    Lost freeview channels.

    For some reason, my digital freeview box has decided to lose BBC1 and BBC2. The signal comes as full strength when I click on the channel, then the screen goes blank, and a 'no signal' box appears, no other channels are effected. It seemed to start last week right after we had a bout of heavy rain and hail and I can still watch those channels in analogue mode.
    Aerial is new, fitted approx. 10 months ago and is pointing in the right direction, do you think I have a duff box?

    At least you can get Freeview! I had to get Sky as I don't live in a Freeview area...

    Tried the rescan function, it comes up as no signal then stops. It's a ****e box basically, time to invest in a new one just so I can watch repeats of Britain's got talent on ITV2 lol.
