    Some of the channels seem to have lost the Now and Next text (Blue and Yellow buttons I think). Is this just me or has something been turned off?

    Something HAS changed with the transmission that I don't claim to be able to describe technically.

    It depends on which channel you are watching as to which now & next information works.

    eg: tune to BBC1, can see now & next for BBC channels, but inaccurate/missing details for others; tune to ITV1 and can see accurate now & next for a different selection of channels.

    you didn't ask for confirmation! But here it is: -
    I can confirm that I get the same results as Nigel

    Hope it is fixed in the new service's autumn launch!

    I find that on Ch5 there is often no programme info available at all. As I hardly ever watch Ch5, I'm not bothered.

    I've tended to stop using my internal EPG anyway, in favour of BBCi's channel guide. :)

    Well the TV is not coping well with the loss of Info and the EPG is blank on SDN.

    I would also be very wary of a retune at present incase the channel ID is missing.

    DTVA copes ok, but Nokia box - only ever use with vcrs.

    However Nokia still picks up dead ITVD channels if a retune is done - DTVA tunes into E4 which went belly up 2 months ago.

    TV - I can manually tune out the dead E4 channel
