I made several full resets this morning and was prompted to do another one this afternoon. The SD channels are fine but there are no HD ones. Sois this single frquency interference? I can't see how. I have no devices connected to my (full HD) television.

My television disgnostics indicate 100% signal strength and no errors.

Peter Danckwerts: I saw that before I posted. My understanding is that our television has Freeview HD but I've seen contradictory information since I posted yesterday, which is very frustrating. It's a Samsung UE27D500NWXXU. Frankly, there has been a lot of (probably intentional) misinformation. My wife bought it and I've no idea what the salesman told her.

Thanks. It comes down to what my wife asked and what the salesman told her and I don't suppose she asked the right questions.

However, there is definitely misselling. I saw an ad for this model yesterday and it was advertised as 'Freeview HD' (OK, it is HD and it is Freeview, but 'Freeview HD' would suggest to most people that it had a Freeview HD-compatible tuner). I think in general those selling these televisions are only too glad to take advantage of customers. Also, I can't see why anyone would knowingly buy an HD TV in the UK with built-in Freeview tuner which didn't decode the HD signals. If they wanted an HD TV to use with cable, for instance, they'd have no need for a Freeview tuner at all.
