It seems that the “Welsh problem” with TV signals is not going away.
In fact, as other regions close to the Welsh border switch over to digital, TV viewers are finding that the signal from Wales is the more powerful one and therefore it turns out that Welsh TV is dominant in the area.
There are an estimated thirty thousand households now receiving their West TV regional TV in Welsh.
This has occurred all along the Welsh border because the stronger signal coming out of the transmitter based in Wales is transmitting on a similar frequency to nearby relays.
The situation is not as bad as it may seem at first.
It occurs when a viewer carries out the auto retune.
This automatically locks onto the strongest signal, but a manual retune can ensure that the viewer is getting the channel that they want to see.
