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.

nick: Check the transmitter - if its fine, its you. Probably a problem with your system, and that mux is the first one to go.

I understand that transmitters are directional, with power varying, depending on direction. Is it possible to ascertain the output of Varteg Hill to the East towards SA10 9EY. And what type of aerial and gain are required for a decent reception.
Thank you
Roger

Roger Kitsell: Varteg Hill is a radio transmitter carrying the BBC national stations on DAB along with Radios 1-4, Radio Wales and Radio Cymru on FM. It doesn't carry any TV services. Are you looking for an external aerial for FM/DAB or are you looking for an aerial to receive Freeview from Ystalyfera which is the TV transmitter indicated as covering your postcode?

Hi, Since Saturday the Winter hill transmission of TV Mux channels in RF frequency 31 are no longer being detected by all the TVs & DVR, however there are some times in the day when the old main frame can be viewed. This impacts BBC FOUR HD, BBC NEWS HD, Channel 4+1 HD, More4 HD, 47 HD, etc... Advice from Freeview TV was to contact AT800.tv, who has provided a 800Mhz filter to remove the 4G signal, this as expected has made no difference. I have asked othe neighbours and they are also having the same issues so I can assume my equipement is OK, which has been in use for the last four years with no issues. Location is PR6 8QB, very close to Winter hill hence all other channel signal strength is very high, apart from the channel 31 mux this weekend. Any advice on how we could inform Winter hilll there could be an issue which needs investigating?
