Freeview UK ITV4 missing on HVR 900 OK on WINTV

Hi there
When staying in Central Manchester UK I seem to miss ITV4 when using Windows Media center.

I'm near the top of a large hotel just off Piccadilly Bus station so it's not a reception problem.

Using the Hauppage WIN TV 7 application it finds it without any problem --same antenna, computer, USB stick.

I prefer the WMC application as the EPG Guide is a lot better. (For Composite however I still use the Win TV app as I can't get composite option on WMC - my version of the USB stick has a composite input option as well - useful for external inputs like DVD / video player, satellite receiver, digicams etc).

Maybe a manual tune might work -- anybody know the Frequency (Central Manchester)

Cheers

Hi Swarfega
The Hauppage WIN TV app is fine - it's Windows Media Center that misses the station.

(Driver, Application and Windows are all up to date)

I even plugged in the cable to the Hotel's TV socket as a test - caused an alarm with a couple of security gorilla's rushing up to my room when I unplugged the TV as they thought I was going to run off with their nice large LCD TV. .
Still no joy with WMC on that channel.

Mabe only UK nationals can watch it !.

Cheers
