    Up until Wednesday night this box has performed without fault. However, it seems there may be a small issue. I struggle to get ITV2, the banner comes up and then the screen goes blank, the station may then appear after a short period, or not at all. The no signal message does not appear and signal strength is up at 95%.

    The same thing is now happening to BBC1, identical in fact. Is this a box problem or is it a Freeview glitch, ie, weather, intermittant weak signal. When BBC1 eventually does appear it is Okay moving up the channels and back again. However, if I move back to a blank channel and then back to BBC1 I have lost it again. I then can retrieve BBC1 by moving up to BBC2 and back again repeatedly until it appears.

    Has anyone any thoughts. My gut feels it is a freeview problem as the rest of the channels are fine and consistant. But could it just be the box!

    MY dad's Pioneer box is doing exactly the same and has been for a few weeks. ITV2 is getting really hard to pick up.

    I've noticed the same problem over the last two weeks. I wonder if it is a bad software update? I've had the box for months, and it has been working fine up until now.

    Everything was fine until this week. I turn on BBC1, I get a blank picture, it knows its BBC but nothing. All other channels are fine for...if I switch to something else and flick back sometimes BBC1 works. I was wondering if they are doing transmitter work at the moment as its been a fantastic box since I got it last November.

    It says that Mendip is only on reduced power for DAB Radio and Radio Bristol.
