I've lost COM7 in RG1 from Hannington. Can't get BBC4HD, BBC News HD , CBS Drama or Talking Pictures. I've done a factory reset on my PVR and rescanned. All other channels seems to be okay.

MikeB: Thanks for your help. I had never explored the manual tuning signal strength menu option before, always relying on autotune. This is what showed up:

PSB1 C45 SQ=100% SS=100%
PSB2 C42 SQ=100% SS= 90%
PSB3 C39 SQ=100% SS= 80%
COM4 C41 SQ= 60% SS= 80%
COM5 C44 SQ=100% SS= 90%
COM6 C47 SQ=100% SS= 90%
COM7 C32 SQ= 0% SS= 70%
COM8 C34 SQ= 70% SS= 70%

Unplugged aerial cable and plugged it back in again and COM7 burst back into life. Doh!
[I'd gone through the checklist, but assumed the check aerial bit only applied for "If you have lost ALL your Freeview channels". Lesson learned.]

Thanks once again.
