i know this is a long shot but, had a phone call today in which the caller from this area says he use to get ch5 from ntl (virgin) after previous work which he lost a while back (seems sure and only thro his video) but today lost bbc2. only logical answer is this transmitter and the east switchover? but no changes till aug 17? any changes missed? will it lose bbc2 thro nottm relay changes? if nottm relay serves eastwood or waltham? cheers brian

ian, notts: Nottingham does not have any relays. Sounds like the "cable" customer is not using cable at all.

Ian, Notts: I believe Virgin Media are required to carry analogue versions of the main channels that you can tune into even if you aren't subscribing any more. It's possible that the cable head-end is fed from Nottingham - in which case they need to do some engineering to figure out how to continue supplying an analogue feed, if that continues to be required!

Best point of contact is Virgin Media themselves.

ian, notts: These relay transmitters use off-air reception from the main regional transmitter for provision of the old four analogue and three new digital channels.

The cable networks were required to carry the five original PSB services (BBC One, BBC TWO, ITV1, Channel 4/S4C and Channel 5) in analogue form. This requirement has lapsed.
