Not getting 5STAR+1, 5USA+1 and More4+1 on Freevie

  PhantomOfTheDay 19:37 25 May 2019

Alright so I use Freeview. I get 99% of all the channels available. Sometimes, I want to catch up with a movie on 5STAR for example 1 hour later. Then I try to go to channel 56, and I don't get to 5STAR+1 (Ch 56) instead nothing happens. Can I get help?

Have you updated it recently. There were hannel changes about a fortnight ago so maybe run the update.

I have updated it many times even BEFORE and AFTER the fortnight and nope, no 5STAR+1, 5USA+1 or More4+1

I checked my area on Freeview's channel checking thing and it says I SHOULD be able to receive those channels.

Sorry for the late reply!

I have a humax freeview box and am fed up with how often they move channels. As you say they disappear and when a channel number changes the record menu records the program channel BUT not necessarily the program you wanted.

When I get a firmware update I have to format my drive because the drive is % full but I cant see the recorded programs list.

Another update today. Mostly UKTV channels being moved around. Drama & Yesterday being the main ones.

Did that and got Home on channel 12, Dave on 19 and Yesterday on 25 as expected but none of the mentioned channels in the topic (5STAR+1,5USA+1 or More 4+1)

Yes mine are missing aswell on 3 TVs and 2 Humax recorders

I can receive both East and West midlands so I'm assuming these channels are no longer broadcasting

Just wondering if you have only the one aerial.

I think that you need 2 to get all the channels. That is if you are using an aerial of course.

My old house I had two aerials one pointing to Bedford the other pointing to east anglia. One was for sandy heath. Cant quite remember the other one.
