the last 3 weekends l keep on lossing 4 out of 6 Multiplexs which are 1,2,A & C. We have the message no signal coming up on all tv`s.
The system installed is new including an 12 output distibution amp in the loft with new cables running to tv`s and settop boxes no splitters used.
The anologue picture is also affected as well, l have had the amp replaced 4 days ago
still have this problem.
Please can you advice.

Thank you for your helpful site which I have just found on holiday in kisser me u s a
I have just had a cochlear implant operation and can now hear again after 65 years deafness.uptil now I have had to relei on subtitles.this is my first venture into the web site stuff so could you tell me when free view arrives in Hull. If I buy a recorder box for free view will I get subtitles also can you get Yesterday programmer so as to record late start films and subtitles.
I understand it is possible to buy a freeway card from Sky but they don't provide Yesterday prog. Free. as I am a pensioner on limited means I can afford to buy a Panasonic box but don't want any further expense
Thank you for any help.regards Deaflump.

Laurie Davis: Yes, Yesterday carries subtitles and they are kept with the recordings on a Freeview+ box.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A COUPLE OF WEEKS MAKES (336 LITTLE HOURS) : You may recall the posting in your Feedback
section on Friday 18 February 2011 >>>>
"I was listening to the TODAY programme on BBC R4 this morning and they were talking about reducing the amount of adverts per hour down from the current 8 minutes on the main commercial channels and by even more on the other digital commercial channels to improve "... the viewer experience...".

How does three (or sometimes more) ad breaks of 4 minutes and 15 seconds (minimum) on ITV1, Channel 4 & Channel 5 = 8 minutes ?? I am on a different planet in a different decade.

I make it at least 12 minutes and 45 seconds per hour not 8 minutes ? and that doesn't include promos, trailers and sponsored programme inserts "... brought to you by BT Vision.... !! etc. "

Well I was listening to THE TODAY PROGRAMME last week and astoundingly they announced that OFCOM were "now" allowing ITV1, Ch 4 & Ch 5 to ACTUALLY "INCREASE" their advert slots to those of the digital channels and possibly more. This will simply encourage more of us to either record more of the prime commercial stations & fast forward through them (as John Humphreys pointed out) or, as I do, edit them out altogether so I have a totally commercial free end product that allows you to concentrate on the content. Ironically if the ad breaks were shorter I might not bother. Aren't they shooting themselves in the foot and extending us way past our tolerance thresholds. Hence "PP" (Product Placement), with yet another LOGO (heaven forbid).
