Hi. I currently get a blank screen and no audio on FreeviewHD in Taranaki for TV3, Four, C4, TV3+1. I have signal but just a blank screen and no audio
All other HD channels are OK, and all freeview channels are ok off satellite.

Anyone else in Taranaki seeing the same thing.

Regards Allen.

YES! I live in New Plymouth and am experiencing the exact same thing.

So glad it is not just me, thought the TV was stuffed.

It is very odd because I have my HTPC connected to the same aerial and I can get all these channels fine on that. My TV is a 40' Sony Bravia, about 2 years old, what is yours?

I know that TV3 and 4 and both carried on the same "mux", so it seems logical that something that has affected one will affect the other.

If anyone can shed some light on this I would also be very gald to hear it.

Should have mentioned, I have  perfect audio just no picture, the guide works fine (except for the PIP) and the signal level is 100% so no problems with that.

Im using a win7 media centre PC with 3 x UHF & 1 x Satellite tuner.

I have signal, just blank screen on these channels. The Dolby digital symbol is displayed but I have no sound either. Other Muxes are OK

Just came back exactly 20:00

Regards Allen.
