We're having problems receiving the BBCA multiplex from Mendip on C49 here in Bradley Stoke as well. Signal level is unchanged (c90%) but quality has dropped to <30% on C49 compared to >80% on C61. Reading are based on the output of my TBS6284 PCIe card's drivers - YMMV.

I've tried bypassing the masthead amp/splitter (no change) and also changing the gain. Lowering the gain didn't help and increasing it just made things worse! In my mind, this points to some level of interference on C49.

I can get a reliable picture on one freeview box and several PCIe TV tuners, but not on others. Presumably because they have better quality RF stages / more sensitive tuners.

No problems with the SDN mux on C48.
