Like Paul, since the changes to Winter Hill cannot get channels on either of the two multiplexes that have moved- i.e. BBC and the one with Pick TV, Sky News etc etc. No problem with Marks and Spencer branded freeview box upstairs but 2007 Philips 37 PFL7662 TV set holds the signal for about 2 minutes after retuning with perfect picture- then it just goes and the "No signal" message appears. The set only allows manual tuning by frequency not channel numbers.

David, I am no expert but our 2007 Philips 37PFL7662 has been unable to store the BBC and Arqiva channels (Sky News, Pick TV etc) that have been moved. It does tune in to them when you "reinstall all services" and has a perfect picture but after 2 minutes it just goes and a "No signal" message appears. I spoke to Digital UK (use one of the numbers on SayNoto0870 rather than 0845) and they said they had received many enquiries of a similar nature from Philips TV owners. Philips claimed that the TV tuner was not designed for the current Freeview signal and had trouble storing the channels where the BBC and other services have moved to. Their advice- get a box to plug in to the TV. Upstairs box is fine - so signal must be OK. Transmitter Winter Hill Postcode Manchester M22. Seems like the issue is affecting more modern Philips TVs as well?
