Tony jones: BBC4 HD is on the Com 8 mux, which that transmitter does not have, not the Com7. But it does have pretty much everything else, and of course is not a 'light' transmitter. So yes, it is officially a full transmitter.

Freeview Guide + EPG stopped working early February 2018 No previous problems since digital started. Just have slow now & next display. Have had 2 new channels update and have also have tried deleting all channels and rescanning. On aerial using Midhurst transmitter. I am in RH1 4JR South Nutfield Surrey, in my location Midhurst is only signal usable. External aerial with booster on roof, was replaced 3-4 years ago. Has the EPG info been removed or changed, no problems until the first channels update early Feb? All TV reception, text etc otherwise fine
