Mendip transmitter - January 11th retune required | TV channels

Until recently I was able to access Film 4, after reading this sites posts and reviewing the Mendip changes that this is probably my problem.

It may not be your problem but can you kindly advise the contact e-mail and telephone numbers to whom I can address my complaint.

I understand that the change will be in excess of -3db - that means the signal strength is reduced by 1/2 and that a large number of people will be affected due to this.

Quite frankling this fu...ing abdictaion of responsibility is what really gets up my nose.

Finally I want to add that I have e-mailed the new CEO of Arquiva and also Adam Crozier (CEO of ITV) on the subject.

I urge anyone else who feels pissed off to do the same.

@Briantist - Quote - Some people will find, however, that the change to 64QAM mode (to provide Sky Sport 1 and 2 for BT Vision users) will result in the loss of multiplex COM6/ARQB until later in the year.

Do you really think this is an acceptable situation for the customer?

@Les Nichol - I work in a similar industry to broadcasting, however, the basic principle is that once you deliver a service you do not degrade it. It must stay constant or improve.

We do not yet have an infrastructure in the UK which is capable to run my preferred solution AKA HDTV via ADSL.

I do agree about frustration - but up until now it had been painless.

I see an even more serious problem coming up Digital Radio changeover even tho I received assurances in writing it will never happen from a government official. I will hold them to that since I have no intention of paying the cost for all my radios.

Mind you there is a distinct possibility that radio transmission in any form recognisable will disappear in the not too distant future.

I have just retuned my digi box because Film4 was breaking up and I have now LOST Film4.

Why is this happening, its rubbish, digital is good when its good but when it is marginal its lousy and subject to interruptions. Think I am using Mendip BTW

Analog fades slowly this needs fixing!

OK replace the licence fee with a universal charge BUT ALL terrestrial TV programs (not just BBC) must also be streamed to allow computer use as TV. This would allow all films to be viewed.
