Hi Paul
Are you sure when you re tuned that you only tuned Mendip and not got another transmitter, worth checking again.
The reason why I say this is because the only few calls which I can count on one hand after the last change over was the norm ie: customer goes to autotune and picks up bathamton which is ch22 upwards and so forth.
The problem that causes is when in auto tune it will log the first bbc1 etc that it finds, and anyone on mendip gets the last look in so to speak ch48-67.
So worth double checking that one because the mendip transmitter at the moment is better than its ever been even far as signal strength and stability.

Hi Wutty
The job needs to be surveyed properly before advise of this nature can be given, and me for one would need to see whats been installed todate, stackers/destackers work very well when all things are installed correctly and the equipment is within the specifications required.
As mark stated cable quality is a number one problem and always has been with DIYs and spark contractors, I will guarantee to you if you ask any of the above two categories what grade cable they used on a particular job the reply will be satellite grade cable, must of here that a million times, its such a loose term, its like someone asking what grade cable did you use to wire your house with and me answering ooooo mains cable the stuff that grey.
I personally only ever use TX100LSF its all that carried in the van wether its terestrial or satellite installations.
Far as the big jobs with multiple buildings i will only ever use fiber optics these days, then coaxal on the final drops.
Most of it is stright forward if you do your homework when planning in the first place, after all its the equipment that does the work at the end of the day all it needs is to be installed and set up correctly
