After the Olympics what will happen to the bandwidth used by the BBC HD stream?
Will it be used for a HD channel, Channel 5HD or some SD channels?
As the HD stream is on the Freeview light network as well as the main transmitters,
I hope for some more choice and not a +1 channel or a HD channel the same as the SD one.
I believe the 24 channels are also avalable on virgin but I am not sure about HD. Sky is using 6 transponders for 24 HD channels which is a good sign that we will get a higher bitrate than the low bitrate BBC satellite pictures. I suspect they will also be 1920x1080 as opposed to the BBC's substandard 1440x1920 pixels.
Why is CBBC Channel changing to 73 on Freeview in Tyne Tees and Ulster regions? Even in those two unswitched regions, it shouldn't be necessary to change the logical channel number of CBBC Channel temporarily from 70 to 73.
Do you know if an official Skybox, plugged into a Sky minidish, but without a current subscription would be able to receive the 24 streams (preferably HD!) - even if they had to be manually tuned on the box? Thanks!
I am currently not getting a picture on BBC H D Channel 54 on Freeview. The sound comes through and I can use red button to get 301 Olympic stuff but he main channel theicture comes on and then disappears after about 30 seconds
M: With queries of this nature its essential for a person to provide a post code (or one from nearby) for purposes of being able to assess the signal strength expected at the location, as the problem you have mentioned is sometimes an indication of an over powerful signal.
I got a message on my TV to retune in order to get red button coverage of the Olympics. I retuned, and now have no BBC1, 2, 3, 4 or BBC news channels. I normally get good reception. Nearest transmitter is Emley Moor. Any advice much appreciated. Many thanks
Seem to have resolved my problem. Switched off PVR, removed aerial, rescanned all channels, switched off again for a while, reconnected aerials and rescanned and BBC is back (so is the message asking me to retune to get Olympic coverage, but I won;t be falling for that one again!)
I bought my HD box specifically to watch the Olympics in HD; everything been fine for last couple weeks but since yesterday the BBC HD picture reception is lost as soon as the "Olympics Extra" red button appears;sound is there as are the other HD channels; have tried rescanning lots of times but problem persists! any advice?
I have found a partial fix Finlay, I am using a Technisat Hd box which works as a recorder with a portable hard drive plugged into the USB slot. It seems if I record channel 54 as soon as it comes on before the red dot comes on then it seems to override the red dot coming up and records the programme or I can watch the programme on Bbc hd as normal.while recording it.
It seems we are pretty near to each other and might be using the same transmitter so it may be a transmitter issue.
I do hope to get to see the 3d Olympic and proms coverage on bbc had
thanks 'M'--you're partial fix has worked; I also have a technisat box & by starting a recording before the Olympics Extra red button appears I can watch on HD; I suspect the problem IS transmitter related [technisat helpdesk say it's not related to their product] & probably we'll be back to 'normal' HD viewing after the games?
Picture on all the Olympic feeds freezes on my Bush HD box. Impossible to watch. Furious!!
I have managed to add the SD feeds as non Freesat channels & they are perfect, but cannot add the HD feeds other than on the EPG
I have the same situation, which is very limited options, usually only two channels. I don't have sky or virgin or anything like that, just a digitalsignal and a free view tv, plus a digital recorder with free view . Can anyone tell me, is this all I can get, or should I do anything to get more channels. Thanks
Hi, I'm in SE 8 and followed your turn off/ retune instructions to get my BBC channels back, but this morning I am receiving such a poor signal I keep losing picture/sound. This is driving me nuts! I have a freeview tv and all the other channels are normal- what can I do? Thanks emma
