This week sees the first stage of the digital television switchover for 387,500 homes in Norfolk.
From 6am Wednesday 9th November 2011, you must perform a "first time installation" retune (sometimes "Factory Reset" or "Shipping Condition") on your Freeview box or television set if you use the Tacolneston full service Freeview transmitter.
Brian: The SDN/Mux A multiplex remains on C31 until 9 May 2012.
C51 is the final location but it is currently in use at Hemel Hempstead and can't be used until after the Londonswitchover is completed on 18 April. I'm not sure what the reason for the three-week delay is. Possibly the programme of Olympic test events between 18 April and 8 May (the broadcasters are likely to need a degree of stability to test their equipment before the Olympics proper start at the end of July).
Adam, thanks for pointing that out (I was aware just copied the wrong channel from my spreadsheet, which shows the mux channels and the change over dates) SDN ch 51 18th April 2012. Thanks for keeping an eye out though.
Best regards to all
Brian(tist) - FYI, so far all is OK out here in the sticks near N Walsham. Mildly odd is that the BBC TV mux (C55) is at a slightly lower (displayed) signal strength than the others. Propagation quirk maybe. Still, it works fine at c.60% strength 100% quality.
