    Anyone have any idea why i can't get sound on the radio channels. The station names are picked up but my Panasonic says No service. None of the channels ever has sound.

    Any settings or hookup issues you know?

    Same here (Panasonic too)

    I was just assuming they're not broadcasting yet.

    Which transmitter are you using - I'm using Emley Moor.

    I have no idea what transmitter i am using

    But found a thread on Digital Spy regarding the issue. It seems the BBC flagged the channels as TV and thus the Panasonic box muted the audio when it did not receive a picture. This is now reported as fixed. Retune your box nd it should work. I will test this when i get home tonight.

    The thread is here http://forum.digitalspy.co.uk/board/showthread.php?threadid=38792&perpage=25&pagenumber=1

    All the radio channels are either broadcasting full schedules or are in testing mode and they all have graphic MHEGS on show.

    Sounds as if you need a software download to sort things out - that's what PACE did for my box and it's now working fine.

    Get on to Panasonic and give them a hard time...

    This is now fixed - just re-tune (the channels are now flagged as radio ones by the bbc). This has now highlighted a problem with the panasonic box. If you go to the radio channels you cannot get back to a TV channel - the box locks up. I believe we are waiting on a software upgrsde from panasonic on this.
    Someone on www.digitalspy.co.uk mentioned a workaround. Leave the TV guide on (i button) whilst listening to the radio channels - you can turn it off once you have got back to a TV channel. This works fine.
