UK Freeview signls are not available in Munich. It is far too far away from an UK transmitter for the signals to travel that far. Even many parts of Northern France are unable to get UK Freeview signals.

The only possible option may be to try a large dish aimed at the satellites positioned at 28 degrees East and tuning to the Freesat signals. The dish needed will be much larger that that used anywhere in the UK.

The other possible option is to use the 'catch up' services such as the BBC iPlayer or similar via the internet.

Briantist: Brian, how do I stop the twitter mentions whenever someone else posts in a thread? There's no user profile page to adjust this on your site.

I live in Bristol and I cannot receive any of the Bristol local broadcasting channels. All that I receive in terms of local broadcasting are the Cardiff channels. This cannot be avoided as my box does not have a manual tune function. Can anyone tell me why I can receive the Cardiff channels and not the ones for the town that I actually live in.

SomeGuyFromBristol: Does your aerial point to Wenvoe, due to local topography blocking the signal path to Mendip and KWH, or do you receive both sets of signals? If the latter is the case your tuner will put the West region services in the 800s of the channel list, simply because they are on a higher frequency so are found later in the scan. It is a fact though, that in many parts of the country it is simply not possible to receive the correct regional TV services, and sometimes radio services too, due to intervening hills blocking the signal path.

I have removed all previous stations from my epg list, I have reset to factory settings, I have rescanned, the epg info is installed. As long as as the tv is on the info/ program's are there. A few hours later I turn off the tv. When it is switched back on there are no program's there. It is driving me so mad. Never had a problem before and the tv in the bedroom is ok, still has it's epg info intact, so not an aerial problem. My tv is a pioneer with a fantastic picture, sound , a fantastic tv, that was until this recent request to rescan by digital tv

KMJ,Derby: My aerial is pointing towards the Mendip transmitter and I live at the top of a hill which is at the bottom of a bigger hill. I am able to receive channels like Channel 4, ITV West and the BBCs with Channel 4 being the difficult one that sometimes ends up on channel 8 but it seems that in good weather that the signal is worst. I don't understand how it works but it may have something to do with the fact that the Wenvoe transmitter is higher than the Mendip transmitter and the signal has been boosted because of the difficult Welsh terrain to help provide a signal across the Severn but it's interfering with the Mendip signal, which is weaker because the terrain is flatter. This however still doesn't help me understand why the Bristol local channels' signals are not boosted to compensate for the Wenvoe transmitter and the fact that the Mendip transmitter is 40 miles away from Bristol and has a weaker signal (for no understandable reason).

every time I retune to get ITV I get the channel, then when I change the channel, then try to go back to ITV I have to retune to get ITV, every time. But if I stay on ITV its ok. When on going to bed I unplug the set, in the morning I haven't got ITV so retune. WHY?
