I had been at a loss to explain why I had lost all BBC channels on my TV. Now, it is starting to make sense.

However, how do I fix this?

If I plug my aerial directly into the TV I get the BBC channels. If I watch it through the Freeview box and switch from the "Scart" (Freeview box) setting back to the TV itself there are no BBC channels.

I like to watch most of my TV on the "television" setting as the picture is much better and only wish to use the Freeview box to record programmes and watch them back.

What can be done?

Thanks for your advice, Dave and Mike.

I have rang at800 and they were very helpful. Going to try a few things at home. The fact my whole system was working fine until 4G moved into the area suggests to me that it is the cause of my problem but will try some more retuning and changing of Scart leads etc.

By the way, Mike, my freeview box is Hitachi going into a Bush TV.

Hi jb38

I switch between the Hitachi set-top box and TV via the "source" button on the TV's remote control, leaving the set-top box running in the background, so to speak.

Last night I changed the Scart and Manual-tuned the Hitachi to ch60, which it states is at a level of "very good".

I have to state that this was never a problem until mid April, which seems to mysteriously co-incide with the 4G transmitter on Enterprise Point a few hundred yards from my house.

The helpline last night told me mid-April, I think, though to be honest I've been so hectic I can't really remember when the channels cut out. It could only be a fortnight, just seems a lot longer. The main annoyance is that I'm a huge BBC fan and those are the main channels I watch. Can't be doing with all those adverts elsewhere.
