Thanks for the info. Proof of the pudding will be tomorrow morning, before driving to
work with crossed fingers!

Must remember a DB backup first!!!

Those should only crop up in a full scan though - or at least shouldn't be hard to

10x boost on some channels. Yeah, this is why a lot of us have been picking up Welsh BBC
in preference to English Winter Hill this last month or so, due to a boost on a Welsh
transmitter. This affected Freeview settop boxes and TVs as well as Myth. --
