Without a postcode, can't be certain which transmitter might be being used (there isn't one in Eastbourne itself) but there is engineering works going on on a number of Meridian transmitters this week, which is the likely exp[explanation, but tell your Nan NOT to retune whilst this is going on, unless there is a specific on screen message to retune.

I'm surprised no-one else has responded and sorry I've been unable until now. Whilst there is a low power relay transmitter at Eastbourne now transmitting the 6 main muxes (not sure why a search didn't find it) the reception from it at your Nan's postcode is virtually non-existent and unreliable, similarly the Hastings (& Bexhill) transmitters. If your Nan's aerial is pointing at either of these the rods will be vertical & reception will undoubtedly also have been affected by many other recent transmitter changes. It's possible if it's an old aerial installation that it's pointing at the Dover transmitter (will be a C/D group aerial with rods horizontal) in roughly an ENE (60deg.) direction. This transmitter is undergoing retune events and will require a new aerial (Group K) if it's an old C/D group one, but predicted reception will be unreliable for the COM multiplexes.

The best and reliable reception is predicted to be from the Heathfield transmitter which requires a group B aerial rods horizontal pointing very slightly W of N (352deg.).
To me it sounds like you need to get a look (or someone for you) at your Nan's installation and get it checked.

Please provide a full post code so that we can look up the expected reception at your location.

Please also check all your aerial cables and connections.

terence miller: The best aerial is generally one mounted on the roof and pointed at the transmitter that provides the strongest signal (if you provide a full postcode we can advise which one that is likely to be at your location). An indoor aerial may work if you're in a strong signal area close to a transmitter.
