Yes there is. The method varies from one make of box to another and sometimes involves creating a list of 'Favourite' channels.

There are so few HD channels at present it's hardly difficult to...

I think it's the same story in a lot of places?

COM8 reception has been deteriorating here ever since I first locked it. Some of that may be due to bad weather but I've a feeling they've been gradually 'turning down the wick' to avoid interference...

That possibility had occurred to me thanks but I've finally managed to lock Ch35 which suggests the communal system is using a simple Group B aerial filter.

I understand how a filter in the communal system can block channels 32-34 but COM8 is on Ch35 where I live - which is within group - and I still can't lock the signal. :confused:

It's more a case who is willing to allow their programmes to be seen free-of-charge in HD?

QVC is, Channel 5 isn't.

For new accounts, yes. People who've had AOL "unlimited" accounts since before Carphone Warehouse took over are allowed 60GB.

The figure isn't set in stone though. You can go over in a single month...
