I have a new TV with Freeview HD built in and am in the BlackHill transmitter region. However, after tuning it does not pick up any HD channels. Is it likely to be my aerial that is incompatible, or signal strength (this looks fine on the SD channels I get), or something else?

Iain: Are you sure your rooftop aerial is pointing at Black Hill, and not Craigkelly ?

Iain: Given that you can analogue Channel 4 perfectly well (I am assuming) you might just have to wait for BBCB to switch to high power on C50 on Wednesday 22nd June 2011.

I have the Samsung LE40C580 HDTV and would like to know the meaning of the symbols shown when you press the 'INFO' button.
Depending on the type of programme being broadcast, the list of symbols range from... 1080i - 16.9 - HD - G - D -AD - _ etc. Some of which are fairly obvious. The ones I am not sure about are the stylised D in a purple box, G in a red circle and AD. Any help with other symbols not listed here also appreciated.

Hi Briantist:
I already have the Samsung manual download for my TV but it does not list the the meanings of the INFO letters. I know AD as this one is discussed in he manual, it's just G and D and any others that have yet to appear. I have search the internet in all the obvious places but can find no reference, even in TV magazines. Thanks for trying.

Lawrie: Do you mean you don't get HD channels, or you don't get *any* channels?

For HD channels you need a Freesat HD box or TV. There are a few TVs that can handle satellite signals directly, but most need another box to interpret the signals from the dish. Both Freesat and Freesat HD boxes are available, but only the HD boxes will decode HD channels.

If you have a Freesat HD box, you can find a channel listing here: Channels | Join Freesat . Channels in bold are in HD.

That only applies to freesat-branded boxes. It's also possible to buy free-to-air boxes that will pick up all free-to-air transmissions, but which don't handle the Freesat EPG. For these, you will need to tune them yourself - for a list of free-to-air channels see http://en.kingofsat.net/pos-28.2E-fta_eng.php. (RG47SH)
