Strange to get two different ITV news feeds, though. Presumably Calendar can't produce an HD feed, much the same as none of the local BBC news programmes. (53.7179,-2.0959)

You obviously don't read comments on the trivial Freeview Light transmitters as you still say that the local BBC News on Todmorden is BBC North West when it is BBC Leeds and on HD the local ITV news is Granada not Yorkshire. Perhaps when you make the corrections you claim you're so hot on, you might have a second thought about classifying BBC4HD and BBCNews HD as commercial services. (53.7179,-2.0959)

David Mansell: Thank you for your comments.

The designations of COM7 and COM8 are provided for us by Ofcom. The multiplexes belong to Arqiva, a private commercial company. It may carry BBC services, but the designation of the multiplex is that of a commercial one.

I'm going to look at why the transmitter is showing the wrong BBC designations.

Unless there has been a recent change - and there could have been - ITV HD was showing only the "ad regions" on the HD multiplex, which are London, Granada, Meridian South East, Central West.

This means that the HD service doesn't carry the correct local news in the "YTV area", you get a filler service of Granada. This may have changed on Freeview, but the only versions I can see from here in London are those on satellite: Eutelsat 28A & Astra 2A/2E/2F at 28.2?E - LyngSat

I've corrected the database, I have no idea why it had the wrong BBC value. Finger trouble no-doubt.

I'm sorry it took so long, but I do rather have a lot "on my plate" at the moment, so some things have to take lower priority,
