Mark Ward: There was engineering work at the Emley Moor transmitter from just after midnight until around 6am on Wednesday. This was announced on Digital UK's Planned Engineering Works page the day before.

I've just sat down to watch Comic Relief and can't get signal for BBC 1, 2 or 3. Nearest transmitter Emley Moor. Tried twice to reinstall stations but disappeared completely. Any ideas?

I live in Yate and have a Sony tv with freeview inbuilt. I have a updated tv antenna with a good signal. My trouble is the tv is tuned into BBC Wales and ITV Wales. Anyone have any advise or ideas on how to change to English please as I want to watch local news. Thanks in advance.

Mike I think the sony TV will have the old software in it- no EPG,go further down the channel list you should find a different BBC and ITV, that mite be the channels you are looking for, then you can change the channel numbers to suit, also do a first time installation search first, if that dose not work you will have to have your aerial repositioned to a different mast.

Hi, ive connected a booster box in an attempt to gain a better signal on my upstairs tv but I have now got a bad inteference on all itv channels on my main tv downstairs. I thought the booster box would be a benefit but its made things worse.

We need a post code to help you properly,but at the moment till switch over, analogue and digital are being broad cast together,fitting a booster simply over loads the digital signal,if you want to run more than one TV, you will get the best results having a mast amplifier system fitted.Tom Fletcher Alpha Aerials Sheffield.

Mike- Try the 800+ channels or you could manually retune the English channels in/rearrange the channels; dependent on your equipment.

We have just moved into a flat. Our tv with built in freeview worked fine at our old house. Now we can't find any channels. Any suggestions? Thanks

We have sky and are getting a new TV. If we get one with a built in freeview HDTV are we able to watch sky and also switch over to the freeview box. We can't afford to pay for skys HD box and pack.Any help would be great. many thanks

Ben, Kim: we really need a full postcode to be able to help.

Kim: You would connect the Sky box to one of the TV's SCART sockets. There will be a Source or Input button somewhere on the TV remote which would allow you to select 'Digital TV' (usually) for the built-in Freeview tuner, and 'AV1' or 'SCART' or similar to watch Sky. Depending on where you live, you might not get HD services for up to a year. Make sure you get a TV with a Freeview HD logo, not just 'HD Ready' - an 'HD Ready' TV requires an additional Freeview HD set-top box or PVR. If you aren't expected to get HD transmissions for a while, it's worth waiting as choice is likely to increase, and prices drop, between now and when they start in your area.

Many new TVs have only one SCART socket, so you might need an external switch box if you also want to connect an old video recorder or DVD player. Newer equipment, especially HD equipment, is usually connected with HDMI cables and new TVs usually have a few of these.
