I have a full HD Tv a Toshiba 40L1333B to be precise I live in Chester : 102, CH1 2LF. Yet I can get no HD Channels at all, my tv only dispalys ITV wales, BBC Wales, etc. I don't understand why I can't get HD? I live in a hostel so it is a communal ariel to supply 12 rooms, could this be part of the problem? Please Help!!!

Adrian Marsh: The Toshiba manual does not indicate that this model is fitted with a DVB-T2 tuner, this type of tuner being necessary for Freeview HD reception, the HD side of the set purely referring to he LCD screen being capable of producing an HD picture via a device connected into the TV via its HDMI socket.

Adrian are you near City walls end of Watergate St. junction Nuns Rd, as I remember went I worked at Granada Tv Rentals the Flats aerials were directed on Moel y Parc Transmitter BBC Wales/HTV or the Wrekin Transmiiter BBC Midlands/Central as Winter Hill transmissions were Ghosting.

Adrian: It doesn't cost 'them' loads, but it is a cost, and frankly, thats a TV meant for a very particular price point. Cheap TV's (or should I say relatively cheap TV's) are that price for a reason, and if you were buying a 40in TV in 2013, then something with Freeview HD from one of the big four brands would have cost a bit more. However, the excellent LG 575 in a 42 was £379 in December 2013, and you would have had a similar specced panel (actually a very good one considering), and it would have been smart with wifi. But generally you would have possibly paid a bit more for the HD tuner. A Samsung 4000 32in TV is £199 for an HD ready panel and Freeview. The Samsung 5000 has a Full HD panel and Freeview HD. Its currently £239. So the HD box is £40. Buying a seperate box costs you at least £50. But for Toshiba, building a half decent set (with good things like opitical connections in the back) is simply not possible at that price without leaving out something. Ok, its not the worst thing in the world - the panel is 100hz, and its a decent brand. However, I suspect you bought it online or from Argos, thought it a decent price from a brand you'd heard of, and simply assumed that HD meant the tuner as well. Ok, I work for a company which is a rival to Argos, etc, but I'd never buy one from them, unless I'd looked very carefully into the spec. They tend to have 'HD' in big letters, but dont tend to mention thats the panel, not the tuner. TV's have never been cheaper for what you get, but if I wanted a decent Freeview HD TV for the same spec as yours,, then the Samsung H5000 for £329 http://www.johnlewis.com/…1311 would do you fine, with the smart version for about £400 (the LG 580 is £399). However, since I can get the very well specced 40in Samsung 6400 for £439 (which is a silly price) http://www.johnlewis.com/…9188 , thats what I'd go for. You do get what you pay for, but hopefully you've got an HD box of some sort, and it will all be fine.
