My ariel is roof mounted and receiving signals from Blackhill. I have been using a Top up TV card to watch ESPN via a CAM card for 12 months with no problem. About 2 weeks ago I lost my HD signals and eventually tracked it down to the CAM When inserted to receive Espn no HD channels, when removed all HD channels. Called Topup TV who said it was a known problem which they could not offer a solution except to insert and remove CAM as required.

Is this caused by Blackhill transmitting both on same frequency or somehow conflicting?

Any help would be appriciated.

I contacted TUTV again and they have been instructed not to admitt that the problem lies with them and they are unable to solve it.

First they said it was a software/firmware issue with TV. When I explained it had been ok for a year and the same version of software was in TV since new as I had taken a note of it when I first switched it on, they then said it was due to a stronger signal from Blackhill since the digital switch over.

In the end they offered me a TUTV box to use my card with instead of the CAM.

The two options I now are left with are:

Insert and remove Cam to watch TUTV or HD as required. or

Connect TUPV box, use the tuner in that to watch TUTV and then switch to the tuner in my TV to watch HD channels.

None of the two are ideal.

Yes they offered the box free. I received it this morning. It is not the one shown on their site for £49.99 but the older Sagum version which looked like new, but had refurbished on the side of the box. They must have a stock of these to cover this problem which they can not fix.
