Lost BBC1 on my tv

  depressed 13:25 17 Jul 09

I have lost BBC1 when I updated my search as prompted by my TV. I have all other programmes including BBC2 etc and all are in their correct places. I have spent hours trying to reprogramme and find the lost BBC1. I have another tv which is running off the same ariel and there is no problem there..I just do not know what else to do?

any suggestions wouldbe appreciated.

Thank you

Try tuning BBC1 manually.

You might also (if your set is similar to mine's menu options) inadvertently deleted BBC1 in your Favourites.

Thanks for your response. I have checked favourites and it is not there. I am unsure how to manually set programmes I have a 5 year old Pansonic which has never let me down before. I has got to be some thing quite obvious..but at the moment not to me!!!!

Are we talking analogue or digital?

And from which transmitter?

You didn't say your TV was five years old - as Clapton is God has asked, does it relate to analogue or digital (Freeview) transmissions (if you have an integrated set)?

You can find out any transmitter work being undertaken or channels temporarily off-air at:

I had this problem just last weekend.

Try a re-tune with the aerial going directly into the back of the TV.

Once you have found your lost channels you will keep them unless you do a further re-tune.

In the end I kept checking the signal strength and when it was showing as 'Excellent' I did the re-tune again and got them back.

I've been having the same problem for a few weeks now - constantly getting 'No signal' messages from EVERY BBC digital channel and, like you, when I did a re-tune I lost all BBC!

Most recently this problem coincided with work being done on the transmitter (Crystal Palace).

When that was finished, I re-tuned again and hey presto!

Fingers crossed.
