Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Caldbeck transmitter area
Transmitter engineering: Hi I and numbers of other are experiencing issues with the sound and stuttering visuals from the transmitter on free view HD channels. There is currently no sound on live tv and the picture stutters to these channels. There is however sound from recordings from hd channels and no picture stutter. I have had a bt engineer visit yesterday who explained that others he'd visited were experiencing the exact same problems. Hope you read my comment and I have explained it sufficiently well... Thanks

Tony Lees :
This is an independent technical helpsite. If you have BT TV and have had a BT engineer visit and he is aware of similar problems with others in your area, then he should know exactly who to report the problem to.
I can't find any current listing of problems or engineering in your area (that doesn't mean there isn't any - sometimes lists aren't up-to-date). If the problem continues, I would get back to BT and ask them if they have reported the issues to the relevant organisation (quite likely to Arqiva!).
