Hi, I was wondering if i could get some advice.

Up until recently i have been able to recieve rte2 hd, tv3 and the other channels broadcast on Saorview viamy freeview HD box a humax fox d2. I have 2 freeview HD boxs and also a tv with a Soarview tuner inbuilt. Getting the signal from the black mountain tuner i think.

I had rescanned the boxs and now i have lost all the soarview channels and i cannot appear to get these back. I can see that in parellel the channels are lost on the boxs but not in the tv so i think this rules out an issue with the ariel??

Have these channels stopped being broadcast on freeview hd. Or have i a problem with my ariel strength. This problem has

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Dave sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

My location is bt28. Seems to have been a good few problems reported about this area. Reception is usually ok during the day but is very flaky in evening.

I am looking for rte channels in the 800s.When doing a scan this is on channel 52 frequency 7220000. Transmission DVB-T on bandwidth 8mhz. I have turned off the antenna power as recommended above. Any ideas why this would be good on soar view tv in kitchen but not on freeview in living room off the same ariel? Can be perfect at times but no picture at all other times. Thanks for the advice.
