Thanks. Very interesting. I have just set a recording for Endeavour on ITV SD at 8pm on Sunday 10 Jan. It did not offer me the HD alternative.
If ITV provides the link, could it be transmitter dependent? I am on Mendip main transmitter - what are you on?
And do you have a Humax and, if so, does it offer the HD alternative on ITV?
I shall go and check that particular programme now..... HD alternative offered and successfully reserved.
My transmitter is Nottingham (Kimberley) a relay of Waltham. My Humax is a 9200 so not HD I'm afraid.
Now I'm confused
If you have a 9200, how can it offer you the HD transmission to record when it doesn't have an HD tuner?
I'm on the Winter Hill transmitter and just tried to reserve Endeavour on ITV channel 3 on my FVP 4000T and it didn't offer me the HD alternative either and the HD icon doesn't show on the info screen. This was the same with Channel 4 at the same time too.
BBC 1, 2, 3 and 4 however all showed the blue HD icon on the info window and offered the alternative HD recordings.
I am still puzzled as to why you aren't just watching and recording from the the HD channels in the first place.
