Kenneth: last night we lost most channels except Pick TV, drama and some shopping channels. This am BBC and quite a few others back but not ITV or channel 4 or strangely Pick TV amongst others. Think we are on Hastings transmitter but no problems or maintenance reported. Any ideas?

Dave Lindsay: thanks promptness. Retuning (for umpteenth time) on built in tuner noticed nothing up from ch28 which I think should carry some channels? We have loft aerial with amp feeding two TVs but if some channels OK then would guess that our hardware OK. Is that a fair assumption?

Dave Lindsay: Managed to get a connector in order to bypass amp. The TV downloaded all channels except HD ones and including a load of French ones! (Ch802-807) Reconnect via amp and weaker channels like them don't play so looks like amp on the blink. Guessing signal needs boost to get HD channels although most signals being received are strong except for some like Film4 +1. So rather than call someone out I'll put in a new amp myself. Thanks for help unless you think my thinking wrong about HD needing amp. Regards.

And today switched on tv, it had message that new channels available and hey presto everything back to normal with HD channels and no French ones. COuld it have been the weather? Didn't seem extreme in any way. Fingers crossed all stays as is. Homes under the hammer in HD. Joy, maybe!!

Interesting, thanks. Never happened before though. Tonight it all went pear shaped again from around 5pm. Watched some recorded stuff then checked a few minutes ago and its all back to normal. It is weird. Thanks again to you guys for your invaluable input. Now if someone can just tell me how to enable Flash on my TV,s built in web browser......
