Catherine: MuxArqB which carries Film4 switches to high power working at Winter Hill on 21st September 2011. There is currently a power restriction to reduce interference with MuxD from Sutton Coldfield which shares the same frequency until that date. If you are having problems with ITV2 does that include ITV1, C4 and C5 as these all share the same high power mux?
