Is it too late for someone at Channel 5 to sort out the lip synch problems with The Last Samurai please?

Mike Mitchell: You can usually clear synch issues by changing to another channel for a few seconds and tuning back.

Jude Fisher: What is the make and model of your receiver?

Some have difficulty receiving the pre-switchover and post-switchover signals at the same time (which is what you have in the two weeks in between).

An idea of your location and transmitter may be useful so that we can check on predicted coverage. Your post code or that of a nearby property such as a shop may be useful.

A few days ago I asked why I ceased to get a picture on Channel 5 from about 7 pm every day.
If you do not wish to respond because I live in Germany, an acknowledgement of my e-mail would be appreciated.

Sorry if my e-mail sounded rude. I now realise that my original did not get sent.
I would still like advice please.
During the day I get a good reception on Channel 5, 5USA and 5*. However from about 7 pm there is no reception at all. Is there an explanation for this?
