Elliot Thomas: CBS Drama is now only available to viewers with a TV or set top box capable of receiving HD channels such as BBC Four HD (channel 106) and BBC News HD (channel 107). Also, it is carried on a multiplex called COM7 which is only broadcast from 30 main transmitters which cover around 70% of the UK population.

T. Needham: Its not just having an HD receiver, your transmitter also has to be able to transmit that mux.

T. Needham:

Further to that said by MikeB, please will you indicate your full post code so that we can check reception in your locality. That postcode should be for either your location or that of a very nearby public building, such as a post office or shop.

Hi
I wonder if you help. I live in Barry Wales and pick up my Freeview T V signal from the Wenvoe transmitter which is 4 miles away. I have a H D Freeview set top box and can receive all the other H D channels but not
CBS Drama channel 71 what is the problem.

Thanks

J T Webster: CBS drama (71) along with other programmes such as Talking Pictures (81) / Vintage TV (82) are transmitted on a multiplex called COM7, if you are able to receive BBC HD (101) as well as the two latter mentioned and yet not (71), delete everything stored in the tuner by carrying out a retune on your box *after* having first removed the aerial connector, reconnecting the aerial on completion of followed by a second retune to reload all programmes available back into the tuner.

If though BBC HD (101) is receivable by not either of the two mentioned, then for some reason or another you are not receiving COM7, and although being only 4 miles away from the transmitter its noticed that part of the Barry area is indicated as being a reception dead spot, likely to result in a low signal level being received as COM7 is a lower powered transmitter, therefore, in order to be able to assess your reception possibilities a post code (or that of a nearby shop/ post office) will be required.

J T Webster: Hi Jay Tee. a good check would be to see whether you can receive any other channels that are on multiplex 'COM 7'. See if you can get anything on channels numbered: 77 (Rishtey Europe), 78 (5USA+1) and 81 (Talking Pictures TV). If you can, then you ought to be able to get CBS Drama on 71. If you wish and your receiver allows you to, you could do a manual tune just for COM7. To do that, you need to know thatCOM7 is transmitted on UHF channel number 31 from Wenvoe at a frequency of 554 MHz, and then manually tune into that channel. In that manner, you will pick up everything on COM 7 that is available at your location, including, hopefully, CBS Drama. Remember that COM 7 is transmitted at a slightly lower power than the other multiplexes, which could be the reason for your inability to receive all of the channels on that particular multiplex. Richard, Norwich.
