published on UK Free TV

The problem could be one of:

- the aerial has been moved or damaged;

- the cables or connectors that connect the digibox to the aerial are damaged;

- the digibox has broken.

If you have a "spare" digibox you use this to test the aerial connection. Can you still watch analogue TV OK?

bodmin : Indoor aerial are not suitable for Freeview reception, you need to fit a rooftop aerial.

Hi Braintist, I am in the NW11 area. My freeview TV was working fine until this morning. I have tried everything mentioned above but to no avail. Please advise if there is an issue in the area. I have a very hazy picture with only 4 analogue channels. None of my digital ones are coming up. Really would prefer to watch the Open last couple of hours on the telly as opposed to the BBC iplayer. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Last night we lost all TV signal on both TV's one has a digi box and the other has freeview built in. On the screen they both display bad or no signal. tried re tuninng many times, unpluging for 30sec and trying again but still nothing. Is it to do with the switch over that is happening for my area in September or is it my aerial?

Hannah do you have an amplifier to feed the two tv's or two aerials if it is an amplifier is it switched on or has it been unpluged. If you have two aerials have they fallen down either you might need to call a local aerial man not an 0800 number. Hope this helps

I live in swindon have a brand new freeview tv and recordable box suddenly lost all signal last Friday tried to retune tv lost all channels, on the recordable box the signal is weak so that on some channels you can see a flickering picture but that is all. Is there a problem in Swindon or could recent winds have moved the aieral? It still seems to be pointing the same way as others in street very frustrated as now no tv at all.
