Re: jill kitchker 24 January
I too have the same problem. I use Freeview. My system has worked well but in the past week I've tried to 'turn-on' teletext on Sky channels 11 and 44. I get a message to say that I should switch to channel 108 to get teletext on Sky. When channel 108 appears it tells me that Channel 108 has changed frequency and I should re-scan. I do this and I still get the same results ... no text on Sky channels

Thanks Briantist, I've tried this previously though on your advice I've tried it again.
I am still unable to get any Sky text.
When I go to Channel 108 It tells me that frequencies have been changed and I need to re-scan.
Are you able to verify that Channel 108 gives you text on your reciever?
Thanks
Fred

Thanks again for your response.
I guess I'll just have to keep trying. Is it possible that it's a problem at the transmitter(Mendip)? Signal stength at my address? .... although I appear to get everything else satisfactorily.

Fred: Is everything else on Multiplex COM6(ARQB) OK for you, such as Yesterday, Film4, 4Music and so on?

Fred: That certainly is very strange. Do the other text services work, like the BBC Red Button?
