Freeview channels missing on some devices
I'm in the process of giving up on Virgin Media, I have just taken out a Three 5G home broadband contract which so far is working fine. My issue is with replacing the Virgin TV channels with Freeview.
I have 2 TVs and an inherited Humax Freeview DVR.
TV1 (Panasonic TX32CS510B) upstairs has been using Freeview from new and has a full complement of channels as far as I'm aware.
TV2 (Panasonic TXL42E6B) downstairs has always been connected to Virgin Media, having connected it to the aerial and done an automatic scan the EPG shows some channels but not all (for example, E4 is missing)
Humax box (HDR-2000T 500GB) has been unused since my mum died 2 years ago but I plugged it into the same aerial lead as I tried with TV2 and it has loaded the same channels as TV2 found. Thinking it might be an issue with the lead from the aerial to downstairs I repeated the scan using the aerial upstairs, but it still only found the same subset of channels (in fact, the first time I scanned it failed to find any HD channels, but a second scan added those). After seeing a suggestion on the Freeview site I did a scan with the aerial disconnected to clear the box memory then scanned again but it made no difference.
Clearly the aerial is receiving all channels, as shown by TV1, can anyone suggest a reason why TV2 and the Humax box are failing to find the same list of channels as TV1?
