Have Lost PBS 94, Ch35 586.0 MHz MENDIP Transmitter On My BTYouview Box Humax DTR T2100, but still get it on my Panasonic 4K TV which is fed by its aerial feed from the throughput of the BT Youview Box
I have retuned numerious times with and without aerial and factory reset the Youview box and still will not get PBS 94. Yet the same youview aerial cable that feeds the TV (which is after the Youview box!!) where I continue to get PBS94 without any problems.
Any advice why I cant get PBS94 on my Youviewbox but can using the same input cable to my TV that does get PBS94 ??

I now know the answer....as from last Monday 18th Feb 2019, FREVIEW have moved PBS from Prog 94 to Prog 91 without it appears spreading that info around. It changes on a Freeview Programme Update, hence the answer to why my Youview device was on 91 and my non updated TV was still on 94 !!

As with other freeview viewers, channel 94 (PBS America) has disappeared. However, although I have read that it is now on channel 91, I still cannot get it as this channel is empty.
What do you suggest? I do have an Amazon fire stick and have tried to get PBS America, without luck. Is this channel now only available on Sky/Virgin?
Regards

carole stevenson: If you had PBS America before the start of this week then retuning should restore it to your channel list on LCN 91. This has nothing to do with your Amazon Fire Stick and does not require a Sky or Virgin subscription.

I have received PBS America for some time now from the Winterhill Transmitter here in Bolton on channel 94, but today no channel 94. I have tried re tuning my TV bit still no PBS?

Colin Davies: Are you still receiving BBC Four HD on 106? If you are then you should find PBS America on 91 (it moved at the beginning of last week).

Unfortunately, PBS America and Freesport are both unavailable to me (using Caldbeck) since the move to Channel 91 although the other channels on COM8 are there.
Any explanation?

Regards,

David Perkin.

My first attempt at this comment did not appear, for no known reason.
PBS America and Freesport are not available to me (receiving from Caldbeck) since the retune, although the other COM8 Channels are present.

Anyone got any idea why?

Regards,


David Perkin

David Perkin: Make a note of any planned recordings, then do a full retune with the aerial unplugged which should clear your channel list. Then reconnect the aerial and retune again, which should restore all of your channels on the correct numbers with fresh tuning data.

I live in the EH3 5LL postcode area and am unable to receive channel 91 (PBS) which I would really love to watch. Mine seems to go from 87 to 100 with the channels in between missing. Please help.
Thanks
