BBC4 HD is now carried on COM8 and requires a TV that is Freeview HD capable. Depending on which transmitter you are using, you may b=need a different aerial as many now broadcast it on Channel 56, and some need a wideband aerial to receive that.

In Plymouth I receive BBC4 HD on Com 8 from Caradon, using a wideband (colour code black) antenna in the loft.
Until earlier this year all was fine but then the signal started dropping out, with my YouView box showing only around 30% signal strength at the worst times, compared with 98+ % for channels not on Com8.
During the recent dry weather the signal strength has increased to 50% and the problems have gone away for now.
I notice that the transmitter power on Com8 is much lower that for the other multiplexes. Is the poor reception a common problem for Caradon users? What can be done?
