    I upgraded at the weekend to a V+ box from the old telwest pace box. Previously I could get text through BBC and ITV no problem but now the TV displays a text unavailable message. I have no aerial connection so cannot switch to BBC outside of cable.

    Any ideas?

    I'm guessing you must've gone from analog to digital. As far as I know, I don't think anyone gets teletext on digital cable at the moment :(

    I get Teletext from the V+ box, but only through SCART. You won't get it through HDMI, if you are using that.

    You can also get much of the BBC Teletext content through Interactive, so it's not a complete loss.
