I agree with the previous comments about lost muxes and also the information on the Durris transmitter is incorrect as ArqA com 5 must be transmitted at a higher power than mux A and Arqb com 6 as they are on channels 51 and 52 and are no longer showing as any kind of signal that transferers to a watchable picture but channel 41 is acceptable. I have my aerial installer coming back even though my new aerial installation is now weeks out of warranty this for the second time and Iam sure this will soon stop or I will be charged for the visit. Do the installers know what is happening at Durris does anybody ? Can someone advise what to expect and when as Iam sure that Iam not alone in having an aerial installation carried out prior to DSO and finding that I might be left no better off. My post code is AB24 4DQ

Briantist; I note your comments but I cannot seem to reconcile the fact that on this site it states that ArqA broadcast on ch41 is listed as transmitting power as 5000watts as does for ArqB however A is at 20000 watts this would lead me to think that I would have a better chance of getting decent reception on A but that is not the case as I do not now get any reception on CH 51 52 but get adequate reception on CH41 which includes Sky news and Sky 3 can you please advise if my logic is correct in this or am I missing the obvious. I also note that Ch 44 is the main ITV channels and CH 46 is the BBC channels they seem to be from Balgownie. I have tried manual tune missing out CH 44 and 46 but still cannot access CH51 52. Any advice would help.
