Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Waltham transmitter area
Jonathan & Hobbitt.
Don't think we cab resolve this individually.
I know Briantist keeps telling us it is single channel interference but if is, it's not being generated in my house. The problem is so widespread, there must be a pretty powerful transmitter somewhere putting it out. I have given up for the time being as I am convinced all my kit (nearly new) is not at fault.
I have an Engineeering Technical manager at ITV ringing me back on monday. Don't know if he will come up with a reason...failing that I guess no MUX 2 until August. Keep smiling,J.

obsidian_eclipse - Purely for information purposes, in the Stamford West area (notorious for bad reception) I can receive Ch31 via an amplified log periodic aerial on three separate devices, namely a Panasonic TX32G20B TV and two PVR's, a Humax 9200T and a Hitachi 162.
I will say that when the channel changed from 23 to 31 the signal level immediately dropped from a near 10/10 S&Q to an erratic 80% strength and a downwards varying 60% in quality with this occasionally diving to zero, these findings being similar in ratio across the three devices used, one of them (the Humax) being fed from a separate amplified log albeit still being directed towards Waltham.
As a matter of interest on a portable multi-standard LCD I use for external test purposes the data received on Ch31 shows the Video PID-0513, and the Audio PID-0651.
