Current state of the Cable Telly [Dec. 18th, 2007|06:27 pm]

So yes, I have a cable telly engineer visiting on December 27th.

I think that the cable box has cooked itself and is doing its best with some toasted chips. Cable telly functioning as follows:

Working fine

BBC One
BBC Two
BBC Three

Working but stuttery

Dave

Not working

Looks like you have lost a Transport Stream, MUX's 01 - 06. SNR/levels issue or faulty STB is my guess.

You really need to teach your cable box to cook:

"and is doing its best with some toasted chips"

Introduce it to a deep fat fryer...
