Sudbury Arqiva multiplex B changes 16 November - retune require
Tuesday 22 November 2011 8:54AM

I'm in Chelmsford, CM2 postcode, and receiving from Sudbury. I still receive Film4 and ITV4 after the change on 16th November, albeit with occasional picture break-up and glitches.
However, I've recently discovered that my Bush 250GB freeview recorder will no longer set a timer for a programme on Film4 by selecting from the EPG. I find the programme on the EPG, hit the record button and get a 'Please Wait' message, but nothing happens. The programme is not highlighted in red and does not appear in the Timers list. I've had similar trouble with programmes on ITV4, 5* and 5 USA although the problem seems more intermittant with these channels. With Film4, it doesn't appear to work for any programme.
Could this be related to all the problems with the Sudbury C63, given that it involves the same channels? I've tried doing another first time installation, but the problem is still there. Other channels such as all BBC, ITV1, Ch4, Ch5, E4, More4 etc. are fine, so I'm inclined to think there is a problem with the broadcast EPG rather than my box. Also, I am able to set instant, one-touch recording on Film4 and set a timer manually (by inputting channel and start and end times).
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
