Bett I'Anson: As per your posts on the True Entertainment page, this is not the website of CBS Drama or any other broadcaster and we don't know when they're going to show The Thorn Birds. This website exists to provide technical help with TV and radio reception problems, is completely independent and has no access to schedule information for any broadcaster.

I suggest you direct your question to the broadcasters via their websites, such as CBS Drama - Sky 149 Virgin 197 Freeviw 71 Freesat 134 and True Channels

I am a confused elderly lady and I hope you can help me by explaining why I can no longer view my favourite films on CBS Drama after 11pm. I have been viewing this channel after 11pm since last March but all of a sudden it goes off air at 11pm with the notice on screen to "Load MHEG-5". Radio Times has for the last month been printing the usual films for this slot from 11pm to 5am (Freeview 71) even tho they are not being shown. RT says they can only print what the channel gives them. I rang a number for CBS Drama who seem to know nothing about it. Strange as their advertisers should be unhappy that no-one can see their expensive advertisements. They could not tell me if they had moved these late night programs to another channel. Odd. As you deal with reception is there a way of loading MHEG-5 whatever that is or should I be looking for another type of television, in which case what would that be called? I note that channel 93 is also affected by this cut off point. So are they are no longer "Freeview" channels after 11pm.? Any help, even to say nothing I can do, will be gratefully received.

Miss Jo Andrew: Could you start by giving your postcode, and which local news you get - we dont know where you are in relation to the transmitter or what transmitter that is. It could be that you've accidently tuned into another transmitter.

MHEG-5 is a format for interactive TV - have you pressed something on the remote which might bring that up?

Sharon jessop: Do you have 4Music on 18 and Yesterday on 19? If those are working, retune and CBS Drama should appear on 71. Otherwise, please provide a full postcode so that we can see which transmitter you're using, where you are in relation to it and your predicted signal strength etc.
