Hope you can shed some light on this please.

I have a wideband aerial pointed at Dover digital reception is not great but works my set up is as follows aerial to sky box via a cheap labgear one output booster and a rf2 output from sky box up to another tv which works fine but for some reason every now and again the BBC mux C68 go missing at a fairly consist time of about between 19:00-20:00 ish,then they come back and stay on ok it seems to be the only time it happens and signal reported by the tv dipps to 40% from a stable 50% signal signal quality good.
so what i have done is fit a vairable m/head amp and it has increased the signal to 95% and no problems so the next step I did seeing as my signal looked good(tested with a cheap slx dtv checker all the green lights on ) was to run the feed into a antiference 4 way f splitter and then run three feeds to three different tvs and terminated the fourth feed hoping that with the signal improved it would work but the same problem comes back the bbc mux c68 from Dover goes off for a while on all tv's around 19:30 last night and then comes back and is fine the the rest of the night still with less than 50% signal compared with just over 50% during the day hopefully when switchover day comes it will go away but out of interest could you help tell me why this happens ? is it just a marginal signal issue many thanks in advance

Kris thanks for the info,I have fixed it now prior to DSO I found out by accident you can find the bbc MUX on C45 Dover B transmitter that hold the signal steady just fine at the mo.Its a bit weird because the boxes or tv refuse to use that channel and alway find C68 but a manual tune has sored it cheers.
