As the "com7" multiplex is alive on the Crystal Palace transmitter, viewers in London now see this exciting screen if they choose 74, 106 or 107.



The same multiplex is also broadcasting Al Jazeera in high defintion in HD.

Another "new" feature is Freeview is now showing a short region code on standard definition BBC ONE

And, congratulations to The York Channel and Made in Teesside, who have won their local TV licences.

JB38: I'd forgotten the Philips 42PFL7606H/12...every other 3D TV (ie: high level) in 2011 had an HD tuner - but not the Philips. A very odd company, alas, and one which is increasingly irrevelant.

sharealam: I don't think it's HD, it is just on the com7 multiplex. It would be on 108 if it was HD (according to the rules).

sharealam: That's because the channel is broadcast in MPEG4 on DVB-T2. But it's not HD.

The Northern Ireland Minimux is also, for example, broadcast in DVB-T2 but only carries three SD channels.

Hi Nick your right there. my panasonic tv shows signal quality 100% signal strength 60%. other channels show 80% also i reduced my booster amp unit to 10db it was 26db.. which was too much for my tv. by reducing it has made it more stable and reliable. No more break ups. Happy days :-)
