Re: jill kitchker 24 January
I too have the same problem. I use Freeview. My system has worked well but in the past week I've tried to 'turn-on' teletext on Sky channels 11 and 44. I get a message to say that I should switch to channel 108 to get teletext on Sky. When channel 108 appears it tells me that Channel 108 has changed frequency and I should re-scan. I do this and I still get the same results ... no text on Sky channels

Thanks Briantist, I've tried this previously though on your advice I've tried it again.
I am still unable to get any Sky text.
When I go to Channel 108 It tells me that frequencies have been changed and I need to re-scan.
Are you able to verify that Channel 108 gives you text on your reciever?
Thanks
Fred

Thanks again for your response.
I guess I'll just have to keep trying. Is it possible that it's a problem at the transmitter(Mendip)? Signal stength at my address? .... although I appear to get everything else satisfactorily.

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.

Hi Briantist
I've just done a check using your predictor. My postcode is BS37 4HD. I was surprised that the map produced defaults to the Ridge hill transmitter when it 'appears' that my strongest signal is from Mendip AND that is where I am aligned to. Just a comment. If that's the way it works, OK! Thanks.

Well! maybe, but M .. Mendip comes before R.. Ridge Hill in my alphabet. Hey-Ho, next question ?? But why worry?
