What is the logic behind switching BBC 2 to 109 and BBC 2 HD to 102?
Because the plan is if you have a HD box then if a SD channel had a HD variant then the HD version will be place above (or instead of) the SD version in the EPG.
BBC1 HD is only at 101 in Scotland, Ireland and Wales.
England won't see BBC1 HD on 101 until there are regional HD variants.
If you look you'll see that BBC3 HD and BBC4 HD have swapped with their SD versions too.
My thoughts are they should all be together wherever that may be, or perhaps a HD tab again where you could access them in one place.I wish they would do this with ALL the hd channels at the same time, common sense move if you ask me. Now my parents will at least watch a little bit of HD instead of sitting there watching in standard def because they can't understand changing channels with anything but the channel up and down keys.
Do you have a Foxsat? You can press one of the coloured buttons to display just the HD channels for selection, but there is no EPG.
No the HDR 1000s - the thing is it's only the BBC channels that have moved, we still have C4 and ITV in the back of beyond. I could put them in favourites but then with the amount of button presses to get to favourites with the 1000s I need to go on a work out first. Is it beyond the wit of man to get together with everyone concerned and work out an EPG that has a modicum of common sense to it?
So realised that many many yonks ago I installed with a London postcode to get ITV HD, this is why I am not getting BB2 HD. Have to install with my Scottish postcode to get BBC 2 HD on 109. Bye bye ITV HD! Will use that from Freeview HD on Youview.
You should get ITV HD London on 119 and BBC2 HD on 102 using a London postcode.
Have you tried pressing the red button while viewing 977 ?
Nope I had Wimbledon post code in SW18 and I got plain BBC 2 on 102. Will flip between both post codes and try 977 RB Graham thanks. All a bit of PITA as I like to series record on HD channels!
