No major issues here with switchover stage 1. Only problem was a Freeview HD STB which apparently uses first found rather than best signal when deciding which instance of any given channel gets the allocated channel number. However, it's possible to tell it to scan particular frequencies: more fiddly, but much faster than a full scan.

Also, BBCB is currently shown above with two signal strengths?EUR?

Got a pctv nanoStick T2 for the BBCB MUX (which I recently discovered was receivable here for some time before switchover began).

This works fine with vdr on GNU/Linux (given kernel 3.0 or later), except that the EPG info is ?EUR~scrambled?EUR(TM) ?EUR" users need http://www.realh.co.uk/vd…h.gz to fix this.

Also seeing this channel loss issue here (I-Can HD STB). Telling it to rescan on 770000MHz temporarily fixes things.

Hopefully, this is a temporary issue and will be resolved on or before the 26th.

?EUR? except that a full scan (replacing existing channels, or with the list already wiped) may not help. It certainly hasn't here.
