I have a fully integrated Freeview and Freesat TV and a Freesat satellite dish.I can receive a number of HD channels, BBC and ITV. However I cannot get Channel 4HD. When I try by using channel No. 52 I am told on screen that it is an invalid DVD number. Does anyone have any advice please?

TonyH: Channel 4HD is not available in Wales, you get Cullin (S4C HD) instead.

If you have Freesat HD, you will be getting Channel 4 HD on that service in April. See Channel 4 HD to start on Freesat | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice .

Mark Aberfan Aerials: 2012, I think. That's when they get another shot at a Freeview HD slot.

Having said that, Richard Desmond and Rupert don't get on that well, I would imagine when he finds out about Fiver (soon 5*) and Five USA not being on Freesat he might do something about it.

They could do with the viewers.

Hi Brian,

Thanks for the info, If Richard Desmond was to move all of his output to Freesat he would not only gain a bigger audiance & the advertising to go with it, his public profile would be enhanced which has to be good for business. We've seen the hatred of murdoch increase over the channel one closure, it would be nice if the reverse was true for those who bring freesat extra channels. Richard Desmond has taken a lot of negative press ever since his name was linked to five (mainly from rival press) but as far as i can see he has done no harm, whoever took over loss making five would have to of cut costs.

Briantist: 4HD as now appeared at the top left-hand corner of the screen. For some reason when I scan the transponder on the other channels option on my Panasonic Freesat receiver it picks up the transmission but it shows NO SIGNAL on the TV screen. Whereas there is no problem on the Free-To-Air receivers. This particular transponder I believe is steerable so would this make it suitable for beaming a signal to the UK without it spreading towards central Europe.

Mark Aberfan Aerials: I would have thought the only problem would be that, as also "premium" satellite broadcaster (for the porn channels) he probably won't want to risk a dispute on that front.
