Hi there, I'm in the Peterhead area, postcode AB42 0TE. I've been having problems with channels recieved since the June 15th retune. On retuning on the 15th we were getting very few channels, but having retuned again on Monday 20th we are now recieving most channels. However, we are still not recieving the COM 6 channels (Yesterday, Film4, 4Music etc). Any idea why this is?

Hi there, I posted a comment before but no-one seems to have answered it. We are STILL not recieving the COM6, Mux ArqB channels (Yesterday, Film4 etc). Our post code is AB42 0TE, near Hatton, Peterhead, approximately 2.5 miles from the east coast at Cruden Bay. We had a guy out to check our aerial alignment and signal strength today. The alignment is fine, signal strength is 58-64 for Muxs 1-5, but COM6 reads only 42 (not sure what the unit of measurement is). We have a booster box and all equipment & cabling is only 5 years old. We are not recieving interference from Knockmore. Our technician says the COM6 channel was moved from Channel 41 to Channel 29 in June in an attempt to improve the signal but he reckons there has been no improvement at all and a lot of people are not recieving this Mux.

Is anything being done to improve the distribution of channels on COM6, Mux ArqB from the Durris transmitter?

Is there anything I can do to improve reception of these channels other than install freeSat (which is a cop out!)?

Thanks in advance,
