I have a toshiba dvdb box through which i get my freeview channels my tv is a 26 inch samsung hd tv yet i dont seem to be getting programmes in 180i format its always 720i is there a reason for this?
the current signal information is quality 83/84% signal strength 38%.
where my ariel is on the house there is a tree right beside it and this may be blocking the signal.
is there anything i can do to get the dvb box to show the picture in 180i instead of 720 or will the signal improve once the tree drops its leaves?
the signal strength/pic quality is more or less the same on all channels is there any reason why am not getting bbc1 2 itv and c4 in hd which is supposedly available through the relay transmitter here in cupar fife

@ steve onlin1 Ive now found that if i play a dvd it changes to 180i then when i stop the disc the setting remains in 180i on all the tv channels
strange that playing a dvd changes the setting dont you think?

The tv is a SAMSUNG LE 26R 74 BD it has analogue and freeview tuning so suspect it was one of the early sets made before freeview became the norm the freeview tuner does not tune in anything and used a freeview box at first then got the toshiba dvd box which is a DVB RD-97-DT-K-TB
I got the tv at a local charity which sells white goods tv's and furniture for ?16 it says DNi DVB SRS on the front panel, the dvb box i got off a friend of mine for a straight swop for a brand new power supply unit i had bought for my previous computer but had never used it as the motherboard on the computer went
hope the above is sufficent information my post code is KY15 5EN and my signal comes off the relay transmitter here in cupar though when i go onto the signal strength section it says highlands and islands for some reason

I have a toshiba dvb RT-97-DT-K-TB and did the retune on wednesday when the bbc news channel moved from 130 to 231 but after retuning i find that the old channels are still listed along with the new bbc and cbbc channels is there any way to delete these channels from the box or will they disappear gradually over time?

I dont have a manual for the dvb box but will wait until they disappear in september then do a full retune to reset everything

This new channel coming to freeview next wednesday paramount network does this mean yet another retune of my dvb box and you view box or will the you view box retune automatically though may need to do a manual retune of the dvb box?

I live in the ky155en postal code area and get freeview via a you view box from a relay transmitter but despite retuning the you view box twice including doing a full retune with the ariel disconnected to clear everything i still cant get paramount network
must be one of those channels which are not available via a relay transmitter

re getting paramount network which started on july 4th on freeview/youview i regret to say that my you view box did not do an automatic retune to find this channel and despite uplugging the ariel and doing a retune so that everything was wiped unplugging the you view box putting the ariel back into the box then plugging it back in and doing a fresh retune it still wouldnt tune it in
i take from that that its only full transmitters that have this channel and relay transmitters which cupar has post code ky155en freeview/you view users wont get it
