Les Nicol: Re: jim mccormack's posting. Yes, I think you could well be correct regarding what was actually meant when taking the area involved into consideration, and as you say an appropriate post code being the key to this, the procedure for entering this being mentioned on page 26 / section 3 of the 7800's user manual.

According to KingofSat and Lyngsat, STV HD West has left 10936V.

Now this afternoon I am getting zero quality reading on this frequency and no sign of ITV-1 HD Granada either.

Can somebody please confirm that ITV-1 HD Granada has now left 10936V and if so, to which frequency has it moved?

Getting several complaints in Petersfield, Hampshire, that people have 'lost' ITV. Why is this?

Kat: Because two multiplexes changed channel in the early hours of Wednesday. This means that a retune is required.

I live at Christchurch, Dorset on the south coast. I receive tv signals from Rowridge and on freeview ITV1 get the local news and adverts from the south, which is correct. On freeview ITV1 HD however, I get local news and adverts from the south-east (Kent). Why is this?

Mike Smith: Because there are only a handful of ITV1 HD regions. This is so as to not need equipment to produce HD feeds for each region or sub-region.

I'm not familiar with whether the regions that do have HD feeds produce their local news in HD.

Those regions that don't have counterpart HD feeds (such as ITV Meridian Southampton) we assume don't produce content in HD. Therefore if ITV were to change to having different regional feeds there would be no variance in the HD content available; local news would still be in standard definition.

BBC One HD does not broadcast regional news due to the same cost reasons.
