Have lost all Mux 2 channels for the past 3 days. This has been happening on and off since Oct 2010, but seemed to be normal for the past month. I'm in Harpenden (between Luton and Hemel on the map) and local aerial installers advise we get a better signal from Crystal Palace despite being in a green zone.

Briantist, thanks for the reply. I've rechecked for local analogue interference, but can't find any culprits. Postcode is AL5 4TP, and local aerial installers have confirmed that signal strengths are often down on what is normal (usually with no alerts that engineering work is taking place). I've assumed that Mux 2 is affected because its signal strength is lower than the others. Could it be that power levels are being tweaked in advance on the Anglia switch-over in 2 months time?
