    can only listen to certain radio programmes while recording TV

    Actually, I'm an OAP, rather than an OP - this is why nothing new like this sticks in my brain any more :-((

    can only listen to certain radio programmes while recording TV

    At 12.40, Bargain Hunt and Radio 3 were competing for a while, then Bargain Hunt seemed to win out and I could no longer connect to Radio 3 703 (no access sign in top right of screen)

    can only listen to certain radio programmes while recording TV

    Have set it up, but it'll have to compete with my cleaning lady and the vacuum! And me being upstairs working. I'll be back I'll download the first file on my tablet now that I'm wise and know "frequency" equates to transponder. I' still clueless about H and V - should both of my tuners show H?

    When you get back, Graham, can you give me another set? By the time I found your message, it was 10.58 and the thing takes so long to boot up that it was too late. (It's always seemed strange to me that I've never ever had a conflict warning on setting up recordings, but do get them from preset...

    can only listen to certain radio programmes while recording TV

    Hi Black Hole, Point A is partially right. The OP is only going by the very vague information in the Foxsat manual =- "you can record two channels simultaneously" and "Recording 2 channels may be limited depending on your connections from the satellite dish; 2 feeds from the dish are required...

    For all frequency groups in your file except one or two, when I typed in the number from your file list and pressed OK, I went straight to the broadcast. For the other one or two, I was taken to the corresponding number in theList that you get if you press the "List" button, rather than...

    OP says that, if he starts a recording on 101, he can listen to Radio 3 and 4

    Yes, all the transponder groups work in both configurations (though either 1 or 2 took me to the channel in the List, rather than straight to the channel)

    can only listen to certain radio programmes while recording TV

    First, I did download the file. So the rather rude "If not, why not?" doesn't apply. The file is total gibberish to me. I've no idea what a transponder is - I was confusing it with "tuners" that you mentioned earlier and thought I had 2 transponders, not dozens of the things. I'll work through...

    can only listen to certain radio programmes while recording TV

    So I tried 104 and 750 and both worked (typed in). Powered off and switched connections and both worked. I've actually forgotten what we are trying to solve now! It just occurred to me that scrolling up with the channel button only scrolls through say TV channels and I have to change to radio...

    Hi Graham, Yes, 102 is BBC2 HD. If I tune in to it and press opt+, how do I tell which transponder it is? Is "10847 MHz, v, 23000, 2/3" relevant? Is "v" = vertical = one of the transponders? Which missing channels do you want me to check for with no recording? For instance, there is no 111 in...

    can only listen to certain radio programmes while recording TV

    Yes, there are two cables - I had to have the second added when I moved from a Toppy box and Freeview and they go to the two outside sockets of the 3. The box shows Fixed Antenna and Two cables (same). Do I need to do the Factory Reset or not? If not, any ideas on what I need to do? If the...

    Will do the required fiddling - it's supposedly set up by a "satellite man" when I changed from a Toppy box and Freeview. I also asked myself why I recorded them from different channels and the answer is I don't know! - I'll change to HD
