Has anyone had difficulty receiving Mux SDN recently, with all the good weater. I have had virtually zero signal for early morning reception, for what is usually an acceptable signal strength/quality?

I note no engineering work has been reported, so I assume it isn't just down to that.

I didn't realise there was any analogue left in the area. Yes, thatcould be it.


Thank you for your help - the signal levels after about 9:00 am over the weekend, returned to normal, it was purely the early hours that seemed to be effected. At the moment, there arn't any problems in getting a good picture with PC TV Cards, but scanning has proved difficult, since poor quality has limited the info. tables to PMT only - the remainder resolvable.

I am totally at a loss with the changes, just what sgnals need boosting still, and which could do with attenuation. What I thought was a working system, has now proved to have flaws in it - I had hoped after switch over, weather variability would no longer apply due to the increased strength. How wrong I appear to have been!

Regards both,

Will there be any way to record from the new Box, for programmes streamed, ie services such as iPlayer, which output is somewhat difficult to archive (the DRM protection limits the time the recordings on a computer can be watched)?

If you cannot actually record to the Humax HDD, then would it be at least possible to record via the (assumed) HDMI output, or even SCART/Composite output?
