Sudbury Arqiva multiplex B changes 16 November - retune required
After 6am 16th November 2011, viewers in Suffolk and Essex who receive the full Freeview service from the Sudbury transmitter will need to do a full retune of their Freeview boxes - you must perform a "first time installation" retune (sometimes "Factory Reset" or "Shipping Condition") to ensure you can watch the all the available Freeview channels on the correct channel numbers.
The ArqB multiplex is moving from C50 to C63 for seven months. There will be no changes to the power level or transmission mode parameters of the service. C50 is required for the ArqB at the Tacolneston transmitter digital switchover next wednesday.
Sudbury not see the commercial multiplexes operating at their final power levels until 27th June 2012. On this date SDN will move to C58, ArqA to C60 and ArqB to C56. Until this time some viewers on the edges of the service area for the transmitter will be unable to receive the commercial services.
drgeoff : Very true, hence "for the moment" LOL
It does seem a tad strange though that through a wide variety of atmospheric conditions since 16th November ("a day that will live in infamy" hehehehe), there's been not a flicker of the mux. Then all of a sudden on Thursday 19th evening, it appears.
