Last week all the HD channels stopped working. A message has come up saying weak or no signal. Do you know why this has happened ? all other channels are fine.

Why does the analogue have to be switched off?
Analogue is far superior to digital which keeps breaking up.
I don't know anyone who likes digital.
Why oh why can't we have a choice.
Who gets the money that will be made by selling our airways?

Alan Ruel: Digital does not "keep breaking up" - if you have such a problem you should fix it, rather than blaming "digital".

There are about 26 million homes in the UK using the digital TV channels and every report ever done shows they love the choice and quality.
