S CRICHTON: I think the likely answer is that it's touch and go as to whether you will receive them as they are not as strong as the rest.

I'm in the Salford area, and you know what? Movies4Men is always doing this. Works fine for a couple of months, then vanishes for a week or two. Maybe it's something to do with the people who man the transmitters going on holiday or something as simple as that. My guess is normal service will be resumed next week. Until the next time. Probably Easter.

David Anderson, S CRICHTON and others receiving Movies4Men from the Winter Hill transmitter in the North West:

Any apparent intermittent reception is due to the fact that the signal isn't as strong as the main Freeview ones. It is also aimed directionally towards Manchester rather than being the same strength in all directions (it's not omni-directional) from the transmitter.

The reason it "vanishes" is because the signal level has dropped, possibly slightly, and is below that which your receiver requires to resolve a picture. Contrast this with analogue reception where a small reduction in strength would cause a small reduction in quality.

So digital reception appears as "all or nothing", depending on whether the strength is above or below the threshold required.

As the signal for Movies4Men is not equal to the main channels then it is the case that there are those who are definitely served and get a reliable picture all the time; those who don't get it at all, and; those whose picture is intermittent.

4 days ago Why have channels 51 52 56 and 62 gone off Freeview ol6 8rh

Hi All
There are 6 main muxes on Winter Hill but the channels mentioned by S CHRICTON are no longer on them. They are now on a 7th Mux but at much lower power levels so the ability to receive them will depend on your equipment - distance from Winter Hill and the power levels you already receive.

Manually tune to Transmission channel 57 (762Mhz) to regain these channels if you can. Good Luck.

Whether this is permanent or temporary I do not know.

Well, I see Movies4Men 1 and 2 are back, as of last night. And just as the festive season ends. Maybe I was right when I suggested that the loss of these channels was down to engineers knocking off for their hols. I guess that means the channels will next disappear at Easter.
