Brian Springthorpe: Yes, Channel 4 HD starts soon - see Channel 4 HD free-to-air testing on Eurobird 1 | - independent free digital TV advice and Channel 4 HD to start on Freesat | - independent free digital TV advice .

Probably 1st April, as this is the anniversary of when the channel went on Sky's subscription service.

Brian Springthorpe: Film4 HD is currently exclusive to Virgin Media customers, and Channel 4 have a whole transponder in DVB-S2 mode.

So, will this be lots of ad regions in HD, or will it be Film 4 HD, Channel 4 HD+1 and Film 4HD +1 ?

Briantist, please help! I have been losing reception on several sky channels, especially those with a 4 in their name ie. channel 4 more 4 ect. So I called in the local sky installers who came in my living room, checked the signal strength with their gizmo and said the signal strength was fine so there should be no problem. I still have the same problem and out of pocket £100 for nothing.

royboy: If you do "Method (3)" on the What can my do when my Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'? | - independent free digital TV advice your box should now pick up the free-to-air Channel 5.

If you want to pay £20 for a card, call 08442 411 602.

However, you can get a Freesat branded box for £30, which requires no card, see Upgrading from Sky to Freesat
| - independent free digital TV advice

If you have an HDTV, Freesat HD boxes again require no subscription and can be just swapped for a standard Sky box - you use an HDMI cable instead of a SCART.

Just been visited by a friend who has Freesat.
He has postcode PE16 8QJ (March Cambs) but receives London BBC on 101 for the local news but Anglia on 103.
BBC East would be expected on 101, or should it, so could anyone advise please.

John Fisher: "PE16 8QJ" is not a valid postcode. I would suspect you need to use a correct postcode.

Despite any improvements to anything, OFCOM have decided in their infinite wisdom to increase the amount of time we have to sit watching those infernal meerkats and that damn Welsh bloke taking off an Italian tenor.

Sorry for including this here, but I didn't know where else to put it.
