    Hi,

    I have Elgato EyeTV Digital TV Recorder Version 2.5.3 (3313) running under OSX version 10.4.11 and using a Miglia TVMini (TVM01) USB 2.0 DVB-T Digital Video Recorder device.

    Recently, (after no software changes except maybe a osx/safari/itunes update, but I can't imagine why this would cause a problem), certain channels now display "No Signal", and when I check the preferences Signal info, these channels have a strength and quality of 0%. This seemed to happen all of a sudden, and I now cannot get the channels working again (despite trying a signal booster, re-scanning all channels) while other receivers (i.e. a TV) seem to work fine from the same input.

    A full listing of the channel titles (and numbers) which are displayed as having 0% strength and quality are: Yesterday (12), 4music (18), Film4 (15), Viva (21), Ideal World (22), ITV4 (24), Dave ja vu (35), Big Deal (32), Virgin+1 (35), Create & Craft (36), Rocks & Co (40), Lottery Xtra (45)
    Russia Today (85), smileTV2 (94), Babestation (96), Babestation2 (99).

    Does anyone have any suggestions of how to get these channels back working again?

    I do not live in the UK. I presume that these are cable channels. How do the other receivers acquire their signals?

    Sorry, in the UK, Freeview is managed by DTV Services Ltd, a company owned and run by five shareholders - BBC, BSkyB Channel 4, ITV and Arqiva. Launched in October 2002, the Freeview service provides up to 48 free-to-air digital TV channels, radio stations and interactive services through an aerial.

    So, the receiver input is just from an aerial via a coaxial cable, there is no other equipment in the way to be causing the issue...
