D. A. Brown:

I know this reply is somewhat "late" but might still be useful.
Did you mean lose COMs 7&8 from the Humax PVR or from a TV set it's plugged into?

If the latter then maybe it's because the PVR has an RF pass-through that powers down in standby and because those COMs maybe transmitted at lower power than the others, there's not quite enough breakthrough of their signal whereas the others are strong enough for your set still to function OK.

If it's the PVR itself then maybe a full retune may help, first retune automatically with the aerial unplugged to clear all existing stored data, then do a manual tune for each UHF channel used by your transmitter.

Chris.SE:
Hi all, just a quick update as i have been away for a week.
All of the com 7 and com 8 channels are not been received on any tv or set top box in the home. I own a Humax pvr, a Samsung smart tv, and an LG tv, all of these are now not receiving any com 7 or com 8 channels. I have retuned and also tried manual retunes on all devices but no luck.
I have checked and double checked my outdoor aerial & cabling.
No change.

I'm on the Oxford transmitter and I am having similar problems with Coms 7 & 8. I appear to have reception during the day until 8pm when I lose both of them

We are receiving zero reception from our roof aerial at EX312DY, our son is also having the same problem at EX312DQ . How do we find out how to get over the problem? Thank you

D. Madden: The Huntshaw Cross transmitter has changed frequencies overnight, so you will need to retune. If you find that you still have channels missing after retuning, you should contact the Freeview Advice Line (see link below) who can arrange for a replacement wideband aerial to be fitted, free of charge if you don't have satellite or cable.

A Lloyd:

Unfortunately the site owner has not been able as yet to update all the information. Visit http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/channels/channel_listings should give an up-to-date list which you can order by LCN, Mux etc by clicking on the heading of the column.

Stephen:

If this occurs at exactly the same time each day then it could be caused by interference from something controlled by a timer eg. central heating, discharge lighting etc. Do your neighbours get a similkar issue? or see below.

NasS: & Shopps:

As mentioned elsewhere COMs 7&8 are now SFNs (Single frequency Networks) on UHF 55&56 and if you aren't close enough to your particular transmitter, then you may get interference from other transmitters which may be constant or vary with weather system changes and prevent and reception of the those muxes.

The Channel list for Crystal Palace needs updating - CH 30 carries BBC1 HD (and others) from Crystal Palace but your list has no mention of Ch 30.
