My re-tune seemed to work well earlier today. All channels were received with good quality.

This evening (28th Sept), all multiplexer 1 channels (BBC1, BBC2, BBC3, BBC News) are being received from Berks and North Hants, at poor signal strengths and quality.

All other channels continue to be received at excellent strength and quality from Beckley.

I have a modern digital arial placed outside on a chimney stack and aligned carefully on the Beckley transmitter. It feeds a Humax PVR.

Is there a problem with MUX 1 at Beckley this evening?

Thank you Briantist for your response. I was going to invest in an HD PVR anyway, and as Humax still have problems with Freeview (including failure of my box to down load the software update that was claimed to be available), I will switch to Freesat. But I wonder why a number of Freesat boxes needed downloadable updates on the digital switchover? Surely Freesat should have not have been affected by this?
