    Hi, Is anyone else getting a problem from the Redruth Digi transmitter ? I use an original PACE & a Grundig digi box.
    A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that ITV2 was on the blink. The following day it seemed alright.
    Over the past couple of weeks I am having trouble with E4. When going to an effected channel on the Grundig, it closes down on its own.
    I did a re scan & only picked up 72 channels (it omitted 3/4 basic terrestrial channels amongst others. I was annoyed at this. The following day, I did another re-scan, & got the usual 90 channels,,, including the ones that I'd lost the day before.
    When the prob arises, I get it on both Pace & Grundig boxes.
    Does anyone know if there is a glitch at Redruth ?
    Does anyone know if there is a glitch with a certain transponder ?
    thanks in advance

    You could have a signal problem.
    Transponders are used on Satellites not Digital Terrestrial transmitters.

    ooops,,, silly me,,,, I meant 'multiplex' not transponder. Sorry if this threw you.
    I can actually see the Redruth transmitter from my home. I have all new antenna & Co-ax etc. All was fine until recently.
    thanks again

    I find the BBCs site http://www.bbc.co.uk/reception/transmitters/today.shtml very useful for Transmitter info.
