Your information about local news on the Todmorden transmitter is incorrect. We get the Yorkshire news (from Leeds) on BBC1, Calendar on ITV SD, but Granada on ITV HD. (53.7179,-2.0959)

Strange to get two different ITV news feeds, though. Presumably Calendar can't produce an HD feed, much the same as none of the local BBC news programmes. (53.7179,-2.0959)

You're still showing the wrong details for local news on the Todmorden transmitter (53.7179,-2.0959)

You obviously don't read comments on the trivial Freeview Light transmitters as you still say that the local BBC News on Todmorden is BBC North West when it is BBC Leeds and on HD the local ITV news is Granada not Yorkshire. Perhaps when you make the corrections you claim you're so hot on, you might have a second thought about classifying BBC4HD and BBCNews HD as commercial services. (53.7179,-2.0959)

Terrific thump on the power suuply about 15 minutes ago and now nothing at all from the relay on any channel. As the electricity supply is still working I can only assume the thump was caused by the relay going down. It seems to be one of the more unreliable relays in the country despite the paucity of channels it handles.

I think it went down at about 11.05am and it's still off now - 12.05. It seems to be one of the most unreliable relays in the country. Roll on Freeview Play and TV via the internet

Shaz: You can get all of the BBC channels (except BBC4 HD, which irritates me) which your licence fee pays for but most of the commercial providers don't think it's worth their while to pay for the transmission of their whole spectrum of channels to a small number of homes. I'm currently watching TV through a Roku streaming stick, but you can't get live BBC on it.

David Mansell: It's back on now 13.13. No doubt it will be reported as "transmitter work"

You say the Todmorden relay has no problems today but it's been not broadcasting TV or FM since about 10.30 am today.

Transmitter engineering: Yes it has come back but the strange thing I noticed yesterday is still happening : the sound is out of sync with the picture, lagging the picture by a few tens of micrseconds, even on live transmission.
