MikeP, thank you for your reply, I have had all connections removed and refitted, still no BBC channels. sometimes when we first switch on we get approx. 4 to 5 minutes before the picture breaks up and we get messages, CHANNEL IS SCRAMBLED AND NOT AVAILABLE, NO PROGRAMMES ARE CURRENTLY BEING BROADCAST ON THIS CHANNEL. All other channels are OK, ITV. etc. We are at a loss as to what to do. We have now been without BBC 1 BBC 2 BBC 4 etc, since Sunday 20th. Any suggestions at all ?
Thank you.

Hi, under SETTINGS signal detection channel 42 Strength and quality is only 10 per cent, we are now getting problems with all channels.
Ch42 642000kHz.8 k, 1/32 is what is on screen under settings.
I switched to the freeview television and tried to update the channels, only 13 were listed and no BBC channels were found. We now have no channels at all, what's going on, it is so frustrating. Thanks for trying to help I think we need an engineer ?

G. tarr: If you're only getting 10% signal strength then you have a fault somewhere. Getting someone out to investigate sounds like a sensible idea.
