MikeP: After re-processing about 30,000 comments, I have pulled apart the system that allowed the use of brackets at the end of a post for postcode system re-direction.

You can now end with a close bracket :-)

Bob Loader: That does remind me about writing properly about how poor hearing causes problems for some people and how hard they relate to what is, for everyone else, a pleasurable and stimulating experience.

KEVIN GARDINER: I can't see how you would get any change to the DVB-T2 HD broadcasts because of the DAB system, they are unrelated.

However, the DVB-T2 system is backed up from the Intelsat 907 satellite. It could be that there are only stereo channels on the backup system.

The Intelsat 907 signals are only used when the bi-routed main fibre-optic feeds to the site are unavailable. It could be - and this is speculation - that there are power issues, or that the HD channels are being taken from 11495.00 on Intelsat 907.
