Hi. Thanks for the reply. NR19 (Dereham) doesn't appear to be within transmission range, yet both a Samsung and a Toshiba just outside town can pick up the channel perfectly. However, two Panasonics on the same street (albeit 200yds apart) cannot. Another TV (Sony) about 3 miles west of Dereham CAN pick it up and one TV (another Panny) in Dereham cannot get it.

This is the only reason why I made an assumption that it could be Panny Tv's with issues. Deadite66 seems to have settled that one though! Mind you, they are within the catchment area. Maybe Panny's aren't very good at probing for weak transmissions. I don't know.

I'll just have to deliver the bad news - no 'Mustard' for the masses of Dereham! LOL!

Lambo: it's is possible that some devices are not scanning for the transmission mode QSPK 8K 3/4
8.0Mb/s DVB-T MPEG2 but it's been in the Blue Book for many a year, perhaps the devices can do a manual scan... Can't think of any boxes I have seen that present QSPK as an option though.
