Carys: A check on the William Hepburn's tropospheric ducting forecast chart shows that it is quite likely out of area signals could be reaching North Wales at the present time which would account for reception of the NW region transmissions being subject to interference. When the weather conditions change reception will return to normal, however over the next few days reception is likely to vary even hour by hour.

KMJ,Derby: Thank you! Hope they get better soon as re-tuning is a pain and setting up timer recordings is just pot luck at the moment will just have to put up with the Welsh service for now.

Once again I am asking this question, When will West-Wales receive the full allocation of Freeiew channels. It's a shame that some people cannot afford SKY transmissions, I know that Freesat is available free, but the cost of purchasing receivers & dishes are not cheap. Please for everybody sake hurry up with the modifications to the relay transmitters.

In the Daily Mail weekend guide it lists Drama Freeview as Channel 20. I live in London WC2 and get no reception for Drama Freeviewl

Keith Nickol: If you are receiving Freeview from the Crystal Palace transmitter then either go into your TV or boxes set up menu / tuning and select "update channels", or alternatively carry out a "manual tune" on mux Ch25 and this should correct the problem.

By the way, EPG 20 the Drama channel is on the same mux transmitter as ITV3.

John H Williams : As you would appear to be receiving Freeview from the Dolgellau PSB only station then the simple answer to your question is that the situation will not change as far as limited channels are concerned, the reason basically being that these missing channels are all profit making commercial channels which are only being transmitted in the first place by the main stations because the returns expected from advertising exceeds the running costs of the service, however in areas such as yours the reverse of the situation applies due to the limited number of homes served by the transmitter whereby the costs of running the service would outweigh the returns expected.

Its exactly the same situation why major retailers generally decline invitations to open a store in small area, i.e: they would be running at a loss from day one.

Pointing at Durris in AB24... And I'm picking up a German DTT mux (WDR/MDR/BR). Weather maybe?!

Anyone using the 'Bedmond' (Hemel Hempstead) relay and having problems?
Ch55 not working
Ch50 low quality
Ch44 low signal and low quality
etc.

no reported problems and it seems no way to report problems these days.
Tried 3 TV and 2 different aerials so I don't think it's us.
