Rob: BBC TWO has closed forever on analogue, Channel 5 was never broadcast from the Wharfedale transmitter.

You must now be using Freeview to receive any BBC channels, the "red button" is ONLY carried on Freeview so you must be using it.

Thanks for your prompt response.

I do not have a freeview box and my TV (new) does not have onboard Freeview.

If I did have either surely I would be getting BBC2 by retuning?

Also, will Ch5 be available in 2 weeks time?

Rob: You should have ALL the BBC channels when you switch your set to "digital mode" and retune. They are being broadcast on the old ITV1 analogue frequency (ITV1 analogue has moved to BBC TWO analogue old slot).

Yes, the channels listed at the top of the page will be on in two weeks. You will only get the HD channels if you have a Freeview HD (DVB-T2) set, however.

Don't want to appear pedantic, but as I have most BBC channels,... where is BBC2?

My TV searches for all digital/analogue channels, but BBC2 is nowhere to be seen.

22 on digital, but only 3 on analogue.

Puzzled!

Rob: BBC2 Analogue has been switched off. ITV1 is currently on the old BBC2 channel (C28). The BBCA multiplex, which carries all the Standard Definition BBC channels is now transmitted on C25, the old ITV1 frequency.

On 21st September, the other analogue signals will be switched off, and the D3+4 and BBCB multiplexes will begin transmission.

I am unable to get Sky News on my Wharfdale Freeview integrated Tv for some time now.

I have 2 TVs and two aerials on the roof. I receive all the available channels on the goodmans tv which has a set top box and is at the back of the house.

The Whardale tv is nearer the front, has its own aerial.
I receive all the channels as on the other tv EXCEPT SKY NEWS. Channel 82 is not even showing.

Please help.

Many thanks.
