Thanks for that I also read Andy's reply last night - the thing is as Myth
is set to get the EPG from the cards OTA (thus Dave & Virgin turned up all
by themselves) and as my Thomson PVR (to go!) box still shows the BBC radio
listing without a retune, I didn't even consider this action 8^(

However having done the rescan lastnight I have a few questions, perhaps I
should fill in a little detail: for some months now I seem to be having
trouble with some of the ITV stations, even ITV1 breaks up, I'm sure it
didn't when I first built the machine. I've had the experts in the check the
aerial/distribution box and all have a clean bill of health, but they can't
understand why the reception is so poor (fortunately free call out!) the one
thing they did discover is that when the Myth box was disconnected from the
distribution box the ITV channels on the Thompson played better.

Anyway watching the rescan the signal to noise was 98-100% so no problem
there, as I watched the channels go past I could see the strength go up to
about 30% on most of the stations, but here's the odd thing, towards the end
when all the listing said was timed out, the strength shot up to 100%????

Now this morning I still have not got any BBC 1-4 radio listings, yet I
would have expected them to appear overnight?

Any help from the list will be greatly appreciated
