Be* have the same no-contention / no limits service as demon but for less money and without fuckups like this, their tech support even has an IRC channel with REAL LIFE techies with actual power to fix stuff. i haven't needed it yet but i idle in there and it gives me massive peace of mind. i'd highly recommend them

they aren't reducing analogue power to make it look bad, they're doing it in accordance with the plan that's been set for about 10 years as part of the switch over. freeview and analogue share frequencies so in essence it's one or the other. freeview power on my local mast is currently at 20% of the total - solely so that it doesn't interfere with analogue too much. i can't wait until they switch off analogue completely so that they finally have the bandwidth to display stuff at full power and with far more HD channels. as much as you might like to think it's a conspiracy it's actually for good technical reasons.
