Is the NC used as a sustaining feed underneath the regional opts?


Yes it is, except during Breakfast where BBC One London is used.

That's the name of the SIPSI group of transmitters, you see it on some receivers while they perform a tuning scan. It shouldn't get baked in to the channel ID?

The Rowridge/Midhurst group is 'South' and Hannington is 'Berks and North Hants'

I think some TVs may give that information as secondary in the programme/channel info page where stuff like video codec, resolution and format, and audio codec, HbbTV vs MHEG5 etc. are listed alongside the channel name, LCN and EPG data.

Yes. I think I've seen it appear when pressing the 'i' button on some Vestal PVRs, (Digihome and Bush brands)

Very interesting. I suspect it's a cock up, I'll keep an eye on things this side of Meridianland

Edit 15:00hrs 31/12: Just performed a rescan, and ITV (SD) from Hannington is still labelled 'ITV' with no suffix
