Rocks & Co appears to now be starting at 8am (probably been like that for ages but I don't think it has been reported)
the EPG info for Rocks & Co is wrong as its been like that for a every long time. as Rocks & Co is only on air from 1pm to 11pm
Confirmed 8am start - direct observation. Also note that the off-air caption now states the extended hours of 8am to 11pm.

Just flicking through channels - Jewellery Maker (from Gems TV) is now on Marketplace; for which as reported earlier is now 24/7.

Perhaps Marketplace is owned by Channel 5 since Jewellery Maker is on the downtime for 5*? To bring in some ratings revenue (if that) with the partnership with Gems TV to fund towards 5Later?

Connect 2, which has never had anything on it, has moved from SDN to ARQ B. I imagine this is because Arqiva own Connect TV and would rather have these on their own mux.

First sighting of COM8 being broadcast - C37 is currently transmitting a mux containing only null packets from Winter Hill. C31 is simultaneously transmitting COM7 also full of null packets. So Winter Hill is currently transmitting nine muxes in total.

Channel 1.
With immediate effect, BBC One in the English regions on Freeview (and YouView) will now carry the region in the service name, e.g. "BBC ONE Lon", "BBC ONE W Mid", "BBC ONE E Mid", "BBC ONE East W".

For the avoidance of doubt, Freeview HD channels 106, 107 and 74 are only available in a few areas.

Visit www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker to see if you're in the current or forthcoming coverage area for extra Freeview HD services. Type your postcode, tick the "detailed view" checkbox and see if "COM7" is listed on the next page, which details the transmitters you should be able to receive a service from. In the COM7 column, the figures should be as close to 100 as possible, with green boxes showing a good reception prognosis (wideband aerial may be required in some areas). Note also the dates along the left of the screen, showing how reception may change over time, or when COM7 will become available in your area.

As this is a changelog thread, please find out more and raise any further enquiries in the following discussion thread: http://forums.digitalspy.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1914085

Would I be right in thinking that the caption on LCN 105 is a video stream with a still image and no sound? I ask because the MHEG ones like 106 and 107 show no video config at the top on my TV.

When I switch to 105 it shows "1080i/50 Hz" in the top left for a few seconds.

Can anyone confirm this is a video stream now rather than MHEG? It may be on 73 during the day.

Thanks.

Yes, that's right and yes, it is. See recent posts on this thread.

Internet streamed channel Propeller TV has now gone live on 'connected Freeview' channel 229. It's the former 'Connect 2' channel.
