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

Yes, I don't appear to have any other problems.
I did, up until about two weeks ago, get Text on Sky channels 11, 82. When this service 'ceased' I got the message to tune to Channel 108 which I did where I get a message that Channel 108 frequency has changed and I should re-scan.
I've tried this several times but still get the same message.

P.S. I have two set-up's in my home. One with a built in tuner and another with separate digi-box. The same 'fault' is on both installations.

Yes .... and I've just done it again with the same result. No Sky text ... just a message that I need to re-scan.

I am having the same problem as Fred with Sky text from Mendip.
Text is not available on any Sky channels, just an on screen notice to go to Channel 108.
I have two different TVs on seperate aerials.
Channel 108 is not recognised after re-tune by either of them.
I have contacted Digital UK who couldn't help, can you suggest anyone who can?
