Well done guy's. Horror Channel now the singularly most watched station in our house of seven aged
20 to 55. What chances of one night albeit late maybe once week perhaps of foreign horror (No! Not American. But Spanish, Korean, etc..) old Tartan or the like even if tad obscure ones only to hand.
Oh And!
'The Power of Christ Compels You' to sort out the subtitles

I've just retuned my goodmans freeview recorder and I have lost the horror channel (70). It goes from channel 68 to 72. I've tried to retune it 4 times but it's still missing. How can I get my favourite channel back?

Krenton: Check your signal strength, and check on the transmitter you should be on as to what mux it is. If you can't find anything from that whole mux, and you've low signal strenght, you've got a problem with your aerial syste. Hopefully something as simple as a dodgy lead from the back of the recorder to the wall.

BTW - you PVR shouldn't need a retune - it will pick up new stations automatically.

Hi there
For some reason on both my freeview boxes there is nothing showing
On the TV guide from next Friday onwards, just says no information available
Why is this? I am getting worried as watch the 4400 every night at 8pm.

Karen: Is this for just one channel or for every channel? If it's just one channel, it may just be that the broadcaster hasn't confirmed their schedule for next weekend yet.
