Hi, I was interested to see the comments above about poor reception. I have also been experiencing drop outs and pixilation on Newhaven C50 for the last week or so in the Seaford area. Signal strength, which is usually about 75 will suddenly drop very low and even to zero sometimes.I have tried retuning and have checked everything out but couldn't find any problem at my end, so I am pleased that others are reporting problems.

When retuning, I have also noticed that channel 48 from Whitehawk Hill is being received at about 25 when all the other channels from Whitehawk are about 60. It's actually coming in less strong than channel 28 from Rowridge.

I'm also not receiving a Newhaven signal in Seaford (BN25). The transmitter must be down.

BN25 3ES. Along with my TV, I have a Panasonic Blue Ray/ Hard Disc recorder that I use to record freeview programmes to watch later.

Everything has worked perfectly until a few weeks ago after retuning both the TV and the recorder a small problem developed. It only affects the HD programmes from Newhaven on C40 and does not show up at all on the Standard definition channels.

When setting up recordings the programme information is available on all channels. However, when playing back that same programme information is available for Standard Definition channels, but is not available for the High Definition channels on C40.

I have gone through the reset procedures about 5 or 6 times without any success. It does not seem to be a problem with the recorder or with the signal strength.
