sorry forgot to put its 9-11 ish pm!
r7 - if you look at the redcat link you will see that the Muxes you have trouble with, C and D are lower powered and much higher frequency than the rest C53/C57 compared to C21-35 for the rest.

Do you know what group your aerial is? Incidentally, I am surprised that none of the site pedants have yet pointed out that a digital aerial is something as which there is no such thing.

I too am Wrekin - but rarely watch those channels. I will try to remember to check here tonight. Post if you have trouble and I will look.

Hmm, could this be the reason why on ITV1 (freeview)that the sound is very dodgy right now? If you've ever played a really old cassette and the sound goes rather, errrm, wavey you will no what i mean, it sounds like that

Edit - or not, seeing as im getting Sutton Coldfield, thought it was The Wrekin, lol
