Bilsdale (North Yorkshire, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Friday 21 September 2012 3:26PM

During the last week or so, I have been helping some elderly friends to re-tune their equipment - a mix of built-in TV and set-top boxes and have a problem with one installation. I did a 'first time installation' procedure and all channels except BBC2 were present. I repeated the procedure twice, but the result was just the same - no BBC2.
The equipment is a set top box located in Richmond North Yorks - Post code DL10 7DQ and the aerial is chimney mounted.
Do you think the situation is liable to be resolved after the 26th September?

Hi Dave,
Thanks for your reply
I am 100% sure that I am not trying to view the Analogue signal, since when I change channels using the remote control, there is always a pop-up window showing DTV and the selected channel, but BBC2 is missing from the channel list. I do realise that BBC2 is no longer available on Analogue.....

I seem to remember reading somewhere, that some early 'Digiboxes' had problems resolving particular channels ?? I'm not sure of the Make/Model of the unit in question and will not be able to find out until mid next week - friends are away at present....

Further thought to my comments above - I could select other 'Free-to-Air' channels such as ITV2, ITV3, Dave, Pick TV etc. which would confirm that I was viewing Digital TV....
