Want to better understand the current TV faults? See the all new UK Free TV page

The "All transmitters with faults and engineering" page has been upgraded to make it easier to understand where the current faults are on the Freeview transmitter network.

The  All transmitters with faults and engineering   page has be
published on UK Free TV

See: All transmitters with faults and engineering

Following from your suggestions, I have made changes to the icons used to show which Freeview transmitters have fault or engineering status associated with them.

Previously, you had to look quite hard to see which transmitters had current faults, and which had faults listed for the last few days.

The new format for the page looks like this.

Only the sites with "live" faults are shown with the yellow symbol (those with Digital UK's "this week" status, a pink border).

I hope the above listed changes will help you to understand where the current faults and system outages are.

The new symbols carry though to other pages that shows transmitter symbols.

Sue Flower: Your reception (look at the Digital UK link) is a bit hit and miss - Belmont is possibly your best bet. But none of the options seem fantastic. If its been happening for weeks, then you might have a fault with your aerial as well. But check which transmitter your tuned to - it might be you've locked on to a transmitter which is a no hoper, hence the lack of signal.

I live in Middlesex near Heathrow airport, I have lost around 30 channels and the reception is poor on another 15. I have retuned my to with no success. BBC channels are ok.
Any ideas.

Chris: there is a possibility that weather conditions are currently affecting reception of some frequencies over the UK. The William Hepburn's tropospheric ducting forecast predicts that conditions should clear in your area by mid afternoon. I noticed incidentally that reception of 3 Counties radio on 104.5FM was possible in South Yorkshire at 9am this morning!
