Since the digital switchover, or very shortly afterwards, we have had the following problem:
Whilst we can receive freeview tv perfectly ( Sony Bravia digital), we keep losing all the BBC channels through the HDD recorder (also Sony digital). When we do a re-scan, the channels come back , but disappear again quickly. The aerial is on the roof, and connection from tv to HDD recorder is via an HDMI cable.
Any suggestions please?

Stephanie Marney: Is there a reason you cannot use the Crystal Palace transmitter? I have both Sony tv and Sony recorder (I live in Colindale), and the only problem I have is that I can't receive the HD channels on the recorder, but the tv it is fine.

Stephanie Marney:
Thanks for the advice.
However, we might be using the Crystal Palace transmitter, but since all the tuning is done automatically, how would I tell?
If tuning manually is the solution, where do I find the option to use Crystal Palace please?
