I receive Freeview from Tacolneston, and record programmes both on a PVR and
using Windows Media Centre on a PC. I shall be on holiday when the first
retune is required (Nov 9th); is it only BBC TWO that is affected by this?
In other words, will recordings set for other channels continue to work after
November 9th until November 23rd?

Thank you

Mike

Briantist, many thanks for this information. I guess I'm going to miss Frozen Planet and Formula 1 then, as I can only record from Freeview. Do you know whether BBC Radio 4 Extra (708) will be affected on November 9th?

Thanks

Mike

Briantist, thanks for confirmation re Radio 4 Extra. I've set up remote access to my desktop PC and if circumstances allow I'll try a remote retune from SE Asia.

Thanks - Mike

Briantist: I succesfully retuned my Digivox Freeview TV USB dongle from Chiang Mai in northern Thailand by remote desktop access, and was delighted to find that all the programmes I had set to record were waiting for me when I got home last Sunday!
An added complication was that a scheduled power cut was in force when we left for our holiday, and so I had had to set up my computer carefully to ensure that it would reboot as soon as the power returned, and that the necessary applications would also restart. Now all I have to do is to find time to watch them :-)
Thanks again for your advice - Mike
