I can't receive channel 95 (Freesports) in Northampton from Sandy Heath despite carrying out a full retune of my HD equipped television. Is it actually on stream yet please ?

Richard Chapman: FreeSports has been broadcasting on Freeview since 31st August. Do you have the main HD channels on 101-105? Do you have the QVC HD channels on 111 and 112?

I discovered Nascar on channel 802 the other night and recorded it only to find a comment that there was either no, or a weak signal.I tried again to record yesterday morning(19th)at 6.30 I think,but the picture was heavily pixilated and unwatchable,but scrolling through at 2 or 4 times the picture was fairly clear and consistent,but of course meaningless to actually watch.I have found various references to channel 95,but this is a chidrens channel.My postcode is TN15 7SB,near Maidstone and I use a Humax FVP 4000 digibox,which is partly dependant on my broadband to operate as I understand it,which is abysmally slow-anything from .005 to 1.6 Mg /minute.How can I get a watchable picture and obtain a quide to what is on.
Your help wold be much appreciated.

JOHN DICKSON: The coverage checker shows that your postcode should have good coverage for COM8 (the multiplex that carries FreeSports) from Bluebell Hill. It also shows that COM8 is also available at a weaker signal from Crystal Palace, so it's possible that your Humax box has tuned into Crystal Palace. Do you get any problems with the QVC HD shopping channels on 111 and 112? Does your box have a manual tuning function in the menu? If you select FreeSports and go to manual tuning, it should show you which UHF channel/frequency it is being found on.

Channels 95-99 were previously used as an overspill section when the children's channel section became full, however a number of channels (including news, children's, streamed & adult sections) were moved to new numbers a couple of months ago. Carrying out a full retune should correct this and update all the channels that have changed to their new numbers (make a note of any planned recordings as they may need to be reprogrammed after retuning).

Thanks to StevenOnln1 ,sorry for delay,don't turn on every day! Actually I have two Humax's, also an older HDR Fox12,which WAS tuned to 95,so tuned manually to 95 on new Humax, but still signal too weak to show anything but that message, but lo- and- behold the old box works well, just a very occaisional split- second blip . The old box has a few films and music in it's various folders, which you cannot do on the new one, so it is normally turned off at mains as both remotes interfere with each other(not necsessarily the same functions!)So I can actually get the NASCAR now,but have to remember to turn it on at the mains the evening before it broadcast at some unnatural hour,but it will not accept "series" record on the guide.All very odd-particularly the fact that the newer box appears to need a stronger signal to work than the older one.Any ideas or comments welcome,but I believe that you are right that the Bluebell Hill tower is ours ,much nearer than CrystalPalace and no hills in the way.Look forward to hearing from you anyway ,John

John Dickson: Have you checked which UHF channel you're receiving Freesports on the box with weak signal? Most receivers have a manual tuning option in the menu. COM8 from Bluebell Hill is on UHF C34 whereas Crystal Palace is on C35.

Thanks again for your help.i have checked the signals and both show signal from c34.the New humax which won't show 95 gives a strngth of 76%and quality of 100%.only a few percent down from bbc1 at 86% and 100%.the old box which does work showed figures of 51% and 100% but works just fine on channel 95.this all seems rather odd to say the least.incidently are you connected with Freeview 95 or whatever or just a helpfull member of public?

either way thanks for your help and interest,look forward to hearing from you again,john

John Dickson: No one on this website has any connection with any broadcaster. With those figures you should be able to carry out a manual tune on C34 on the box that isn't currently receiving Freesports and it should add the channel (along with any other channels from COM8 that may be missing).

Hello again,you must be getting a bit tired of this,but i have done a tune again on the newer humax that will not show 95,but does indicate c34(bluebell hill) as you said,but it still doesn't show anything but an occaisional frozen image if it gets past the weak signal message which is normally all you get . as a matter of interest i set the TV itself to the antenna input,which hasn't been used for two or three years i would guess, and 95 showed up as a childrens channel,so i retuned it on auto in about 5 minutes and it now shows 95 freesport perfectly well, allthough the picture quality like all the channels is marginally worse.
i remain puzzled,but indebted to you for your patience and help.john
