My old TV a Grundig has a scart connection but only 9 channels! When connecting a freeview recorder to it all in the correct way - nothing happens! Is that because It does not have a frequency offered by channel 28 and so do I need a new TV any help/advice would be appreciated.

Hugh: What's your full postcode?

I'm guessing that you're on a relay transmitter that started switchover today. So far, only the BBC multiplex - which does only carry 9 TV channels - has been switched on. The STV, ITV, C4 and C5 services will start in two weeks at the second stage, when analogue STV and C4 are switched off.

If you want to use a Freeview recorder as well, the aerial cable should go to the recorder first, then link the RF out connector on the recorder to the TV's aerial socket. You should still link the recorder to the TV using a SCART cable, because very few Freeview boxes add their output to the RF cable, and in any case the picture quality is better.

We are in Seaford East Sussex and getting poor Sky RF2 output on channel 68. Which is best channel for sky rf out in this locale? I am guessing 61 36 38? Any ideas?

Just realised that I've lost channel 28 (multiplex ArqB) since switchover on Tv card in PC (NOVA T 500) but not on anything else. Showing 72% signal, no more or less than other multiplexes, but just won't lock. Any suggestions?

AM: If you are not capable of receiving HD transmissions then this possible reason cannot be 100% verified, but Ch28 has a negative offset on its frequency and some devices cannot cope properly with that as the signal is in effect off-tune, there might not be a cure for that on the device you are using but am unable to check myself at this present time.

The only reason I mentioned HD is that also has a negative offset, the others do not.

I live in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire but my Samsung TV receives a Freeview signal from Yorkshire TV. I would like to watch Central ITV from the Waltham transmitter, which can also be received in this area but am not sure of the re-tuning process. Also, when you have settled on an ITV station, how can you tell which one it is? Pressing the Info button brings up programme information and other things - but doesn't tell you what ITV company you are watching! (ie Yorkshire, Central, Meridian - or what?)As I would like to receive Central for its local news output and as at most other times of the day programmes are the same from region-to-region, how can I tell whether my re-tune has been successful?

Dianne: Samsung makes a variety of different models and so its essential to know which model you are referring to, "plus" either your post code or one from nearby (a shop etc) as the signal levels from Waltham or any of the other stations that you can receive from cannot be assessed without this info.
