For some years, the graphics for UK Free TV have been hosted in the freeview.tv domain, which has a different IP address from ukfree.tv, which allows the web browser to maintain connection and stops the unnecessary transfer of cookies to the graphics site.
However, ukfree.tv and freeview.tv are actually hosted on the same machine; this means the load had to be shared: this was resulting in page loading times of several seconds at times.
I have now moved the graphics web-server (called img.freeview.tv) to the AWS service, and this has reduced the load on the main ukfree.tv server, leading to page load times of less than one second.
I hope this speed increase makes ukfree.tv a better experience.
Regarding Walthamtransmitter, this has been a "heap" since it was built and the mast fell down.
Freeview - is now a major problem with some viewers since full power started freeview boxes crash due to now two strong signals are received ie. Waltham and Belmont.
Why are many channels still on low power ?
Picturequality is very poor compared with analogue and no doubt will reduce further when HD starts. This change over was not planned and tested why ? you are trying to sort out the mess but without any luck.
Why are there intermittant loss of sound (on all channels and on different TV's and different freeview boxes in different locations.Freeview NEVER reply to complaints.
