Hannington digital switchover passes without major issues

The final analogue switch off for Hannington (Meridian and BBC South) passed by in February without major issue, some customers had problems re-tuning their TVs and Freeview boxes, most were easily sorted.

Some Freeview boxes and TVs however, were unable to read the new signals, a couple of early Samsung LCD TVs had problems and needed to be re-tuned in manual tuning mode, and some early Freeview boxes failed to recognise the signals altogether.

Fortunately Freeview boxes are relatively inexpensive, so replacement was not too painful for the customer.

Next dates to look forward to in Berkshire, are April the 4th and 18th, when Crystal Palace transmitter analogue signals are switched off, this will have a major impact in Reading and Tilehurst, with thousands of residents receiving their TV from there.

So if you think you may have problems, call Rolf at 1towatch on 07971 327931 (direct line) or 0118 945 2492 to leave an answerphone message.

Following up on the Hannington and London Crystal Palace switchover, still having the odd call from people who’ve not managed to retune their second TV, or have analogue TVs which still need a Freeview box.
