They tested it a while back and nobody (on here) noticed any drop in quality (the BBC do more technical qualitative testing). If space becomes available they have to tell Ofcom, who then have the...

It's a bogus message. I get it here sometimes even though I'm connected - but using a TV that isn't compatible.

My Panasonic seems to get it right more often if you set it to 4:3. It seems to ignore that if there's a WSS, so if there is and it needs to be forced to 4:3 for some reason it needs to be...

I think 8xx is specifically marked as for duplicate services, but 9xx is "receiver specific". I'm not sure what is more receiver specific than some IP channels that only work on that particular...

I keep hearing this, but I've never noticed any More4/E4 shows on 4seven. I searched for The 100 across the EPG out of curiousity, and that's only on E4. As a big new US import, I'd expect it to be...

I would agree with this more if 4seven also showed stuff from E4 and More4 (and maybe even occasionally Film4). It wouldn't be too far off what BBC HD used to be, and would give C4 the opportunity...

None of the new Motorolas are listed in My3 in the "select your phone" thingy, so it's probably more a case of "we don't know what this is, therefore by default it's incompatible", than "we've tested...

There has never been a restriction on shopping channels. Why would there be?

Adult and gambling channels are not permitted under the terms of the BBC funding.
