Was surprised to find this week extra channels (ie Capital, LBC) on my Revo K2, indeed looking at this sites DAB reception predictor Kendal is just inside the reception area from Lancaster for the Nth West multiplex, although my aerial needs to be pointing horizontally south

Anyone had problems returning the BBC channels on C60 785.8, have a family member with a Loewe TV that are having problems returning, I'll be having a go at the weekend to sort it out but I had problems returning on my PC app DVBViewer, kept detecting C60 as freq 785.0, I had to hardcode in a setup file C60 785.8.

I'm wondering whether the TV will be similar issue, they've had not problem retuning a sony tv and tried the loewe with that aerial connection to prove it wasn't the aerial that was the issue

Ian- The muxes we're missing hold commercial channels and between them and the transmitter own they don't think the cost of running the muxes versa the available audience is worth it.

We're are being short changes, recommend you write to Tim Farron have him raise the issue

Lancaster (Lancashire, England) DAB transmitter

There's been a dead patch in the DAB signal on the commercial D1 mux between Kendal and Lancaster, starting just outside of a couple miles range of each transmitter. It started from the last major storm in October upto the middle of last week (now resolved). I reported it to DigitalOne 10 days ago and they responded which I heard was an issue for freeview which I've not experiences plus the BBC DAB mux was ok. Could high pressure cause DAB signal issues for 3 weeks?

"Unfortunately, there have been some unusual atmospheric conditions due to the weather and the high pressure was causing problems with both TV and radio reception in your area."

Still on old freeview tv's here so didn't recieve HD mux also More4+1 available.

Would prefer channels like Dave & Quest on mux2 instead of +1 changes

Anyone able to get the HD channels ok from this transmitter C57 (762.0MHz) - note SD channel More4+1 on this mux has the same issue, while it lists the channels upon retune, the signal is next to zero. The retunes to the other mux are ok with 90%+ signal quality.

TV doesn't allow me to manually tune so unable to try against Kendal Fell transmitter.

Here in the south lakes the HD mix appears to not made the switch so we're down to 2 muxes.
