Retuned ok but 'Program Numbers' were incorrect and 'Program Swap' is

'down' selection skips it !!!]
Software Version: T_GREEPE00_1055
Hardware Version: v1.60a
Ok after THIRD auto tune but
.... a reset to factory conditions may have helped - it would then

Original Information from
Ian Thompson [Knottingley] ........
I just thought I'd make sure everyone knows what's
going on with the analogue terrestrial channels.
BBC 2 has now closed down which (technically) was on channel 51 on
the UHF band.
ITV has moved to channel 51 in its place.

ITV is on Programme number (or position number 2).
BBC2 is gone and there is nothing on the ITV programme number.....
On September the 21st all the other analogue
channels will close down and it will be goodbye from them .........
Goodbye from ALL - analogue
& digital 00:30 am 21/09/11 !!!!!!

the household, or the signal
from a box may be split and fed to two (or maybe more) TVs
simultaneously, although in this case, the same programme will
appear on all sets fed from the split signal.
Communal systems, (in blocks of flats for example), may have other
I hope this may answer a few questions.
