Tommy Divers: Are both TVs connected to the same aerial? Does your kitchen TV receive HD channels on 101-115?

Tommy Divers: In that case your TV most likely doesn't have a DVB-T2 tuner which is needed to receive HD channels on Freeview. The HD badge is probably indicating that the screen can display a HD picture (either HD Ready or Full HD) rather than Freeview HD (which indicates that it has the correct tuner for HD channels on Freeview). Although Talking Pictures isn't broadcast in HD, it is carried on a HD multiplex (COM7) and you therefore need a TV capable of receiving HD channels to view it. You can easily upgrade your kitchen TV with a Freeview HD set top box such as the Manhattan HD-T2 for around ?40 (see link below).

g1Hi I have a Sony Bravia KDL-32EX403 which can receive Freeview HD. I can receive signal from Rowridge if I select South region when doing autotune. However Channel 81 (Talking Pictures) is unavailable, as are other Com 7 channels. Any ideas on a remedy gratefully received.

Jason T:

We need a full post code for you location so that we can determine the reception conditions there and possibly see if there are alternatives.

MikeB: I live in Braunton, North Devon, and despite retuning I cannot receive channel 81 without either breaking up or a blank black screen. just occasionally can I get a complete picture. Such a shame, as I would love to watch it much more than I can do...Very frustrating..

Francis: Whats your postcode, and are you tuned to the welsh transmitter? If you are, then you should get it if you have an HD tuner. But a postcode would be a help.
