J T Webster: Yes, but are you able to view other programmes broadcast on COM7, i.e: 81 / 82 or 87?, because if not, you are not receiving COM7, as the HD channels you mentioned as being receivable are all broadcast by the main PSB3 HD transmitter.

Hi JB38
Funny enough I can receive QVC Beauty on channel 35. Is there any way I can receive CBS Drama?

J T Webster: Re receiving QVC Beauty on 35, yes you will do, as this channel number is broadcast by the COM6 (SD) transmitter whereas 112 is the HD version of the programme on COM8 HD. However, if it transpires that you are unable to view 112?, then for some reason or another you are not receiving COM7 or COM8, therefore could you please confirm (or otherwise) that you *are* able to view BBC1 HD on 101? (not just 1)

On the subject of Blaze (83) & Blaze +1 (84), forecast to be launched on 20th Sep @ 3pm, these two programmes are broadcast by the COM4 (SD) transmitter along with a number of other programmes such as ITV3 (10) / Drama (20) / 5Star (30) etc.

J T Webster: Thanks for the update re 101etc, however the fact of being able to receive same but not programmes on COM7 is inclined to give rise to suspicions that your box might possibly be one of the models unable to receive more than one HD multiplex without a manufacturers software update, this having been an issue with a number of models when COM7 first came into operation.

The way to test if it is or not is by deleting everything stored in the tuner, done by carrying out a retune "after" having removed the aerial connector, reconnecting the aerial on completion of and checking that no signal is received, which there shouldn't be.

The next stage is achieved by going into the tuning menu, selecting "manual" tune followed by entering then scanning C31(554.0Mhz). If this populates the EPG listings then your box is one of the models referred to, although it wouldn't go amiss to try carrying out a second manual tune (without deleting anything) on C47 (682.0Mhz), this being the main BBC101 / ITV HD multiplex.

Further assistance dependant on results, although it would be of assistance to know the make and model number of the box in question.

J T Webster: Unfortunately my suspicions were correct, insomuch that your DVB680 is one of the models unable to receive / store more than one HD multiplex at a time unless the software is updated, the problem with said update being that it came out back in April 2014 but "not" as an OA (over air) download, that is via the aerial whilst the box is tuned to BBC1, meaning that it has to be downloaded from the PC into a memory stick, although I will have a check to find out whether there has been an OA download or not, as there's an element of iffiness about the situation.

However, in the meantime you should try the manual tune procedure as mentioned in my previous reply, if its successful, then the remaining Mux channels (minus BBC/ITVHD) could be loaded in one at a time, as this would enable you to view programmes on COM7 albeit at the expense of BBC and ITV HD reception.

Channels in question being : 41 (BBC1) - 44 (ITV1) - 42 (ITV3 etc) - 45 (Pick TV etc) - 39 (Yesterday etc) - 51 (Local). By the way auto-tuning cannot be used.


However, the undermentioned link explains the procedure used to update the box, but which many could be excused for thinking that the procedure is more bother than its worth.
