    sounds like it been a long time since you've used teletext. very good now no looking at the No's at the top of the page waiting for the next screen to appear, however if you want that retro look just go on teletext holidays (you'll think its the eight's again)

    I did have Teletext Plus on my TUTV pvr's, this had colour photo's and music, but not much else.

    Does the red button work with the BBC HD channels? as I only have the four HD channels tuned in.

    I'm still not getting it here, I've only got the four HD channels tuned into my box, so perhaps that is why it is not working for me.
