Thanks Billy

This is just ridiculous.
After switchover most channels were about ok.

Whatever they did just this week has killed all BBC and some other channels.

When I say channel 42 I dont just mean TV channel I mean (i think its called) BAND 42

That is frequencies 640 and above (2 blocks of them - loads of TV channels)

I've recorded the signal levels bouncing up and down from zero to 70ish percent both power and quality in an mpeg - I can post
it if theres somewhere to send it - the video clearly shows the other blocks
being quite stable at about 60% power 100% quality so its not an aerial or weather issue nor the fabled cross channels issue because the swing is far too high

The 4 HD channels play OK at about 40-45% power and 100% quality and are stable.

They did something this week and the kids dont get to watch cbeebies as a consequence or any other BBC channel.

Its not as if theres someone you can even report the issue to who can do anything about it.

buyer beware seems to be the "free"view motto

I cant think of anything I can do that could fix this at my end.

I've just worked it out - the ones giving problems are PSB1 and BBCA

Incidently - anyone know why the map on this pages loads then vanishes instantly? The overlays stay visible.
