Dear Briantist,please help me ! I have a Panasonic HD TV connected to a Humax Freesat HD receiver but just recently ( in the last week )I have noticed that as from the early evenings the BBC HD channels have disappeared showing ' BAD SIGNAL ' on the screen. I'm communicating with you from the Algarve in Portugal; is it possible that the BBC deliberately reduce their HD signal strength during the evenings when they have maximum viewer numbers ?

Technophobe: There is no change to the power output of the transmitter during the day or night.

However, when you already have a weak signal (as you are outside the "footprint") the effect of sun on the atmosphere can effect satellite reception.

You could use a larger dish to resolve this problem, but first I would use a satellite signal meter to ensure the dish is well aligned to the satellite.

Briantist: thanks for your response.
I now understand that the evening loss of the BBC HD channels was wrapped up in the ( then ) pending switch of satellites and now that the switch over has been achieved my HD channels have been regained

Midhurst transmitter.
On ITV1 I get South local news.
On ITV1HD I get South East local news.
Is it possible to get South news on ITV1HD?

Dennis: No because there are only a handful of ITV1HD regions (four or five, I believe).

jim mccormack: The West coast of Scotland is a very large area and a more precise location is required, a post code or one from nearby being suffice, as the signal levels expected at your location can then be assessed as well as the transmitter that serves the area.

jim mccormack: Please ignore my request for info on location as I failed to notice that the model referred to is a Freesat device, however regarding your ITV HD problem, does the ITV HD channel number 119 show on the EPG list but its just that you cannot receive it even although you have the box coupled into an HD Ready TV via an HDMI lead?

Jim - I think jb38 has picked your post up incorrectly as your receiver is a "Freesat" satellite box, rather than a "Freeview" receiver where it takes the digital transmission from a transmitter. Too much "POP" I thing after that England win!!

However he is correct in that the post code will determine whether the channel list, channel guide gives you eg:- ITV Granada HD in the Border ITV region - Dumfries and Galloway area of West Scotland or if you are from Ayrshire upwards STV.

To get ITV HD if your in an STV area you will need to put in either a Dumfries & Galloway post code or one from an English ITV region.

P>S> Living in the South West of Scotland, I can get STV HD (basically the same program line up as ITV HD), but the parameters for this have to be added manually, o my Humax PVR receiver.
