Wednesday 14th May 2009: Just under six months remaining until "phase I" of switchover. These three screengrabs were taken around 8:15pm from BBC1 (UHF 55). Slight cross-modulation of signal visible due to non-optimal arrangement of splitter+booster feeding TV card. The caption appeared on the screen for one minute.
Thursday 15th May 2009: The following four were grabbed from ITV1 (UHF 59) in the early evening. I had a clean signal on this channel. As in most cases, the captions tend to go right across people's heads (in this case, Jasper Carrot). But at least they aren't easy to miss!
Friday 16th May 2009: The following grabs are from BBC 2 (UHF 62), showing the early evening gameshow "Eggheads". Again, there's a bit of interference on this channel due to use of an ad-hoc splitter/booster assembly at my end, including some cheapo co-ax in the chain. Although, the signal coming into the house from the roof aerial is perfect. Being more accustomed to digital TV nowadays I have lapsed into accepting this set-up which still manages to provide perfect digital reception on the PC of all six multiplexes! After switchover, lack of analogue will effectively render these imperfections unnoticeable.
