I am located at CM5 0PH. I have an LG plasma screen with built in Freeview and PVR with a relatively new aerial mounted on a mast on the roof. I normally receive the Alexandra Palace feed, but since Sudbury switched over it is overpowering the London feed.

I have tried manually retuning to put london BBC back in the normal places on my epg, but it keeps reverting to Anglia. This would be a minor irritation except that the mix of signals coming in appears to be upsetting the the TV software which freezes regularly. The set will continue showing the current programme, but will not change channel or show the epg.

Does anybody have any ideas how I can stop this problem or am I stuck with it until London switches over?

xVENUSx: There are various receivers (both digital and analogue) available that will connect to a Mac via USB. There are single and twin tuner models and even versions designed to convert external video to Mac compatible formats. They normally come with their own portable aerial, but I have mine connected to the main aerial feed distributed round my house. The software that runs them is called EyeTV and has an EPG, channel guide and recording facilities (to the Mac's hard drive). There was also an offer of a free year's subscription to the TVTV service, but I don't know if that is still running.
