Over the last week bbc1hd Channel 101 picture has kept breaking up, this doesn't seem to be happening on any other channels, and i can watch the local bbc1hd Channel with no issues! Anyone else getting iisues with Channel 101?
Your post appears a little confusing - you report BBC1-HD on 101 is breaking up, yet "i can watch the local bbc1hd Channel with no issues". BBC1-HD is BBC1-HD, there's no separate local version.
Pixellation & picture breakup is usually a signal fault, so the standard advice applies here as much as anywhere. If you've rebooted your box once, then there's likely a fault somewhere, so this will need VM to intervene. You're likely to need either an engineer visit or a replacement box, depending on what VM's remote diagnostics turn up.
First check the automated faults line for any existing issues in your area that could be the cause: 0800 5610061. If nothing's reported, assume VM don't know about your fault and ideally you'll need to call them.
150 from a VM phone, 0345 4541111 from any other phone - choose the options for "I have a fault with my TV service". Alternatively you can wait on here for staff to respond, which may take a day or so.
Ah, the BBC regional versions. Using that is a good workaround if you have a signal problem on 101. If you set any BBC1 series links to "all channels" they will tend to pick up the 86x versions also.
You can always revert those SL's to single-channel BBC1HD once the signal fault is resolved.
Sorry to hear of the issues with BBC 1 HD, we appreciate you raising this via the forums.
We have tried to look into this but the box is currently showing as offline, is it turned off at present or is this maybe part of the issue? If you could let us know and we can then look into this further.
