Film 4
Thursday 13 March 2014 2:27PM

"Film4 missing". ***Solved*** (for me...)

Hitachi TV (L24DG07U) - couldn't find Film4
Bush BU11FVRSD32/X Freeview+ recorder - couldn't find Film4
Digihome DVB915 Freeview box - Film4 found OK

I couldn't get Film4 since some time last year. Film4+1 was OK. The problem for me seems to be the Ridge Hill transmitter which broadcasts PSB2 on channel 25 _and_ channel 29. Channel 29 carries ITV1 and Film4 only. So when I scanned for channels, channel 25 settings were overwritten by channel 29 settings. (I don't know why the channel 29 version didn't work.)

The solution: scan for channels (probably best to scan as if for the first time), and then UNPLUG the aerial lead as the TV or digibox starts to scan channel 29. On the Hitachi TV this was indicated on screen. On the Bush recorder I had to work it out by guesswork (after 115 channels were found).

Hope this helps someone.
