The EPG transmitted from Sandy Heath includes data for the frequency 626000 kHz.
Here's an extract of the XML for those who, like me, are interested in that sort of stuff..

</channel>
</tv>

626000 kHz translates to channel C40, and this page (ukfree.tv/extras/searchfrequency/40) tells me that Sandy Heath transmitter does not use C40.

I'm not exactly devastated that I can't receive That's Cambridge, Kix, True Crime, and True Movies (logical channels 7, 127, 60, and 74 respectively) as three of the four are on DVB-S regardless, but why would they appear in the Sandy Heath EPG?

Alternative question: If C40 _is_ transmitted from Sandy Heath, even at low power, should it not appear on this page? (ukfree.tv/transmitters/tv/Sandy_Heath)
