I'm in the Salford area, and you know what? Movies4Men is always doing this. Works fine for a couple of months, then vanishes for a week or two. Maybe it's something to do with the people who man the transmitters going on holiday or something as simple as that. My guess is normal service will be resumed next week. Until the next time. Probably Easter.

David Anderson, S CRICHTON and others receiving Movies4Men from the Winter Hill transmitter in the North West:

Any apparent intermittent reception is due to the fact that the signal isn't as strong as the main Freeview ones. It is also aimed directionally towards Manchester rather than being the same strength in all directions (it's not omni-directional) from the transmitter.

The reason it "vanishes" is because the signal level has dropped, possibly slightly, and is below that which your receiver requires to resolve a picture. Contrast this with analogue reception where a small reduction in strength would cause a small reduction in quality.

So digital reception appears as "all or nothing", depending on whether the strength is above or below the threshold required.

As the signal for Movies4Men is not equal to the main channels then it is the case that there are those who are definitely served and get a reliable picture all the time; those who don't get it at all, and; those whose picture is intermittent.

4 days ago Why have channels 51 52 56 and 62 gone off Freeview ol6 8rh

Hi All
There are 6 main muxes on Winter Hill but the channels mentioned by S CHRICTON are no longer on them. They are now on a 7th Mux but at much lower power levels so the ability to receive them will depend on your equipment - distance from Winter Hill and the power levels you already receive.

Manually tune to Transmission channel 57 (762Mhz) to regain these channels if you can. Good Luck.

Whether this is permanent or temporary I do not know.

Well, I see Movies4Men 1 and 2 are back, as of last night. And just as the festive season ends. Maybe I was right when I suggested that the loss of these channels was down to engineers knocking off for their hols. I guess that means the channels will next disappear at Easter.

I like the films you show but the sound quality often leaves something to be desired - please, please, please enable subtitles.

Interesting programes but speech level seems to have an auto attenuator running, ie, paragraph starts at an OK level but drops off sharply (am watching The Spitfire) - adds at constant level so I know its not my set up. Very irritating - spoils the channel.

Jo Xenos: Sadly, only a small number of TV Channels are required to add subtitles to the programmes that they broadcast by the rules governing broadcasting. Smaller and/or newer channels like Move Mix are not required to add subtitles. It would cost the channel a significant amount of money to add subtitles of their own to the programmes that they broadcast. So there is no commercial incentive for the channel to add subtitles.

It would require a change in the law to force a TV channel like True Entertainment, Movies4Men, Movie Mix etc. etc. to add subtitles. You could complain to your local MP about the lack of subtitles on many TV channels. At the end of the day it is MP's who create the rules governing TV broadcasting.

The BBC2 TV programme "See Hear" campaigns on issues of importance to deaf and hearing impaired people - perhaps you could ask them to raise the issue direct with the broadcaster and OFCOM on your behalf.

If the target audience of movies for men is the middle aged to elderly viewer, the lack of subtitles is a bad mistake. The sound quality of some of the old films is poor, combine this with hearing deficit suffered by many elderly men and the channel will lose its would be viewers.sponsorship
