Hi Briantist,

I thought that Storeton also transmits with mixed polarity - vertically for it's English service and horizontally for it's Welsh service, although I note that only the English service is covered in detail on the relevant page with but a brief mention of the Welsh multiplexes with no technical details.

Stuart - I live in Buckley and can receive Freeview HD from both Winter Hill (C54) and Storeton (C60) which gives me BBC1, BBCHD, ITV1, C4 and S4C Clirlun, all without problem.

Does reception of the principal FM stations from Holme Moss really extend over most of England and Wales as shown above?

The above Welsh Freeview information implies that the 3 multiplexes on C57, C53 and C60 all put out the same programming. This is definitely NOT the case, as, for example, I receive HD programming on C60, ITV, etc on C53 and BBC1, etc on C53.

Briantist - Now that S4C have announced that they are to drop HD from the end of this year, any word as to what the spare slot will be used for?

Switching from Auto to PCM cured the problem for me. However, last year I purchased a Panasonic Sound Bar which I use via an SPDIF link and the improvement in sound quality over the TV's sound system is dramatic. Highly recommended!!!

I live in Buckley, N Wales and receive HD from both Storeton and Winter Hill. Both services are fine.

Is there any way I can get rid of the intrusive advert for 'search the electoral roll', 'top 10 HDTV's', 'West Ridge Academy', etc, which is superimposed on the map at the top of the page?

I thought that 1296kHz transmissions from Orfordness ceased in May 2012.

Great to see COM7 on the air. But what about COM8? Is it really due this month as shown above? What programming will it carry?

Also, why don't the BBC HD channels carry a text service?
