We are served by the Crystal Palace transmitter here near Orpington and have a new Humax PVR.

Before the switch off of BBC2 analogue all was working well. When it was switched off all channels deteriorated, the reception being sometimes better from both Cambridge and Anglia. We decided to wait until the switch off on the 18th to see if things improved.

During the day it is fine, 81% signal strength on all channels and 100% quality, but in the evening, although the signal strength stays the same, the quality fluctuates continually between 40% and 100%, making it almost unwatchable.

I have checked your site for an answer. We have switched off all lokley culptites suich as central heating to no avail.

Does anyone else have this problem?

We don't have HD but the problem is on all channels. I don't watch much during daytime but find the problem also exists then to a lesser degree.

Sometimes it is better to watch the transmission from Cambs and Beds.

I see a Humax update is due to be transmitted over the air at the end of the week. I don't suppose this will help.
