Michael:
Does your TV have an GHD tuner built in? COM7 and COM8 are transmitted using DVB-T2 encoding so an HD tuner is required to receive these if they are available in your area. The Bilsdale tranmitter serving your area does indeed broadcast COM7 and COM8, so a check that your TV has an HD tuner is wise. Do not assume that an 'HD Ready' TV has such as most earlier ones are not necessarily equipped with the required tuner. You can check by putting the full model number (usually on the back) into Google or similar.

Michael. Sorry, the 'system' added a G unexpectedly, it should have read "Does your TV have an HD tuner built in?"
