Got a strange one here. My Humax Fox-T2 has decided it doesn't like COM7 on Ch.32. All other muxes SD and HD are fine and the Toshiba TV(at the end of a daisy chain from the same antenna as the Humax) registers perfect signal from Emley Moor Ch32 and all programmes. The Humax doesn't even register any signal present on Ch32. I think I've got Humax stumped as well.
Also why can't any historical pages of comment be accessed on this page?

Yes I have to report that at 13:00 today Ch.32 was ignored by my HDR-FOX-T2 but having done nothing in the interim, at 14:00 Ch.32 was suddenly recognised with 55% signal and 100% quality. I had sent emails to both Arqiva and DigitalUK, the latter recommended by Humax, but have had no replies. The Toshiba TV at the end of the daisy-chain from the one antenna was registering 31db C/N ratio and BER 0 throughout the period for Ch.32. Yesterday I set up a temporary antenna pointing at Bilsdale and although was only 5feet above ground level the PVR resolved COM7 and COM8 with no problem on Chs 31 and 37 respectively so some odd sculduggery has been going on at Emley.

MikeP - 'TV perfect signal' didn't you read? Also the historical page links don't work on any PC I try. You always get the most recent page.

Just a historical correction and possibly of only academic interest but I don't think YTV ever operated from Bilsdale although I think that was what was planned by the ITA 1970 handbook but by the time it was equipped, the plan was changed I believe and Tyne-Tees was given it. At no time did it belong to Granada/ABC though.

Harrogate Hildebrand DAB transmitter is located between Scotland and Northern Ireland according to your site. Also Emley Moor comment page history not working - selecting any earlier page gives only most recent entries so not possible to follow a thread. This doesn't happen with Belmont's page, historcal pages can be selected.

Still works for me. In fact there are more(but not necessarily useful) options on the 'secret' screen.
