Mr bale:

The partial post code given is insufficient to show anything about your reception conditions. Please give a full post code then we can see which of over 1100 transmitters your are using and what the expected reception is like. You could also enter the full post code into the Digital UK Coverage Checker at Digital UK - Coverage checker It may be that the recent changes have moved some channels to frequencies that your current aerial is unable to receive. A number of the changes require people to now use a wideband aerial. If that is the case for you, then ring 0808 100 0288, the Freeview Advice line number.

MrE: Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Please provide a full postcode so that we can see which transmitter you're using, where you are in relation to it and your predicted coverage etc.
