I've recently seen adverts saying that the channels "Tiny Pop" and Kix are moving.

Hang on… I don't have those channels. I've retuned (with Channel Organizer). I haven't seen "Tiny Pop" on the list for a few years now, and I've never seen Kix ever on the list.

The only children's channels I have are CBBC, CBeebies, CITV and Pop.

Are there a whole bunch of channels that the Toppy can't receive? Or is this a regional thing? I live in the South West.

Yes. Anything on a DVB-T2 MUX which is used mainly for HD channels but which also can carry SD channels.

As gomezz says, anything on COM7 or COM8. which includes programmes such as Viva, Talking Pictures TV, Vintage TV, Keep It Country and several +1 channels.
TinyPOP & Kix are on the local mux (LCN207 & 8 ) which may not have sufficient signal strength where you are for safe recording.

Thanks for the replies though I'm a little confused. You're saying the Toppy cannot receive anything on the DVB-T2 MUX which is used for HD. But Bizman says something about insufficient signal strength… which would be a different problem and might mean I could get more channels with a better signal?

Since my aerial is currently quite poor I'm wondering if buying a better aerial might remedy this?

.... They are two separate sentences.

1) the toppy can only tune into dvb-t mux's - dvb-t2 mux's cannot be accessed.

2) the local mux is transmitted at a low signal strength, so your toppy may have problems receiving it.
A better aerial may help, but the toppy doesn't like poor signal quality, so it could be a risk tuning into it.

I tried tuning in Tiny Pop and it killed my Toppy, beware that if the signal is poor you will lose everything..
