    Hi
    I have been away for a week and come back to find the channel retune must have happened in the London area whilst I was away. I retuned my TV and all is fine. But on doing an automatic retune on my Thomson STB feeding the Tivo I can no longer receive BBC1 or BBC2 to my Tivo. The same aerial feeds my TV and that can still get BBC1 and BBC2. I have tried connecting the arial cable directly to the STB (rather than via the splitter I normally use) but to no avail

    I have tried doing a manual scan on the STB for channel 23 at 490,000 but no BBC1 or BBC2 are found

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    It is a Thomson DT 11002 - at least that is the only number I can se anywhere on the box other than the serial number

    It sounds to me as though your box doesn't support the new transmission modes. I don't know the details of the London switch-over, but I think that the BBC A transponder will have switched over to 8k/64QAM during the first stage of switch-over. The other muxes will all change to that mode on April 18th at which point I think your stb will be useless.
    http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/transmitternetwork/transmitter_groups/crystal_palace has the second stage details.

    Thanks Duncan
    Within the STB menu I have tried to "manually tune" and I am offered the option to choose 2K or 8K, so I choose 8k on channel 23 at 490,000, but still do not find BBC1 or 2. Do you know if there is there another setting I need to change?

    Actually, I realise now that the model is a Thomson DTI 1002

    My Mother in Law's STB retuned okay but she now has no subtitles on BBC2 or BBC News 24.

    It is a Grundig GT1500, any ideas?
