Hello 4g mobile phones!!!

There was a thing in the paper saying 4g was knackering freeview signal in certain parts of the country, sounds like you could be one of the unlucky ones...

I bet it has found two transmitters for BBC1 and has loaded the weakest to the top. Best is a manual channel sort.

It cannot be 4G interference as it was working fine before the re-scan of channels.

The article referred to the fact a load more transmitters were being turned on, hence the problem starting...

Look down lower in the channel list, I bet you will find another BBC1. If it's better, swap it to the top.
You can often tune by manually entering the channel numbers (e.g. 34, 44 etc).

See here to find them out: http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/

Don't get me wrong, the 4G interference problem is real, but the fact that the problems started with a retune suggests it's the wrong transmitter being selected by the box, not interference.

I've never understood that mentality.

I've never yet found one piece of tech that's been improved by drop-kicking it over a balcony. Not a one.

In fact - and I'm fairly confident in this - I think I can say with some authority, it will be considerable reduced in function, afterwards.

This advice has been a courtesy - I normally charge. I'm 50/50 on sending you an invoice - which, also, don't improve by being drop-kicked over a balcony.

I'm available for after-dinner speeches and bar mitzvahs, too...

Smashing.

I think you need to be a pukka engineer to properly pull off percussive maintenance. Alliteration, doncha just love it.

Is that like one of those themed things like Burning Man? I once saw an episode of Malcolm in the Middle about that, so I think I can fairly claim to be an expert.
