If you live in Scotland, and have Freeview HD, channel 101 will switch on Monday from being the "national service without news" to the full-blown BBC One Scotland service in HD.

If you live in the Scottish Borders and use the Caldbeck or Selkirk transmitter groups, you might have to do a "first time install" to get BBC One Scotland HD.

Again (if you live in Scotland) - Freesat (on 108) and Freesat-from-Sky (on 143) viewers will find the Scottish schedule automatically from Monday.

On satellite, the new BBC One Scotland (and Wales) services are on the BBC DSat8 transponder, which is:

ASTRA 1N, transponder 61 - 11023MHz Horizontal DVB-S2 23000-2/3 8PSK

Hello Alan, Yes! BBC 2HD will be a national network channel, rumoured launch date sometime in March! BBC 2 Scotland will be standard definition only until 2015, at least..

Andrew: Yes, you may be able to manually tune, but without any idea along the border you might be it isn't possible to say which transmitter in England you may have been picking up!

Andrew: In that case, no, there appear to be no English transmitters that you could pick up at your location so I don't understand where the message might have come from. I assumed that you were picking up a signal from a transmitter in England and was hoping to suggest that you attempt a manual tune on its frequency.

The Cheviot Hills would appear to mean that you won't be able to receive from Chatton. It's HD is on C39. For manual tuning, if your receiver has an option for mode it will need to be set to DVB-T2 (for HD) rather than DVB-T which is for standard definition.
