maybe it is your Sony freeview box that is causing the problem...if it is the vtx-d500 it is not going to work....you need to replace it with a new model....

Why am I not getting HD channels 50-55 from Hannington on a Full HD set?

B Brown: Without giving the model number, I cannot answer the question. However, "Full HD" simply means that it is 1080p and does not give any qualification being able to receive Freeview HD signals over the air.

B Brown:

Furthe to Dave Lindsay's response, go to your your TV's manual tuning option, and see if the TV is 'aware' of broadcast channel 39 (the channel Hannington uses for HD broadcasts).
If that channel is not available, then your TV does not have a Freeview HD tuner (otherwise known as 'DVB-T2').

Can anyone confirm that this is indeed the end of this saga with Hannington/Crystal Palace and thet the signals are now at full strength and no more retuning will be necessary?

Thanks.

Malcolm H: Confirming Dave Lindsay's comments.
I live on the eastern side of Crowthorne, right on the edge of the Hannington reception area. Using an XB16B aerial and all new cabling (both from the supplier mentioned by Dave Lindsay), I now receive all Freeview channels perfectly.
Reception of ArqA & ArqB muxes was pretty dire prior to 18th April (as was SDN prior to 4th April).
So a new/repositioned arial MAY help.
