Switchover starts in Norfolk

J Dagless ?EUR" It cannot be nothing wrong with the roll-out as it is a steady stable signal here just outside Norwich.

I have had the TV on for over an hour now testing on Ch50 Mux D AqivaB there is 100% signal strength and quality with no error correction showing it is rock steady.

Did you get all the muxes before switchover and are your other muxes OK at the moment?

Could it be some nearby electrical interference causing problems on that frequency like a mobile phone nearby.

Glen ?EUR" I have been watching BBC Parliament since 12.00 and I have just checked other BBC channels and everything appears normal. I have just done a scan and both the BBCA mux on 55 and all other muxes are coming through 100% signal strength and quality.

The mast was supposed to be removed by the end of 2013, but apparently the last I heard was that it would now be removed before the end of January 2014, probably the delay was weather related

Hi Michael Wong, in answer to your question, April 2014, according to this very site see Com 7 by scrolling back to near to the top where you will see the info among all the different channel logos.

Archant's Mustard TV now has a still promo page on Channel 8 (retune required on most TVs) on air from 5.30pm this coming Monday, March 24th. From the epg they appear to be just broadcasting evenings from 5.30pm until just after 10pm

Channel 791 now has POP broadcasting 24/7 and Channel 64 is broadcasting BonanzaBonanza, all channels on LCN57.

Yes Bob, Mustard TV has a strange footprint strong to the NE of Taccy but very little to the south, obviously not wanting to conflict with Waltham. I suppose it does what it is supposed to do, covering Norwich and immediate suburbs. I live 8 miles west of Norwich the signal strength is a bit down on the other muxes but quality is coming in 100%. I believe from reports the reception is better than that of the expected footprint.
