I recently installed a 43 element UHF aerial and pointed at the Haywoods transmitter.  I am at the top of Stokes Valley and I don't think I could get a good signal off Fitzherbit (I'm above the saddle through to Naenae).  I bought myself a JCMatthew DVB-TB01 and ran the auto-install.  I'm getting all of the channels perfectly except for the TVworks channels.  They either break up badly or say signal not found.

I found a thread here where someone mentioned that there was problems with the TV works channels off Haywoods.  Is there anyway to confirm this?  I contacted the Freeview helpline and they just told me to call an installer.

The comment about Haywards came from a post on the DTV forums

There are a few Freeview installers that frequent Geekzone, one of them may know a little more.

I was going to say that the problem appears to have been resolved as all three channels were working perfectly last night, but they have gone again today.
