Sutton Coldfield's COM7 is a reported 89.22 on digitaluk http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker/main/trade/B75+5JJ/NA/0/NAIt's even worse in my area the 6 main MUXs are on 200 kWatts with COM7 on only 6.4 kWatts ! ! !
There is nothing 'supposedly' about it. IT IS, as I've told you before. Why can't you just accept it?Com7 is not available to me from the Wales repeater I use, and although it is supposedly being transmitted from Mendip it is at such a low power compared with the other multiplexes...
Am I right in thinking you didn't have them before yesterday either? It wasn't totally clear from your message.No I don't get any of them, I only get 101/102/103/104/105
Sorry I spoke!Am I right in thinking you didn't have them before yesterday either? It wasn't totally clear from your message.
Yesterday's changes have absolutely NOTHING to do with transmitters or receivability, so you are probably out of luck.
As Luke said, check you are in the coverage area on the Digital UK site. Giving a rough idea of your location, the age/size/location of your aerial, the age/length of your downlead etc. might help, as will checking the signal level/quality on a manual tune, as I suggested earlier.
You may need a new wideband aerial as yours could well be a group C/D and it ain't gonna work very well on channel 31.
This now means you have to put some work in to answer questions. Posing more isn't going to get you very far.
Really? I suspect that you have mis-interpreted prvr's intent for posting. I am not sorry that either you or prvr posted.Sorry I spoke!
That's a rather touchy reading of my post. I accept that it is, but as I have not verified it for myself it will always be "supposedly" or "reported to be". At least it has more weight of evidence than a WiFi link working with the Humax booted in maintenance mode, where an explanation for the variable experience is less obvious than transmitter power.There is nothing 'supposedly' about it.

1 I do not think I need to clarify my question in Post 6, "Is there some way of finding if/when the power will be increased?Really? I suspect that you have mis-interpreted prvr's intent for posting. I am not sorry that either you or prvr posted.
Any chance of you going through prvr's #10 reply and posting some clarification? prvrs reply does give some very big ACTIONS that you could ty to help yourself - plus also requests that you post more details so that other members of this could help you by tapping into their relevant experience.
To digress, this does work. You need to have the extra CFW WiFi packages installed (as said before). Connect the unit to the network first by DHCP, noting the IP address, then connect by Telnet and reboot into maintenance mode. The IP address displayed on the front panel will be wrong, use the one you noted.At least it has more weight of evidence than a WiFi link working with the Humax booted in maintenance mode
I'm not sure what the current power levels of Sutton Coldfield are, but my wideband aerial produces these signal strengths on the Humax, as you can see COM7 is way down on the others :-Sutton Coldfield's COM7 is a reported 89.22 on digitaluk http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker/main/trade/B75 5JJ/NA/0/NA
From a persistent out of date or otherwise inaccurate web site I suspect that the very first internet published draft of the proposed initial power level for Sutton Coldfield was 6.4 kW.
Have you tried asking any of your neighbours if they can receive BBC FOUR HD, and the other COM7 channels? If they can, this would suggest a problem with your aerial installation, as previously mentioned. Knowing that a neighbour can receive these channels, would almost certainly make it worth your while to look into having your installation checked, or even replaced if necessary.Hence, unless I move home/buy a new aerial ( an unproven idea), I get no BBC 4 HD I assume for ever.
