Hello
My name is Steven Nettleford and I am contacting you on behalf of a fitness company called to Zero To Hero, who are going to be bringing their exciting fitness event to Worcester for ten weeks starting this September.This email is an introduction to the company.
Zero To Hero is the unique white collar boxing training programme that takes Contenders from all walks of life on a 10 week journey that develops their mental strength and physical ability to levels that they never thought possible under the guidance of experienced Principal Coaches. Contenders are carefully vetted to ensure that they are all regular working guys from Company Directors and Builders, to Postmen, Policemen and from Decorators and Engineers to those in the retail industry. T

Michael Drinkwater (Builder)When I first started Zero To Hero I didn't realise what a positive impact it was going to have on my life. I was a relatively shy person before but during these 10 weeks I have met some good new friends and found myself feeling a lot more confident in day to day life. I'm feeling the fittest I have ever felt and I'm looking forward to continuing to keep fit after this amazing
experience

So whether your motivation is to lose weight, gain new levels of fitness, raise money for charity or simply to experience the adrenaline rush as your name echoes around the arena, the Zero To Hero programme is a once in a lifetime experience, and the cap it all of the ten week event climaxes with a fight televised on sky tv. For any companies wishing to sponsor the event, having 2000 spectators and an event televised on sky tv , this is a unique advertising opportunity. Check out our official website :

I venture to suggest that this website is not the place to be advertising whatever it is that you are trying to sell. This website is primarily about resolving reception difficulties with television services.

No Freeview HD from Malvern tonight, or is my set-top HD box playing up?

Phil: Nothing is seen listed as yet as far as any failure of Malvern's HD transmitter is concerned, if its not possible to check with a neighbour to find out if they are also being similarly affected, then try disconnecting your box from the mains for about 60 seconds or so before reconnecting it again.

However, should it subsequently be found that the situation remains the same, then carry out a manufacturers reset on the box, this also known as "first time installation".

By the way, what brand / model of box is being referred to?

My humax finds no HD channels on 60. Never has. Does Malvern do HD or not?

Trevor: Every single transmitter has had HD channels from the switchover. Either there's something stopping your box receiving UHF channel 60, or the box is not a FreeviewHD box - have you tried manual tuning in DVB-T2 mode?
