I have recently lost the entire C62 (802.0MHz) multiplex on the Oxford transmitter (from Friday 20th April).

That means ITV3, ITV2+1, 5*, 5USA, Quest, The Zone, Channel5+1, CITV (plus others) are all showing NO or BAD SIGNAL.

They are still down today (Monday 23rd April).

"Well, I'm 11 miles due west of the Oxford transmitter and reception has been fine on all multiplexes today."

Yes, it is a strange situation. Although I get "NO or BAD SIGNAL" on all C62 (COM4) Channels from Oxford, my Signal Strength is shown as normal on these Channels (~85%) but Quality is zero.

Since my re-boot, I have lost my EPG on those Channels, too. Re-booting and re-tuning have not restored C62 (COM4) from Oxford.

However, I have a second digi-box, and that is OK on ALL Multiplexes.

On the basis of that, I considered my first digi-box to have developed a fault, although gawd alone know what!

It was searching here, and seeing Stephen AND Robert's reports of similar problems at similar times with this Multiplex from Oxford, made me post.
