I am a moron, let's just get that bit out of the way. I have been trying for two days to retune CBS Reality into my free to air digital satellite reciever. I have always had excellent quality reception with all the BBC and other UK channels. Long story short, having fiddled around with scanning and transponders etc I have finally managed to wipe out the entire selection. When I press '1' BBC1 shows up at the bottom of the screen but no picture there or anywhere else. I am cracking up because I have no idea which one of the gazzillion things I did is responsible for the complete breakdown. I know I am asking a difficult one but would you have even the faintest clue what I might have done to cause that to happen and is there anything I can to to reverse it. Oh yes, I did re-set to factory settings at one point - could this be the culprit?? Told you I was dumb! Please help. Dearbhla
