Are you sure the SCART output is still 'HD'? When I used the SCART output of my Pace HD satellite
receiver to record an HD signal on my standard definition Hard drive recorder, it was recorded as a
downscaled service.

Only a guess, but could be the first hint of BBC1 HD becoming regionalised on the terrestrial platform
so if you can't receive HD channels on Freeview. you need a new Freeview box, PVR or TV.
It was said that the upgrading would be before April.

StevensOnln1: I did say 'if'. There could be some people like me who have a non DVB-T2 PVR
which has never been replaced(mine is kept for some of its old content and nothing else) and
it is their only programme recording means. I have had a DVB-T2 PVR since digital switch-over.
There is hopefully a start to the trend of replacing the original DVB specs. by S2 and T2 services.
Given how long 405 lasted after 625 duplication, there could be some time to wait.

StevensOnln1: I never said they would lose anything but now they have a reason to upgrade.
