Yesterday (24th Aug 2015), I noticed my YouView box was displaying ITV Wales HD on 103, but the 'regional' news on it was still for the Central area. However just now, I noticed that the 'regional' news was for the ITV Wales area, so it seems that there is now an ITV Wales HD variant!

I'm getting it from the Llanddona transmitter, btw!

We live in Wimborne, Dorset.
Our Meridian content seems to cover the East Meridian region only and not the West Meridian, this normally only effects the local news, which as you can, is not local to us.
Have tried re-tuning, but it does not seem to make any difference and continues to pick up the East Meridian news.
Are Meridian only transmitting the Eastern area news, as I suspect, or is there a solution to this problem.
As far as I can ascertain we are receiving our signal from the I.O.W transmitter, if that is the case then Meridian must be at fault.

B.D.Lowe: Hi, BD Lowe. Firstly, I need to inform you that ITV HD is not fully regionalised on Freeview HD yet, so Freeview viewers find that they can't necessarily watch the news for their 'sub-region' on ITVHD, whereas they can on SD. As far as HD is concerned, you will find you are part of a very large 'macro' region, called 'South' which sends Meridian News (East version) to anyone watching ITV HD from Dorset right up to Cromer in Norfolk, because the Anglia region has not gone on to Freeview HD yet, just as Meridian West hasn't either. So you are indeed correct to say that Meridian is only proving its Eastern area news in HD, so there's nothing you can do until it is thought that it is commercially viable to provide Meridian West news in HD on Freeview. All we can do is to continue to watch the 'correct' news sub-region by viewing it in standard definition Freeview, or switch from Freeview to Freesat, where more HD regions are provided for! If we don't want the expense of switching to Freesat, we just have to wait until ITV News HD 'in our region' is commercially viable for us. Hope this helps, Richard, Norwich, Sunday 12th. June, 9:30 p.m.

They are no plans announced for such a change as yet. You should ask Arqiva directly by contacting them via their website.

Channel 5HD goes off and says no signal then comes back on. I checked the TV signal on settings it said 100% good signal. What is happening I live in Bridgwater Somerset.

Grahame Alan Baker: If you're seeing 100% signal strength then it's likely that your TV's tuner is being overloaded with too much signal. Try an attenuator to reduce the signal strength (you should be aiming for 70%-85%).
