Wendy: I might be worth switching the box off at the mains for a few minutes. Is this the only channel you are missing?

I now have no signal for Channel 5+1, 5 USA, 5 USA+1, 5*, 5* + 1 and CBS Drama. These channels are all one after another on my box. We have reset the box and retuned it but still "no signal" for all these channels

Wendy: Sorry to hear that, it does sound like there is a problem with your box, or possibly the LNB on the dish.

How can I get CBS Drama on Freeview? It doesn't come up when I retune automatically. Is there a chanel code to put it in manually?

Why not put CBS Drama on LCN 67 on Freeveiw UHF Channel 39 and we can remove Idel world shopping channel and replace it with CBS Drama Channel and move the Community Channel from UHF Channel 33 to UHF Channel 35 where they can have both Community Channel on LCN 63 and Community Channel HD on 109 and have a fixed contact to surcue this to Happen.
