Digital effects that arenít getting a good reception

Post by GD on Sat 20 Nov 2010, 4:12 pm

ISLANDERS are missing out on receiving some digital channels because there are fewer frequencies available in the Channel Islands.
On Wednesday, Jerseyís analogue signal was switched off for ever, allowing Freeview digital channels to be broadcast across the Channel Islands for the first time.
But while Islanders are now receiving an additional 13 channels on top of the four that they had before, viewers in the UK are receiving significantly more than that.
Meanwhile, another effect of the digital switchover is that Islanders will no longer be able to listen to Five Live on the radio in the evenings. Previously, Radio Jerseyís medium wave signal carried Five Live in the evenings.
However, because Five Live is one of the radio stations that is available with the new digital television signal, BBC Jersey have decided to now instead carry regional evening broadcasting on MW Ė the same as they currently do on FM. (from BBC)

So what are yor views on the new Digital TV?

And you will get fed up with having to constantly retune your sets.

We have had four retunes here in the last week.
