James: Good Morning, James. I'm sorry that I'm replying so late - an hour or so after your post! Dave is on channel 12 on Freeview. I'm currently watching Top Gear: Burma Special. Transmitter Engineering has reported 'possible interruptions' on the Moss Bank St Helens transmitter, so if that's your local transmitter, it would explain the reason for your inability to receive Dave at the present moment. Hope this helps - Richard, Norwich.

James: Dave is not broadcast from the Moss Bank transmitter as it only covers a small number of homes and therefore only provides a basic service of channels from the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5. If you provide a postcode you'll get a prediction of which transmitters should be available to you and whether any of the carry the commercial multiplex which Dave is broadcast on.
