published on UK Free TV

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.

Paul, George

I wouldn't get too excited. When your normal reception of a missing mux is just below the critical level it only needs a slight change from atmospheric conditions to make it appear. Your gain is likely only temporary.

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.

You are quite right . My elation was premature , and the " NO SIGNAL " message came back on my screen 2 days later when tuning into 'Film 4' and 'Yesterday'

Spoke too soon - looks like they're b****ring about with it again. Quest (CH38) has been up and down like a "lady of the night's" draws today.....

Anybody else got problems with 5* breaking and freezing after the Sudbury retune yesterday? My aerial is Triax black 11 element only 6 years old, situated in the valley at Chappel. Great to see the return of film 4.

Peter: Ensure that 5* is tuned to C58 which is the signal from Sudbury. This information is usually given on the signal strength screen.

If it's not, post what it is and I will see if I can suggest a workaround.
