The red button option no longer seems to works on the BBC channels which are fed from Astra 2A/2B (but not 2D), like BBC News and BBC Parliament? So if you can't receive Astra 2D then you can't access BBC Sport via red button anymore. Is my thinking right? Is there another way of getting BBC Sport Red Button options when signal from 2D is too weak?

Hi sykblueboy,

That's what I normally do but pressing the red button on remote doesn't do anything anymore. The remote itself is still functioning so it can't be flat batteries so I'm thinking it's a software change. What BBC channel were you on when you press the red button?

The box may have partially crashed. Pull the plug out of the wall for a couple of minutes & retry.

I just noticed that the BBC red button doesn't seem to work from a BBC channel added by the ADD CHANNELS menu option, but it does work if I goto the same BBC channel in the auto tuned list. Hope I'm making sense. Anyway I'm sorted. Thanks for the responses.
