I have just retuned today to a HD freeview box and have lost "Dave"
I retuned yesterday (13th jun) using my TV's integral freeview and "Dave" was there.
I have a roof aerial directed at Hasyngs and my post code is TN40 2EW.
Ant ideas?

Sorry about the delay - family stuff.
Yes, I got full freeview coverage before switchover from Hastings. I can still get"Dave" that way but not via my new HD freeview box.
I can get "ITV3" and "Yesterday" no problem.
I can see a signal strength screen, how do I associate it with a channel (frequency?).

Thanks Dave, will give it a go.
As an academic question, how did my problem arise?
My roof aerial points to Hastings (will align to Heathfield soon) and feeds a HD Freeview box. This in turn links to a Freeview recorder (by scart and co-ax) which links to a Freeview TV (by scart and co-ax).
The HD box is linked to the TV by HDMI.
I don't have enough sockets to do it any other way.
I can't get "Dave" via the HD box but can get it via the recorder or via the TV.
I can't work that out, can you?

Incidentally, Dave, I'm getting 60% on C26 at 514 Mhz

Just to let you know, I have found all the channels I was previously missing. Thanks Dave.
My latest (since wednesdat) HD problem is this occasional message "no audio/video or waiting for program card update".
Does this mean I have no signal or is more afoot?
I am in Bexhill and my aerial is pointed at Hastings.

Lately my Panasonic TV has been putting up the info banner from time to time in the evening. Is this a transmission, TV or remote handset fault?
