Change channels on guide?

How do I change my menu to show channels that I have a freeview of? The remote in our bedroom doesn’t have a yellow button, so their instructions are useless for me. & I’m not great with electronics tbh.

Audio drops

Our TV audio drops whenever a commercial comes on and then does not return.  We can get it back by simply pressing any button on the remote, but it is a PIA.  Is this a setting?  Anyone else experiencing this?

Guide page is snowy and can only read the one box that is being viewed.

Guide page is snowy and can only read the box that you are scrolling down.   Can't read channel or anything else.   Will resetting the main box correct this problem?  I tried resetting two of the smaller boxes in other rooms and it did not correct the issue.

Today’s HR44 Update

My HR44was updated to 0xd8f today yet has the traditional Guide.  If indeed the Guide is to be changed it seems strange to receive an intermittent update.  Maybe, just maybe the HR44’s Guide will not be changed! 👍
