Just come back and had to retune. We were notified on the TV earlier this week.

I live in the NE and have terrestrial not satellite freeview. Has any one else here got this problem?

I was notified months ago to re-tune but I did zilch. I am like you, I have terrestrial with Freeview. So far it has been okay.

Did you know Ayse that you can download the Freeview app onto your IPad which will keep you going until you sort out your TV?

I often have to do a channel update as some disappear but it only takes two minutes to do a retune

There was an update at midnight on 13th November, and TVs all have to be retuned for that. I think it has something to do with 5G, but that may be wrong.

Anyway, it's nothing difficult, you just retune your TV, and if you have a set-top box or PVR such as a Humax, you retune that.

When I did it, a couple of channels had disappeared, but they came back when I did it again. I also lost a couple of things I had set to record (BBC4 very late/after midnight) as the signal must have gone by that time. All is well now, though.

We decided to take advantage of new technologies. My husband and I bought the MAG425A with a built-in Wi-Fi module. We watch any channels without problems in good quality.
