Trying to watch BBC Four HD and BBC News HD on BT TV and it’s come up with the press red prompt and the signal quality is good, but a blank screen. Any ideas?

There was a Freeview retune in the Midlands and North West today. Have you tried retuning?

I’ll give it a go. Should automatically retune!

The COM7 and COM8 muxes are being moved around a bit - and the channels on them are being redistributed. Chances are you need to do a re-tune/re-scan.

Yes, though normally overnight while in standby. The night before last there where frequency moves
for COM 7 and/or 8 at Sutton Coldfield, Winter Hill, and Fenton, (plus the local Brum mux moving too)

I suspect the transmitters were dead when your box performed its overnight scan, hence the need for a manual scan (or wait another 24 hours)

Advance warning: COM 7 and 8 (plus other changes) for the London and the Meridian South regions on March 21
