    I have checked this my line is clearing some channels sd sports and hd 1-5 . Sd 1-5 ie the fta isnt clearing . It sounds like the warning letter virgin sent out saying people not upgrading are losing hd?

    if 1-5 sd arent clearing it would seem a cabling issue,
    Im fairly certain there is some legal reason why they are not allowed to block those as they are 'national' fta broadcasters,

    I'm almost certain they are not allowed to,

    cabling affects different frequencies in different ways,
