We've lost MUX29; it's been intermittent over the past couple of weeks and now it seems to have disappeared altogether. Any advice?

Jonathan: Com 4 is working fine for me, so perhaps check your system for a loose connection, dodgy cable, etc - might be one reason its vanished.

Ihave posted twice here about the inability of my Panasonic TV, series E5, to tune the new NottsTV qpsk mux, despite various cycles of rescanning. I haven't seen any other reports of this, but I asked about it in John Lewis yesterday. In the discussion I mentioned that I had disabled the 'New channels found' notification, which had been popping up implausibly often. They suggested that it might be worth re-enabling it. I did, and after another rescan I can now tune NottsTV(8), POP(75) and Chart Show TV(67). Other changes might have been made here too, but at least the TV can now decode the signals.

John Pilkington: Good that it got sorted, and something I'll remember when I'm working tomorrow.

Although the auroupdate feature can be annoying, its very good at finding new channels without any need for retuning - which is why it should just be left to its own devices.

Of course now that you've got Notts TV, what do you think?

Hi Mike,

I can't say I'm overly impressed with Notts TV. Or any of the other local TV services I've seen so far...

If there was a red button service that provided information about what was going on within each local authority borough, that would be a useful step forward!

I'm currently getting 95% 'Signal Strength' and 100% 'Signal Quality' in Nottingham...

SeeMoreDigital: The London service seems to want to show even less local content, so perhaps its not just Notts TV - and I'm not impressed with Notts programming either.

And I'm fine for the Waltham transmitter as well, so perhaps Jonathan should try check his system, might just be a dodgy connection hitting that mux.
