Hi,
My neighbours and I are experiencing problems with all of our free view channels. The only channels we can currently view are those broadcast in HD with some signal break up. All of the other channels are almost completely scrambled and unwatchable. I am aware that some work is taking place at the Waltham Transmitter, but this problem has been presenting itself for the past 3 weeks or so. Could you let me know when the works will be completed, and whether or not the bbc are likely to compensate licence payers for the distribution?!?
Cheers
Any info would be appreciated :-)

Hi Dave,

There are currently two active HD multiplexes. One is at Ch31 (554MHz) the other is at Ch58 (770MHz). Are both of these working okay for you?

Cheers

Hi
We have both satellite on our main tv and terrestrial as back up and for visitors.Our son has been convalescing with us at the moment and pointed out that all channels on Com5Arqa are breaking up.I checked signal strength and was getting bit error level 2000 ,signal strength 0,signal quality 0.The other channels are perfect.this same phenomena was evident at our old address,but i put this down to our location LE38GX,however we are now at LE167YF,at the top of Clack Hill,Market Harborough.When we moved the local installer told us that the signal was so good a loft aerial would suffice.When i installed the new tv,a Samsung Smart tv everything was fine,so am not sure when this problem started as we do not use this tv very often.Can you please advise.
Many thanks.......John Webster
