Mark,

That is almost certainly the case. We are currently sitting under a high pressure system.

We have also lost coverage from the Sudbury transmitter up here in Suffolk.

Roll on the switchover!!

Since switchover on 6th July I have seen several installations where Mux2 (CH56)will not tune in. I have tried removing aerial and re-scanning but no joy. The signal level seems to be quite low - approximately 36% on my Sharp PVR. Is this likely to improve at the second stage on 20th July?

Dale & jb38: Thanks for your comments. It is fair to say that the installations I referred in my post had previously received this MUX with no problem prior to switchover. Hopefully that means all will be restored to normal on the 20th !

For interest I'm running with a DAT75 aerial so that is most likely why my setup still works, albeit with low signal level.

This does not look good. Yesterday I was receiving all digital channels from Sudbury. This morning the ITV / Ch4/Ch5 group was missing, so I retuned (initial installation). Now I can see the EPG and BBC1 interactive button, but get no picture on ANY channel!!

I am using a brand new Sharp TU-T2HR32

I checked signal strength on Manual Tune. Ch41,44,49 are all strong and Ch 50,54 are a bit lower but probably acceptable.

Any ideas what is going on please?

An update to my earlier message. I checked another installation this morning and found the same problem there. But having now returned home my own installation is working correctly.
