I can understand that taking out a booster may be required but surely the system channel monitor should show there is an input. One of my sets did yesterday, everything was fine, today not a thing on C's68,63,54 or 21. Single wideband aerial feeding just one TV, whether through it's localised booster or not. How can that be?.

ib38, my signal level (Oxford SN3 4ST ) on BBC is 95/95%. When we did the re-tune ITV was also fine, today however ITV is jumping about a bit. Will the change on 28th resolve that.

Ron, Ben is merely feeling the frustration that thousands of users feel. It simply appears to be in the lap of the gods as to what we end up with.

How odd it seems the new message for the 28th only says retune if you loose any channels, rather than definitely retune after 6am.

Why is that.

MST I realise that but as I understood the original changeover info was that a factory reset was required both on 14th and 28th. Obviously it's good if we don't have to.

I have to say in fairness after retuning all our sets (first install) they are all working fine with strong signals.

One odd thing though we are still showing between 1 and 9 analogue signals on each TV, although no idea what they are.

Re my previous post it did require a complete reset, which when it worked was great.

Brian, I'm the first to complain but equally will acknowledge when things work out. Probably cost us a lot of unnecessary money with all the things keeping my guests happy but that's life.

Thank you

Anyone want to buy 5 signal boosters. I purchased them because despite all the best advice on here it was the only way to maintain the ITV channels during a year up to the change over.

Touching a very large piece of wood we know have strong signals on all our aerials. I do think the change over could have been handled much better it is clear that a vast sum of money has been spent by consumers unnecessarily.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water:):):). We are now getting breakup on ITV2 & ITV4 but not on any other channels. At switch over everything went swimmingly. SN34ST, any ideas.
