I'm sick and tired of getting poor reception with digital TV. Never had any problems with analogue, but since we've gone digital, we've suffered regular reception problems with MUX2.

I thought the recent total lack of signal on our main living room TV was due to work being undertaken on the Sutton Coldfield transmitter (we completely lost MUX2 signal nearly all day Monday). However, it now says there is no work being carried out and no faults... but we still keep losing reception on all channels on MUX2.

While this does not seem to be such a problem with the portable TVs in our bedrooms, even those pictures tend to stop and stutter on MUX2.

Had to watch the England match on a bloody 14" screen. Very dissatisfied with digital in general and the quality of MUX2 in particular.

And how bad is it that we are never told about work being carried out. You think the very least they could do would be to inform us about it via our TVs so we don't all start suspecting our equipment, looking for faults that don't exist - or worse still buying new aerials or equipment.

Would you believe it, Dave! Though BBC was good at C43, ITV was indeed tuned to C23. Did what you said and this time it automacially tuned to C43, so hopefully things are going to be better from now on. Signal strength and quality now both 100%, whereas before the quality was constantly fluctuating between 20 - 60%.

It never occurred to me that I had somehow tuned to a weaker signal on certain channels, because of cause it's all automatic. I guess the whole of MUX2 was coming from Wrekin.

All this time and suffering and it was such a simple fix!

Thanks again, Dave.
