jb38: in Liphook (GU30) no signal at all for the second time this week - we are reduced to watching on iPlayer.

Do you know which transmitter provides your reception?

Why does this high pressure problem only seem to occur during peak viewing times and during the most popular programmes?

Maria: Whilst it might appear that this is the case, the phenomenom of tropospheric ducting is more noticeable at nightfall than during the day because it occurs when the air on the ground is cooling at a different rate to the air in the upper atmosphere. The resulting temperature inversion causes UHF TV and VHF radio signals to be defracted back to earth instead of them continuing into space upon reaching the horizon. The result is the signals are received beyond the normal coverage area, if they are on the same frequencies as used by your local transmitter it results in the local signal being corrupted, giving viewers intermittant reception or "no signal" messages. A similar situation can apply at sunrise, or in the middle of the night when fog on the ground is accompanied by clear air above but there are less people watching TV at these times, so it might go unnoticed, unlike during peak viewing time.

Not a question; just a comment. When there is an inversion - as yesterday - advice to rescan box may not be helpful. Here in Crawley on 28 September no reception from crystal palace but occasional pictures from Midlands. So I retuned one free view TV, only to have to redo it again this (Sunday) morning as crystal palace is 'back'.

We've checked the transmitter coverage map and find that although we're not in a "bright green" square for our Mendip transmitter, a more pertinent factor could be that our aerial points almost 180 degrees AWAY from this transmitter!
(NE towards Lark Stoke, say, as opposed to SW to Weston, from Stroud Glos)
Could this be relevant?

You can still get a lot of Free sat services from your sky box but I think for BBCi you will need a PC/tablet with a HDMI output; or some other device that gets your wifi into your TV
