Hello,
Problem trying to get Freeview HD:
I am in Stafford, receiving Sutton Coldfield, with amplified wideband aerial. Cannot get HD via a Panasonic HD+ unit. All muxes are shown as 100% quality except uhf Ch55 which has become unreliable (especially at night) since about November 2010. Ch55 was consistent via Sony SD Freeview boxes prior to Nov10 but now intermittent also.
I understand the HD transmitter for this area is at Lichfield (slightly more East of Sutton Coldfield).
Also, after Sep11 switchover, what will be on UHF Ch29 and will it be necessary to get K Band aerial instead of a Wideband?
Thanks

Briantist - thank you for the explanation re HD at Lichfield/Sutton.
I have an aerial oufit visiting today. In September 2011 (switchover) all will resolve itself. Incidently I'm now picking up a weak Wrekin BBC mux UHF Ch26 (their switchover in progress) with the amplified aerial pointing at Sutton.
