Mike Potter: ITV signals back. However very weak and result in frozen image which is unviewable.

This is a disaster.

Just updated with a factory reset and I now have all ITV channels but no BBC.

Mike Potter: If you have your aerial is directed to the Langholm transmitter, then try manually tuning to UHF channel 57 for BBC.
