Winter Hill (Bolton, England) transmitter

Around the time Pissedoffcustomer was posting his rants I was patiently waiting for Winter Hill to carry out its work. What's two hours disruption when you want to get it right for the longer term?! Some channels went down for a while, yes, but they came back. No problem, but I appreciate this will not be the case for all.

With that in mind, I was in work for a few hours retuning my workplace's freeview boxes and TV's this morning - a care home.

Only one TV proved stubborn, it was picking up Welsh channels, possibly due to the connected aerial being slightly misaligned from Winter Hill.

Eventually got that TV to autotune all Mux's into their correct LCN position except the 8 channels at C59 (ITV, C4, C4+1 C5, ITV2, ITV+1, More4 and E4).

These ended up at 800 - 807, so moved these channels to their intended LCN's without too much fuss.

Those of you who are not receiving a signal. Have you tried feeding your Freeview TV's/Boxes/Recorders by passing any boosters. If you are receiving a potentially good signal from your chosen transmitter or relay, a booster may be counting against your reception.

Give it a try.

Interesting how messages were posted onto the Winter Hill sections in droves, yet not a whisper from the latest re-tunes in Scotland. I would hope most tuning problems will have been solved by advice posted by the likes of Digital UK, Freeview, etc. I trust those still out of luck will see their problems solved as fast and as cheaply as possible. Having re-tuned equipment at home and at work with few problems, I'm reluctant to lay blame at the door of those in charge of trying to provide the best reception for our services.

Pleasant surprise to get some new stations om DAB radios, thanks to the coverage from North East Wales reaching my locale in Southport. Enjoying the reception of BBC Radio Wales.
