So - here we go again... I can only presume the intermittent problems we have been having here (WR14 in Malvern) with Freeview is due to the engineering work; but it would be really useful to have advanced warning. Is this ever likely to be the case? That way I could have used my time this evening more productively. I can't believe there isn't some way of using a teeny bit of the bandwidth to alert users to the potential of singal breakup or loss.
Does anybody have any experience of a successful communication with Arqiva on the issues of transmitter work forecasts and updates? It looks from their websites as if they don't want to be bothered by the public, and I get the impression so far that the attitude is 'it's free - so what have you got to complain about?'
Don't ask.

Is anyone else reporting issues with the Sutton Coldfield Tx? We are at WR 14 4NA and usually get a good signal on all channels but now have nothing showing on PSB3 or LB multiplexes. TV and radio channels on other frequencies seem good. No engineering work seems to be reported but something has changed since earlier today. (Annoyingly just after the Rugbymatch started!)
