I always suspected Action Man anyway. The sailor one with the black beard. Always looked like a funnel stoker to me.

I never ever watch commercial television so I dinnae get brain washed by adverts. The only channel I watch is BBC4 and if nothing is on I turn it off and pick up a book or listen to music. Serves you all right for watching that s!$%e :sick:

5iVe - any better ?

The changes affect two services broadcast on Arqiva's HD multiplexes. As part of a move by Ofcom to clear the 700MHz frequency band for future 5G mobile services, Arqiva's HD multiplexes will be moved to a temporary single frequency network on UHF channels 55 and 56 on a region-by-region basis, starting from February 2018. For the first time, neighbouring Freeview transmitters will carry the same services on the same frequencies. Under normal circumstances this would cause co-channel interference, particularly in overlap areas where signals from multiple transmitters would destroy reception. As a result, a parameter called the guard interval is being changed (from 1/128 to 1/16) on the affected multiplexes to ensure this doesn't happen. This is now due to take place around 25th January, subject to final confirmation. However, the trade-off is that the available bandwidth is reduced - expected to be by around 3Mbps per multiplex. A reduction of bandwidth means there's less room for as many channels to broadcast on a multiplex, so something has to move. Arqiva's COM7 multiplex, which carries the affected BBC HD services will be full after the switch based on the services it carries now. However, with space still available elsewhere, it provides an opportunity to conduct some load balancing, moving channels like BBC Four HD to where there's still some room ....

Not lost any channels but have had to quite a bit of re-tuning. Recently as many as 3 a day. Settled down at the moment. Television is quite clever as it tells me I need to re-tune when I switch it on when it needs to re-tune.....and even sometimes when we are just watching.

He, He, .. I worked at Hasbro Toys (the company that bought AM from Palitoy) where they had the design and prototype dept.

You should have seen "IT Nerd Action Man" and "Cross Dresser Action Man" complete with lace underwear liberated from a Cindy Doll the design dept made for a laugh..
