Freeview query

As many of you know Virgin are now transmitting on Freeview all day. Up to the change over on the 20th both my Sony T/V EPG and Panasonic PVR EPG showed Virgin as channel 20 and both lists were exactly the same. But since then the lists on each vary - one showing the programs as starting 1 hour laterthen the other. I can now view either by switching the T/V to a different input (Av1 for the one) and it appears that one broadcast is analogue the other digital.

Any one know why Virgin are broadcasting that way ie:- rather like Dave and Dave Ja Vu.

Virgin 1 is on channel 20
Virgin 1+1 is on channel 35.
Have you retuned your tuners yet?

and I confess to be a bit woolly on this - Virgin is both cable and through the air-
So which are you and would it make a difference?

Thanks Jack, I knew that I had a sight problem and I had retuned both T/V and PVR but still couldn't see any difference 8-( - Thanks to your help in quoting the channel number (35) I have now found it. It is through the air.

Again, many thanks.

Sorry Grey Goo, I credited Jack with your help. I knew that my sight was getting worse but that's no excuse for my error - the real excuse is that when I saw the channel number I checked it out - then returned, read Jacks post before posting the reply - I should have re-read the posts.

I repeat my thanks - to both of you
