I saw a retune message this morning (15 May 2013). However none is needed. The channel changes apply only to Ventnor and Salibury in this transmitter group.

Your information about the March retune does not match that at DigitalUK. They say 21 Mar 2018 and have completely different channel assignments. Some of their advice is a bit dodgy: they suggest that the new channels can be received on a group K aerial but that may struggle reaching up to C59. A group T may be needed as muxes start at C29.

I too have the problem that I cannot record from the PSB3 (BBCB) mux from Midhurst on my Panasonic PVR since the 21 March retune. That affects all the main HD channels and Film4+1.

That is despite many cycles of clearing the channel tuning information and manually tuning. Fuller details of what I did are on the DS forums.

Fortunately my reception from Heathfield is just adequate to get PSB3. My other 5 muxes are still Midhurst. There are occasional dropouts. It would be good if Panasonic and the broadcasters sort this out.

Yesterday I retuned my Panasonic DMR-HWT130 to see if the Midhurst engineering work on 18 April had helped. There is no change. I still cannot record any of the channels from PSB3 (BBC B: most of the HD plus Film4+1).

Peter Simpson:

If you have Panasonic's ear you might point them at a similar problem. In December last year a number of Panasonic owners reported that they could not record BBC4 HD. I do not know all of the transmitters were involved but they cannot have included Midhurst as we do not get COM 7 & 8. Fenham, Darvel and Fenton were cited. Bluebell Hill started having problems with BBC4 HD after its January retune..

The problem went away (I hesitate to say it was fixed) with a transmitter retune on 11th January.

Bluebell Hill started working late January, round about the 25th.

My Panasonic PVR has just updated its software version to 1.39. I will retune tomorrow to see if the BBC B recording from Midhurst has been fixed.
