Psohlavec: I agree entirely with you and I don't like the sound of the .

The changeover has been a shambles, there's been no advanced warnings as in the case of previous re-tuning alerts but this time it's not a simple case of re-tuning either. My current (Group A) aerial can't get a signal from UHF 56 mux at all. BBC Four HD (TV Ch 106) and some other HD channels are on the COM8 multiplex which has moved to UHF channel 56 from 21st March onwards.

I complained to Freeview who offered to send an engineer to instal a wideband aerial free of charge but refused to reimburse me if I bought and fitted my own. They've been inundated with calls and the soonest they could send an engineer to me is in two weeks time (April 11th) so I'm going to do it myself anyway.

The more people who complain the better; I've also complained directly to matt.hancock.mp@parliament.uk; Head of the Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the department ultimately responsible for this badly handled and inept 700Mhz clearance policy.
