Hi, I live in Pembrokeshire and get my signal from the Preseli Transmitter and cannot receive Drama on channel 71. Will it be coming back any time soon?

D.G.Cawton: CBS drama (71) is now transmitted by a COM7 HD multiplex, Preseli not being one of the stations fitted with additional COM7 / COM8 HD multiplexes, unfortunately a situation unlikely to change in the immediate future.

derek: On the assumption that you receive Freeview from Crystal Palace, if you can view Talking Pictures (81) but not CBS Drama (71) then your EPG listings require updating.

You can achieve this in two ways, the first being to carry out a manufacturers reset on your box followed by an auto-tune, this procedure changing any personal preference settings back to their original default values.

The second method being to carry out retune on your box *after* having first of all removed the aerial connector, this action purely deleting everything stored on the tuners memory, reconnecting the aerial on completion of same followed by a normal auto-tune.

By the way, if you are unable to view Talking Pictures (81) then for some reason or another you are not receiving the COM7 HD multiplex, a post code being required to enable a check to be carried on your reception possibilities.

Derek: Hi Derek in Epping Green. I am very sorry that you are currently unable to view CBS Drama, which I believe, should be on Channel 71 on your Electronic programme Guide (EPG). If this channel is not listed in your EPG, then your Freeview HD set-top box has not registered it, so you will need to carry out a re-tune on the box. Alternative ways of carrying this out have been suggested in the posting on this site by jb38 at 6:10 p.m. I totally concur with what jb38 says and would recommend that you follow his professional, reliable instructions! Good Luck, Richard, Norwich.

John dakin: Hi, John. in order to receive CBS Drama now, you need to have two things: (1) a transmitter that transmits the COM7 multiplex (group of channels) to the aerial on your home and (2) a Freeview HD (high definition) set top box or an HD television set. It is not possible to recive CBS Drama if your local transmitter doesn't transmit the COM7 group of channels and quite a few transmitters don't. CBS Drama is no longer available for people to watch who have standard definition (SD) Freeview televisions or set -top boxes. Hope this answers your question, Richard, Norwich.

Jane Gash: Hi, Jane. I'm afraid you have gone to the wrong website. This is not the uk tv channels website You need www.uktv.co.uk for uktv channels. This website is called ukfree.tv and is to help viewers who are having 'Freeview' or 'Freesat' or 'Sky' or radio broadcast reception difficulties and so we help people by giving technical advice but we don't have anything to do with the programmes that are broadcast on Freeview channels. I think that you may actually need www.cbsdrama.tv/uk/index.php I hope this information will help you, Richard, Norwich.

I have retuned my TV 10 Times and still cannot access CBS Drama. This is really annoying as I was watching a series that cannot be found anywhere else. Does anyone know how I can access the channel again I would appreciate some advice.
