Hi,
Since the first part of the digital switchover on Sep 12th I'm constantly loosing the digital BBC channels. I've tried various retunes and even the retune procedure with the aerial cable out then back in, all to no avail. The aerial is roof mounted and the location is TS17 0SH, Ingleby Barwick. I should mention that I keep getting on screen messages coming through saying 'The channel list has been updated'
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks.

I don't want to speak too soon but I think the problem is resolved. I tried resetting the digital box to the factory default and doing a fresh installation and the BBC channels are now present.
Hopefully it'll be ok now.

Since the switch over my PVR keeps loosing the channels on Com 5. A manual or automatic retune finds them ok but they drop out at random times or if the PVR goes into standby. The digital tv is fine and the digi box on an old tv is also fine....we have a signal booster on because prior to the switch over we had problems with channel drop out and picture break up and the booster resolved it. Although pick tv did remain troublesome on the pvr. Post Code TS17 0SH. Stockton on Tees.
I guess this is an obvious question but does this seem like a PVR fault? and if so why only certain channels and not all of them? Is it possible we may no longer need the booster on since the increase in power output and could this be the problem? I need to get this working because the wife likes Star Trek and likes to watch it after working late....

Hi Dave,
Yes I agree with Tony this is a great site and I thoroughly appreciate your time and help.
I managed to find out we have a wideband aerial fitted so I'm unsure whether this a k group aerial or not?
