This will be good news for those in the Mendip area whose location means they also receive the unwanted Wenvoe signals...Wenvoe's channel 49 mux sat between Mendip's channels 48 and 52 muxes, often causing customers problems when retuning.

Peter Dolman: Wenvoe is moving in part to get out of the way of Mendip (but also some of its own relays). Mendip will retune on 27 March: the BBC A multiplex currently on C61 will move to C49.

The two transmitters will not use interleaved frequencies after this retune, but Wenvoe will stop at C47 and Mendip will start at C48, making the 'remove the aerial cable' technique effectively impossible anyway.

I live in the Swansea region and retuned on jan 24th and now the BBC channels only are breaking up in ways they were not before. I have a Sony Bravia KDL-26T30 television from 2007 connected to a DVD player and then to an Antenna through a booster box. Any thoughts? Is the booster box the issue? Might things work again if I take this out of the equation?

Thank you

Michael: If you are using the Wenvoe transmitter the BBC channels did not change channel and so there is nothing different (they are the same).

For this reason, I wonder if your receiver has tuned BBC from another transmitter.

Bring up the signal strength screen and ensure that it is tuned to C41 (for Wenvoe).

Other possibilities may include Carmel on C60, Kilvey Hill on C23 or Preseli on C43.

You may be able to use the unplugging aerial trick during the part of the scan that the unwanted transmitter is received.

Wenvoe's lowest channel is 39 and its highest is 47. So if you find that it has tuned Kilvey Hill on C23 then you can avoid this (and other Kilvey Hill signals) by having the aerial unplugged for the first 30% of the scan or until it gets to the early 30 channel numbers, should it give channel numbers when scanning.

Good move!!!, as it was a major problem in the west of England with automatic tuning . In most cases you had to do a manual tune to separate Wenvoe from Mendip.
