From Wikipedia: The channel's annual budget for 2011/12 is 1,166.6 million.3 Along with the BBC's other domestic television stations, and many European broadcasters and some in Asia, it is funded principally by the television licence fee, and therefore shows uninterrupted programming with no commercial advertising at any time. It is currently the most watched television channel in the United Kingdom, ahead of its traditional rival for ratings leadership, ITV1. This system used a vertically-scanned image of 30 lines just enough resolution for a close-up of one person, and with a bandwidth low enough to use existing radio transmitters. - link icon read more about BBC One HD on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

Richard P: There are no regional versions of BBC One HD in England, this is down to the huge cost of equipping not just the regional news studios, but the whole transmission chain in each region for HD, in order to show only 1-2 hours of regional news and other non-national programmes each day. It will probably only be when a date is set for BBC One SD regions to close that we will start to see anything other than perhaps a handful of the larger/more highly populated regions be made available in HD.

Rupert Jones:

There is no such thing as a "digital" aerial! Aerials are aerials that pick up RF signals whether they be digital or analogue.
What make and model of aerial is it? What is the brand and version of the cable (markings on it should advise).

How long have you had the problem, when did it start and is that the reason you replaced the aerial?
Please provide a full postcode so we can look at predicted reception in your locale, it may be that you are in an area with marginal reception of the HD multiplex for some reason.

I've lost my HD channels. Signal strength on all non-HD channels is very good. Have bought a new digital aerial with a reception frequency range of UHF 470-698MHz. Rewired entirely with new coax cable too. Neither of these have fixed the problem.
My transmitter is Wenvoe which transmits BBC1HD at 682MHz.
Connected TVs to BT YouView box and direct to antenna cable - same outcome on both set ups.
Please help.

Perhaps you could try answering the questions in my previous reply to you!

I don't know for certain what happened to the content of your last post, my guess is because you posted another identical post, the software on this site automatically removes duplicate posts.
