Freeview modes - a simplified explanation | Freeview news

I am in Watford, Herts.
I have Technika HD ready LCD with Technika HD STB, HDMI connected. The antenna is Grp:A Yagi - in the 2nd floor bd-rm, against the window. I have difficulty getting/saving the HD channels. Sometimes I get them after repeated re-set/retune. Even after I have got them, suddenly "No Video Audio available" & upon retune no HD channels come up! I re-aim the antenna slightly everytime I retune, but same as before - even if I got the HD channels they disappear?
Kindly help please? Thanks & regards.

Kind regards & grateful thanks for helpful information. I will try out as suggested. As you say sw-over is less than 4 months away; & the reception quality even as SD very good.
The signal level is 100% & the quality is around 70% & never less than 40%. I have also noticed that the transmitted level is "below average" signal. So, I might just postpone getting the HD multiplex until sw-over.
Keep up the expertise & help us as needed!
Best wishes - not just Seasonal, but for all time to come! = "Subash".

"Brian", hope still not too late for SEASONAL GREETINGS? After all it is the 12th day!

I just finished reading your article, using the link "digital" above.

To have on hand such useful information very expertly condensed & explained for "non broadcast engineers" merits the immense appreciation of mine, & others who I am sure would have enjoyed it & found it useful.

Kind regards. - "Subash"

Will Catchup services on BBC Red Button become available on Freeview? = & Any other catch up services? NOT the "+1" or Ch 47.
Thanks & kind regards.

Please help - re: HD Channels audio.
I have VIRGIN STB downstairs and a TECHNIKA HD STB upstairs. When I run HD Channels, especially the BBC ones, the audio output to the Amplifier(s) is much lower than the SD version. Eg: VIRGIN Ch 101/108 and Freeview Ch 1/101. The reception is excellent except for this annoyance. I sometimes have to watch the SD Channels, as the HD Ch's output is very low!
The Radio Ch's on the other hand have much greater output - & if I change over from a TV Ch, the audio is extremely loud!
Kind help & suggestions would oblige.
If necessary kindly take this up with BBC Engineers, as my enquiries have have not helped. THANKS & KIND REGARDS.

Re: My previous message - I am in WD19 area, with unobstructed signal path from Crystal Palace. I use a rooftop "standard gain wideband yagi", with a direct cable run to the upstairs HD TV.
