Until Friday 2nd March at around 8am I was able to get ITV1,2,3 etc with good reception via my freeview box. From about 8am onwards the reception disappeared. I have tried retuning on more than 1 occassion and now only get 33 tv channels & 20 radio channels. Why have they disappeared? My postcode is DA13 0RR.

andrew harris: If you have the manual for your TV have a look at the specifications section / input sockets, and make sure that ARC is seen mentioned somewhere associated with the HDMI socket, as thats a necessary requirement to be able to extract audio from the TV's HDMI socket. (ARC by the way meaning "audio return channel")

Maybe you could mention the model of TV involved plus the model of the surround sound unit, as I suspect that if ARC is available its being blocked by something.

Can you just use a red/white audio cable to connect your tv to the surroun sound system?
Are there any other sockets (scart, audio, digital audio)available on the tv and surround sound?

I have just moved into a house that has a sky dish installed downstairs with a twin satallite cable.Can I buy a new TV{the Toshiba 3d one in Currys has a satallite input on the back but only one which I have not seen on many of the new tvs at the moment}and connect the cable directly to the TV with no Sky box?Would this give me the free to view channels from sky directly or free to view from freesat without the need to subscribe?

Lisa: Yes, just plug in one of the connections to the TV and you will get Freesat HD, no subscription is required.
