From Wikipedia: For the indie rock band, see The Dramas. The enactment of drama in theatre, performed by actors on a stage before an audience, presupposes collaborative modes of production and a collective form of reception. The structure of dramatic texts, unlike other forms of literature, is directly influenced by this collaborative production and collective reception.2 The early modern tragedy Hamlet 1601 by Shakespeare and the classical Athenian tragedy Oedipus the King c. - en.wikipedia.org en.wikipedia.org link icon read more about Drama on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

D. Noel: Try swapping the dish inputs over on your boxes and check the problem has transferred over to the Humax, if it has, then its either caused by water ingress in the LNB's "F" connector, or if inspection of same checks out OK, a defective port on the LNB.

That said is on the assumption that you have tried carrying out a rescan on your Goodmans?.

Bernadette O'Keeffe: Gold was a programme channel on the now defunct Top up TV box system, are you using this? However, irrespective of what you are using try carrying out a manufacturers reset followed by a retune.

My wife and I enjoy watching good drama on the Drama Channel using Freeview. Unfortunately the picture often pixeates and in unwatchable. We are unable to watch it on Freesat although I note that it is available on 158.

We live in a small viilage on the Cambridgeshire fens. There are tall trees close roughly in line with the signal from Sandy. This is why we have both Freeview and Freesat.

Please help before the season of Judge John Deed ends.

Mac: You seem to have already identified the tall trees as the cause of the problem. What is preventing you using Freesat to watch?

Hi Steven

Channel 158 does not appear automatically when browsing channels on freesat. I am not sure how to reboot the Bush freesat box.

Mac: Reboot the box by putting it in standby then switch the power off wait a minute or so then turn it on again, which should cause it to rescan and update its channel list.
