Hi I live in Telford, Shropshire postcode TF1 1RR and I am currently tuned to the Wrekin Relay Station. I can also tune to Sutton Hill as I have an aerial rotator. My question is that sometimes the resolution on my Humax PVR9200T Freeview tuner is poor even though when I check the signal strength and quality all seems ok. If I connect my TV direct to the aerial the TV picture is fine (I have a Sony Bravia with integtral DVB tuner). The Freeview problem is usually cured by a cold reboot effected by unplugging everything for about 1 minute and then reconnecting. Can you tell me what the problem may be please? Humax were due to roll out an over air update for my tuner between 22nd and 24th of December 2010 but that hasn't occurred yet. I've contacted them to find out what's happening.

Hi Brian,

I'm tuned to the Wrekin transmitter via my Freeview Humax PVR9200T and it's working fine at the moment. It says on your link that mine is one of the boxes that has problems receiving dual 2k and 8k mode. And that the workaround is to add 8k manually. Could you explain how I do this please and whether I need to bother seeing as I'm getting over 80 TV and 24 radio channels fine at the moment? I live within sight (1 mile away at most) of the transmitter. FYI I have an aerial rotator and so can tune in to Sutton Hill. Also I note that the signal strength display shows 100% Quality and best of 74% Strength on all channels. Will the strength improve after the final freqency sort out on 28th Sept? Despite overall good reception, I still get "No or Bad Siganl" on some channels. Is there any way to sort this now or would I have to wait till 28 Sept?

Well done on all your good work Brian and I hope all is ok with you
