    Having watched countless episodes of Bing today I doubt that recording in HD would have improved the experience, though it is preferable to Tree Fu Tom or anything featuring Justin Fletcher!

    Why would you presume that?

    Anyway, what I meant was that if say you had a line in tunefix.conf which said "MUX|56" to remove mux. 56 and then tunefix-update moved something on to that mux., it would be removed again straight away. (It was not the move itself that had just struck me. I've been planning that since Selkirk last March.)
    I need to add code to stop it doing that, in the same way I had to remove (or add) certain LCNs in the config. file for Freeview Retune day.
    This is now going to necessitate quite a bit of a rewrite of the file handling/parsing/processing code, as I took the easy option last time round.

    They've got better eyes than you have. Anyway, perhaps folk could continue that discussion in the Freeview part of the forum.

    Part of what lay behind my assumption was that while move of a channel from one mux to another can utilise some details from other channels which are known to be on the mux being used for the new location, a whole mux move could be different and you may not have known, with certain, if some values are going to be reused by the new mux;
    but I'd forgotten about Selkirk, which obviously would have helped confirm what is being retained and what could just be copied over to the new mux entries with a good degree of certainty

    My second underlying thinking was that unlike national moves the mux moves are not national but are staggered, which would require more work to prepare for and setup.

    It's the same mux., just broadcast on a different RF channel.
    Well it might have done had we had any feedback about it, which we didn't.
    Yes, you're not wrong there.
