MikeP: In fact my comment was published at least an hour before the BBC put their announcement on the site, which doesn't say anything about engineering works, just that everything was off air. As I say when I checked the site there was nothing about engineering works, everything was supposed to be fine. I think you owe me an apology.

David Mansell: Also in fact you didn't post your comment until Friday and the Todmorden transmitter breakdown occurred on Thursday. Did you examine the chronology of my comment and of the BBC's comment. You will see that mine came first. The announcement of "engineering works" (just a euphemism for a breakdown, as no "engineering works" were pre-announced, the whole system just stopped at 9.00) you now see on the site was not there on Thursday when I logged into it, as you would know if you has logged in then, rather than on Friday, when it was all over. Your entire statement is rubbish.

MikeB: Because you accused me of doing something I didn't do. I didn't jump the gun because there was no gun to jump. When I reported the Todmorden transmitter as being down this site was still saying there were no problems with it. If you are so privy to everything that happens at the Todmorden transmitter, perhaps you would care to share the cause of its shutdown with us. If any improvements were made to its operation they have yet to make themselves manifest as it still suffers from the same frequent drop-outs of signal as it did on the day before it broke down without any announcement.
Given your arrogance I can only assume that your name ends with a "k".

Todmorden transmitter now working again. In the meantime I have discovered that I have a new SD channel: Sewing quarter!. I would prefer Talking Pictures.

Did a retune recently and I now have ITV3 on 10 on Freeview (800 on Youview) and the aforementioned Sewing Quarter(!) on 78 on Freeview (801 on Youview). Presumably I'm getting them from Emley Moor?

Thanks, just did that and the channels have relocated to their correct numbers on Youview too. Perhaps the rubric for the Todmorden, Cirnholme and Walsden relays needs updating.

Todmorden relay off air again today from 2.49 pm. It must be one of the flakiest transmitters in the country.
