Can someone please help? Having installed a new TV during the Olympics and putting up with the awful pictures and sound I thought by now all would be good!! ITV1 HD and CHANNEL 4 HD, both loose sound for 1 second on and off at times throughout the transmissions. Both BBC HDs have been perfect for a while. Question 1, what on earth is going on? 2 how can I fix it?I am between Heathfield and Midhurst transmitters.

Philip Lane: I would check that it is tuned to the correct transmitter.

Answer to question 2 depends on what is the issue!

Bring up the signal strength screen and it should hopefully tell you which UHF channel it is tuned to. HD from Midhurst is on C58 and Heathfield's is on C47.

Philip Lane: Thank you Dave, I have checked today and yes I am tuned into Midhurst C58. The sound on all HD channels is still breaking up at times for 1 second including BBC2 this morning?
I am certainly puzzled?

Philip Lane: It's worth checking if there are any firmware updates for your TV. The encoders for Freeview HD can switch between interlaced and progressive modes for each Group of Pictures (GoP), depending on how well that GoP compresses in each mode. Some TVs don't cope well with a change of mode, resetting all the hardware, causing a break in audio as well as video. (They expected mode changes to only occur when switching channels or sources.)

Because the mode switches depend on the content transmitted, they will occur apparently at random, even within a programme, and different channels will be affected at different times.

Two more ITV HD regional variants were added to Freesat today.
Identified by the local news they carry, they are ITV HD Central and ITV HD Meridian.
These, together with ITV HD Granada and ITV HD London, bring the total to four.

Andy: That's because there isn't an ITV Wales HD to broadcast, so you get Central West.

chris:

I also live in Trowbridge and it is correct that the ITV HD service does not carry the local (HTV West) news. That's because the HD services are 'general' and carry the same programming as everywhere else in the UK. Only the SD services cater for the local news. I gather it's all abouit how muchg it costs to transmit local news in HD and to control the networking so that the correct local news gets shown.
