Brian Hudson: I presume you mean "can't get COM5 channels" since the Mendip change on 28th Sept. See my reply on the Mendip board.

All: Sky News did seem to disappear for a while from the Freeview MUX, I don't know the reasons, but it has been back now at Mendip for a while. The way Sky text is being presented has changed, and if you are not careful you miss the fact there there is still some news headlines available.

What's happened with the latest upgrade to the transmitter? I have always received sky news on freeview and for the last week I have not been able to receive it. I thought the power output was being increased.

T Gillmore: Can you supply more information such as your postcode or which transmitter you are using? The frequency of the mux which carries Sky News was changed and power increased at both Sandy Heath and Tacolneston last week.

The last four days we have good picture quality, but the sound breaking up on Sky News, Really (channel 20) and Pick (channel 11). It would appear that server 45 is the problem which services the above channels. Is anyone experiencing similiar problems on these channels? We are situated very close to the four oaks sutton coldfield transmitter.

michael bladen: This strongly suggests that your dish as moved slightly out of alignment which has possibly been caused by high blustery winds, and should the alignment problem apply it most likely being in the horizontal plane, i.e: moving to left or right.

The other possibility is that the coax connection to the LNB on the dish is defective, so this would require checking.
