    why can't we get BBC channels on freeview?
    we've got an avtex and have tried auto tuning, we get ITV, SKY news etc but not BBC channels, any ideas?

    Cheers

    may I suggest you read the other threads about transponder changes affecting auto tuning sat dishes.

    Possibles - Aerial not lined up properly with the transmitter or (especially if it is an omnidirectional one) not powerful enough to pull in the signal; transmission of BBC stations on the transmitter concerned not powerful enough.
