Mux D3&4 London is carrying a FTA ninth stream (video on 0x05dd) but with no PMT, SDT, NIT entries so the signal cannot be decoded. Null packets are down to 500kbps (previously they were ~2000kbps).

Since yesterday LCN174 Babestation is carrying a Mheg stating that the service is currently not available.

Emley Moor and Bilsdale now carrying 9 video streams (1 hidden) on D3&4, all with 720x576 resolution. All PIDs on the MUX have changed to a uniform, more logical format.

Standard freeview equipment should be fine without a rescan until the hidden Film 4 streams become active. Non-standard computer software will most likely need a rescan as the PIDs have changed.

No one in the rest of the country has and if you're still receiving it then obviously not!
Edit: sorry, should not have posted this in the Change Log, neither should tomee have!

Speaking of rescans... NITs on Bilsdale multiplexes are currently carrying the frequency details of Pontop Pike multiplexes... That should have some interesting consequences.

Is it because of the weather?

Create & Craft seems to have lost its extended hours, now operating 6am to 6pm.

Wonder what will take up the 6pm to 10pm slot?

That was the slot previously used by the Food Network, before it obtained a 24 hour slot. So perhaps an indication that this slot will now be used to test the market for the Travel Channel.
