Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Dover transmitter area
Julian Hicks: According to Digital UK, SDN/COM4 will move to UHF 35 on 21st March 2018, with PSB1 moving to UHF 33 in Summer 2019, then finally PSB2/3 & COM5 moving to UHF 35/36 & 42 in late 2019. I suspect this website's database wasn't designed with multiple stepped changes such as this in mind.

David Tyler: PBS America and Forces TV are both on the temporary COM8 multiplex which is broadcast (along with COM7) from 30 main transmitter sites covering around 75% of UK households. Coverage of COM7/8 will not be expanded to any further transmitters and both are expected to close some time between 2020 and 2022. So far the only channel to move from COM7/8 to a multiplex with wider coverage is Talking Pictures, which moved on 30th November 2017. No other broadcasters have made any announcements about what will happen to their channels on COM7/8 long term.

I am experiencing sporadic pixellation on all HD channels from the Dover transmitter (Channel 53). The TV set is under one year old and reception is shown as 100% signal, 100% quality. It was excellent until about late October/early November. Early this year I purchased a Freeview Play recorder and discovered that the HD pictures from this box are perfect, both live and recorded despite the aerial lead being longer and of lower quality to the one to the TV. The aerial is a loft mounted electronic device, the downlead is inside the building feeding through a surge protector, a VHF/UHF splitter, and a 4 way distribution amplifier.
Among other resets and trials I have fitted an attenuator to the TV lead in case signal is too high, I have tried fitting a G4 filter in the feed before the splitter, I have retuned several times and manually tuned the HD channel, I have swapped the feeds from the amplifier, and I have fitted a new spike/surge filter to the mains feed. All to no avail. The software on the TV is up-to-date.
In view of the fact that there are no problems with the Freeview Recorder it would seem that the TV is faulty. Is there anything else I can do to prove it?

Robert August: 100% signal strength is too high and is effectively deafening the tuner. Does your amplifier have a variable gain control? If it does, try turning it down a bit. Where are you fitting the 4G filter? It needs to be before the amplifier, otherwise any unwanted 4G signals will be amplified along with the wanted signals. Retuning will never fix a problem with signal strength being too high or too low as the TV is already correctly tuned and all you are doing is deleting all your channels and searching for them again. Your PVR may have a less sensitive tuner than your TV and may be better coping with the high signal strength.
