Hello - based in WR4 0DJ, with Bromsgrove signal. Aerial is in the loft (which I'd imagine is going to be prime culprit for attack!)

Before switchover today, we had the channels on (what is now) BBCA and ArqB; today, we have a net gain as we now have all the BBCA, D3+4, SDN and ArqA channels. However ArqB is totally gone in its new position. Is this something expected, based on the new multiplex channels? It's only a pity because we used to like having ITV4 and Yesterday!

Apart from that, the signal isn't too shoddy considering; though it seems to go "blocky" every half an hour or so, which seems oddly like a pattern. Nothing that could cause interference in the house, though, so can't quite work out why.

I know something I forgot to mention: our set top box is a cheap one, and just to be irritating doesn't have a manual retune option; only automatic.
