Early July, 4TV/Inview discontinued the 14 day EPG service on Freeview. This has rendered thousands of digital PVR recorders near obsolete, most of which will needlessly end up in landfill.\r\n\r\nThis switch off affects PVRs from major manufacturers such as Sony, Thomson, Inview and Digifusion.\r\n \r\nMost of these PVR owners will be disillusioned with Freeview and will be unhappy with the way they have been treated. A large number will defect to alternative systems such as Freesat or Freesat from Sky.\r\n\r\nThis bad feeling is not good for Freeview or digital TV as a whole.\r\n\r\nWe understand that Freeview did not cause this problem, but Freeview could well provide the answer.\r\n\r\nWe, the undersigned therefore petition Freeview to request that they take over provision of the EPG system, previously provided by 4TV/Inview.\r\n\r\nThis could be as simple as the existing 7 day Freeview EPG but re-broadcast in a format that is compatible with our PVR's.\r\n\r\nThis would restore out faith in Freeview, as the 'gatekeepers' of terrestrial DTV in the UK.\r\n\r\nMany thanks,\r\n\r\nDave Hills
