The CAI’s technical committee has just completed what has amounted to a mammoth amount of work on a code of practice for home networks. Despite the time and work the document has been kept to a concise an acceptable 33-page document covering all aspects of networks and connectivity in the home. It is now available on the CAI website for members once logged in - https://www.cai.org.uk/downloadables/viewcategory/46-codes-of-practice-regulations.
The CAI has produced an explanatory document following a number of calls and enquiries regarding the availability of channels on additional Freeview Commercial HD multiplexes (COM7 & COM8) that have emerged in some areas, along with a local carriage mux. Members can issue this single page document to clients when the message of areas being ‘out of range’ of the additional muxes is not being understood or accepted.
The number of standard definition channels only available to viewers with newer Freeview equipment continues to grow with the addition of new channels using newer DVB-T2 technology.
The BBC has issued another warning about TV and radio problems due to the current atmospheric conditions across parts of the UK.
