I have noticed on my free to air satellite system that STV never shows live FA cup football which ITV 1 and UTV covers.Instead viewers are served up old films which fall far short of good entertainment.West Ham v Man Utd replay is in live next Wednesday on ITV 1.Im sure many viewers in Stv area would prefer live FA cup football.

Mary patrick: As its only the BBC channels that you have lost then before attempting anything I would first of all check with a neighbour to see if they are also experiencing a similar problem, as although no transmission faults have been reported as yet you cannot always go by this.

If though the neighbours report all is OK with them then you should take the aerial out of the TV and carry out an auto tune without it, of course nothing will be picked up as all you are doing is blanking out the TV's memory store, but once the auto-tune has completed re-connect the aerial and carry out a second auto-tune to restore the channels, giving an update on results.

Further info supplied as appropriate.
