Why has BBC 4 HD and other HD channels on freeview gone off the air. I have reset my TV, gone through re-tune, all to no avail. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Richard G:

None of the HD channels have gone 'off air' at all, Winter Hill is working normally at present. BBC4 HD is available on COM7 (554 MHz).

It may be that you have too much signal for the HD services to be reliably received, HD tuners tend to be particularly sensitive and excessive signal strength stops them working properly. So please would you check what the revelvant signal strengths are for COM7 at 554 MHz, COM8 at 602 MHz and BBCB at 737.8 MHz. You can usually do this by using the manual tune facility but without doing any tuning *check your User Manual if you are unsure how to do that). A strength of between 55% and 80% is normally acceptable - you do not want 100% strength at all! Note that it is the strength and not the quality that is of interest. Please report back here when you have the figures.
