Thanks for the updates, Briantist and Mike Dimmick.

Digital UK's trade view postcode checker for the Mendip transmitter appears to have a mistake in that it claims that the SDN/Mux A/COM4 multiplex is now 64QAM, 2/3, 2k as of 28 Sep 2011. I'm pretty sure that it's actually 8k.

I tried to verify this with Digital UK, but I was told that "they're not technical" and didn't understand what I meant by 2k or 8k transmission modes. Hmm...

Jack Sukerman, have you tried a factory reset before doing a retune? I've found before that when channels are changing multiplex, and multiplexes are changing/swapping frequencies, it's very easy for TVs and set-top boxes to get utterly confused.

Thanks, Mike Dimmick; now, if only the advisor I spoke to on the phone at DUK had access to the same DUK Installer Newsletter...

Looking forward to being done with these regular retunes...
