Is the Virgin box set to output 720p? I think the smaller BV8s are 720p only.

Where did you change the resolution to 720p?

On the Virgin V6 box? On the cheap freeview box? Other device?

How did you connect the cheap freeview box to the BV8?

HDMI? SCART? Other?

In your BV8’s TV TUNER menu, is TV TUNER set to ON and/or is DVB HD set to ON? (See page 24 of the User Guide).

(a) My recollection is that the TV TUNER is for analog transmissions only, not freeview; it is selected with the TV button.

(b) If you have had the DVB HD feature updated, you should select that with the DTV button (unless that button has been re-assigned to another source).

(c) Is your DVB HD module connected internally to the TV, or does it have an external HDMI plug that needs to be plugged in to one of the BV8’s HDMI sockets (like my BeoSystem 3)?

Hi in answer to your question

Tv has been updated to latest software as has the freeview module. I don't use the hdmi as freeview is internal which i select with dtv, freeview is working. We have an hdmi modulator that is connected to the virgin, which allows me to tune in virgin to the freeview, this works on all tvs except the bvis 8-26. I can get sound but no picture. I did try and put the resolution down to 720p on virgin box but same issue

I’m so sorry, Kai. I don’t know what an HDMI modulator is. From your description it sounds a bit like an HDMI matrix, of which I have no experience.

I would check whether your HDMI modulator is able to distribute 720p to your BV8 whilst simultaneously distributing 1080p to your other TVs. But this is speculation.

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will be able to help you.

Hey thanks for the reply, it simply allows yoirnto distribute hdmi via a freeview channel, i seeing it allows 720p output  failing that thits freeview box on the back of the tv
