Hello
I just bought a new Samsung HD TV for the upstairs bedroom. It auto-tuned ok but after switching if off for a few hours, it seems to lose ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and a few others. I have to auto-retune to get them all get back again.

I use a small portable antenna which used to be in daughter's room and she had no problem with her LG TV.

I have tested on the main TV downstairs and there was no problem either.

Why do I lose only those channels and how do I about it without having to ask an engineer to come and connect us to the main aerial (too expensive for us I fear).

thank you for any help/advice.

SophieD: This has nothing to do with the aerial.

What you describe is usually caused by the tuning memory being exceeded. The broadcast channel that is picked up last is forgotten, and in this case ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 etc are on the highest channel (and are therefore picked up last during the scan).

The memory is exceeded because the set picks up signals from other transmitters before the one you want. If you run the scan with the aerial unplugged for the first 30% this will avoid picking up some of the lower channels.

If this doesn't work then you could manual tune.

mrs evans: Do you have a Top Up TV box? If so, then switch from 14 day EPG (electronic programme guide) to 8 day EPG.

HI
We have a roof aerial which is pointed towards the Tacolneston transmitter. Reception is restricted by a row of trees near our house and pixilation is frequent in poor conditions. Since last week we have no reception at all and re-tuning produces no programmes. I not the transmitter is being worked on. Does that mean a weaker signal than normal? When will normal service be resumed?

Hi Guys. There seems to be a few problems with reception from the parkend and lydbrook relays but there aren't any works being carried out. The problem has even made the local press! Any ideas?
