Rowridge (Isle Of Wight, England) transmitter

Can anyone check something for me please.

I'm on Rowridge HP and I'm getting the RT channel in 4:3 aspect ration whereas it should be 16:9 and also Film4+1 seems to show16:9 in 14:9 ratio.

I'm using a set top box with my tv and I've tried a backup box and get the same result.

This has been going on since last Thursday and I'm beginning to wonder if my tv might be on the blink.

Both these channels are COM6 so it could be something funny is going on there as I don't have a problem with other channels on that COM so is it my tv or is it them?

Dave Lindsay: Thanks very much for he check.

It appears this is a nationwide glitch then so I wonder what's going on?

I'll try a bit of Googling and see if I can find anything that might throw some further light on it.

Bit of a relief to know it's not only me anyway.

Thanks again.

Interesting to read this Mr Mel Watch.

I've been having trouble with AM Radio 5 Live from Fareham for about two weeks now. Signal volume is well down with distortion for me (I live in Eastleigh.) It used to blast through.

I thought my lovely old Roberts Radio was on the way out but now I know it isn't.

How one notifies the BBC Engineering people about such things is beyond me. How did you do it as I'll moan at them as well.

I've given up on Dab. I've tried three brands of Dab sets in my house and can't get a signal in my kitchen or living room which is where I do my radio listening.
