Minor changes to commercial multiplexes at 11 masts this week
There are going to be some minor changes to the "forward error correction" parameter of some of the commercial multiplexes this week, the assist with reception improvements.
Under most circumstances your Freeview box should work with no changes, you may just see the "If you find you are missing channels, please re-tune your Freeview TV or box" message.
If you do find that the commercial multiplexes no longer work as you expected, on the dates shown, then perform a "first time installation" to restore the channels.

Always welcome your very helpful comments, both general and specific. Our situation at L37 1PZ is that we have the original aerial at low height on a bungalow. We can receive all digital programmes except those on Arq B Mux and the reception check shows this location as clear, although there are some "blank" areas nearby on the reception map for Winter Hill. We accept that we may need to upgrade the aerial, and increase its height, and could do the installation ourselves, but do not know whether to get a high gain, wideband or group C/D. Can you help please.
