Doug Fry: Hi Doug. I notice that the 562.0 MHz frequency from Sandy Heath carries the COM7 multiplex and that it is transmitted at roughly 1/3 of the power of the more powerful multiplexes which are transmitted at 170,000 kW from Sandy. It would be interesting to know how this channel normally comes into your receiver at your location. By the way, are you aware that there have been high pressure atmospheric conditions which have been affecting viewers' Freeview reception since the evening of Sunday 5th. June and through much of the day yesterday? If your channel losses are a consequence of the high pressure, all you can do is to wait until the atmospheric pressure lowers: you could study the weather forecast inbetweentimes! Richard, Norwich

Now that BBC3 HD has gone online , why does the BBC not enable BBC4 HD in its place.
? It would enable users in my area of East Sussex to get this popular channel in HD on freeview.

joanna s : Hi, Joanna. The channel vacated by BBC3 HD was given to Channel 5HD, now on 105, where I believe BBC3HD used to be. BBC4HD is on Freeview HD, channel number 106, carried by the group of channels or 'multiplex called 'COM7' or 'ArqC'. The difficulty viewers such as yourself may experience is that COM7 is not carried by all Freeview transmitters. If, for example, you were to be living in the Lewes area of East Sussex, you would be using the Lewes relay tv transmitter, which only carries three groups of channels: PSB1 (aka BBCA), PSB2 ( aka D3+4) and PSB3 (aka BBCB). As you may know, PSB1 carries BBC1,BBC2, BBC4, CBBC, CBeebies, BBCNews, BBC Parliament and BBC Radio stations. The tv channels in this group are all transmitted in standard definition (SD).PSB2 carries ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, ITV2, More4, Film4, ITV4, E4, ITV+1 andFreeview Info screen, again, all in SD. Finally, PSB3 carries: BBC1HD, BBC2HD, ITVHD, Channel 4 HD and Channel Five HD, so the BBC were gracious enough to give up what, as you say, could have been theirs, to Channel Five! Hope this enlightens you sufficiently! Any queries, come back for more info! Richard, Norwich.

Thank you. What a waste. Who watches channel 5????
BBC4 is a vastly superior channel with content such as the recent fabulous serious about China which cries out for HD to get full benefit.

joanna s : Who watches Channel 5? Its got about a 4% audience share last week in total , so a little behind C4. Frankly, C5 in HD has been long overdue.

I love BBC4, but if its not transmitting currently in HD, you have some choices. Its not impossible you might be able to get it via another transmitter, or you could go for Freesat (a good option for anyone in a Freeview lite area), or stream it in HD via Iplayer.
