Dave Sanders: On my Humax PVR-9200T, the Audio Description appears as a separate soundtrack. You have to press the Soundtracks button and select the other option. It seems to remember this setting for each channel.

Boxes that properly support Audio Description have an 'AD' button on the remote. If yours does, just press that to turn it off.

dave sanders: The channels you are missing would be purely commercial enterprises and not connected in any way to the licence fee, and with these commercial interests not being willing to contribute towards the running costs involved of any additional multiplexes, basically as they do not consider that the returns expected from the smaller area's covered by the transmitter would be sufficient enough to justify the running costs involved.

This is just really the same type of thing as a larger department store chain not being willing to open a branch in a smaller town, i.e: simply because the financial returns expected would not make it a viable proposition.
