I'd have thought it would be better to have users identify their
transmitter - though I know some will struggle with that.
I'm OK here as I only get Winter Hill, but I have friends that can
get both Winter hill (main transmitter 40 miles away) and the local
infill repeater (<1 mile away and well off-axis for the antenna).
People like this are always going to be a problem as they tend to get
2 of most channels - one of which is poor quality. In the case of my
friends (and I don't think this is unusual), the local repeater is on
lower frequencies and so they get unusable channels in the main slots
and the usable ones get shoved up to 800 on a "standard" freeview
box. The trick is unplugging the cable till the scan has gone past
the local tx.
In these situations, do the channel identifiers have anything to
differentiate them, or would that have to come from the transports
Hmm, memo to self - will need to retune them sometime to get the
latest channel changes.
