For the last six years, I have answered many thousands of personal emails that you have sent to UK Free TV.

Sadly, I am unable to offer this personal service at the moment.

Until I can restore this service, please can you leave any questions you have on an appropriate page, where they will be answered as soon as possible, or below, if you can't figure out where to ask.

I look forward to your questions!

Jasper Gee: Emley Moor should provide you with the strongest and most stable signal, your aerial should be pointing WNW with the rods horizontal.
Did you do a Full Reset/New install initially with the aerial unplugged - this clears the set of all previous settings/channels. Please follow the procedure on this page My Freeview box has no EPG, is blank on FIVE, ITV3, ITV4, ITV2+1, has no sound or the channel line up is wrong | - independent free digital TV advice
If you do a manual tune, for Emley Moor you should be using UHF channels C44,C47,C48,C51,C52 (& C41 if you have an HD tuner).
If this doesn't fix your problem & if you are using an aerial booster, connect your aerial direct to your set and remove the booster and try again.

Briantist: Digital UK's postcode checker is now showing 'COM Mux FEC Change' on various muxes at various sites, over the next couple of months. Hovering over ArqB for The Wrekin shows a change from 64QAM 2/3 to 64QAM 3/4.

It's possible that this will be accompanied by an increase in the guard interval, aiming to improve coverage by turning co-channel interference into SFN; I notice that Hannington and Crystal Palace now show all three COM muxes going to 64QAM 3/4 at switchover, and CP COMs are co-channel with Rowridge. The net capacity is likely to be the same, if that's the case.

64QAM 3/4 8K 1/8 has a fraction more capacity - 24.88 Mbps - than 64QAM 2/3 8K 1/32 (24.13 Mbps).

freddie: The regional variations you receive are down to the postcode that the viewing card in the receiver was sent to.
