So switchover seems to have happened but I cannot get any of the channels listed under C or D

I really do not understand why these no longer work - tried to use the channels & frequencies quoted here but it doesnt pick up new channels.

Why oh why is this digital switchover so complicated? I thought the whole point is to make things easier...not harder! This has been an annoying & frustrating day. Still isnt it great to see my licence fee is put to such good use...

FrustratedinHorsham; The trade view reception predictor indicates that you should be able to receive all multiplexes but "only" from March 14th when switchover stage 2 takes place, this event requiring a re-tune.

The other point I noticed is that ArqB (Ch50) will be remaining on low power (1Kw) until October before it increases to 10Kw the same as the other commercial muxes, and although it is indicated as "good" for your area whether in reality it will or not is something that will have to be seen.

By the way the licence fee is not connected in any way to the purely commercial multiplexes such as SDN / ArqA / ArqB.

After re tuning the digital receivers this week to get BBC2 due to the start of the switchover from the Midhurst transitter, the signals on groups C and D have gone from 40 - 50% on quality right up to 100%. So once again I can watch all of the channels that I lost a couple of months ago.

Transmitter engineering: Since retuning after the switch over we've lost the BBC Mux (channel55) from our Humax 8000T PVR. It just won't see it no matter what we do (deleting all channels, scanning with no aerial, manual scanning etc) even though it shows 80% strength on the screen. The TV plugged into it has no problem seeing all channels as do all the other TV's in the house. Any suggestions as we're loosing patience!
