Digital switch-over problems | Switchovers
Thursday 8 March 2012 10:54AM

We had 1st phase switchover yesterday 7th March(Southampton, SO51 6JY). After retuning we can get all channels, but the TV has become very slow in some functions. In particular, when changing channels it sometimes takes several seconds before the programme changes after pressing the remote button, and occasionally it locks up and won't change at all. Need to switch off to reset. Teletext is almost un-useable because it is so slow to respond. Again, it sometimes appears to freeze, displaying "loading" and we need to switch off to recover. I have tried re-tuning a couple of times, but it makes no difference. TV is a Philips 26PF5520/10 digital LCD, and it was fine prior to switchover.
