ADRIAN: Dave, I now know why I lost my channels on the I-Can. When installing it I removed one of the 2 signal amplifiers/splitters I have ( connected in series). The signal was so low the I-Can did not see anything on channel 22 so gradually lost all channels. I have re-installed the second amplifier and re-scanned and now I've got all channels showing OK.

The last few days (1st June onwards) channel 4 has disappeared from freeview. Retuning one of our TVs lost all ref to it altogether.

We are on Sudbury Transmitter.
Any clues what I should do?? dont say Move!!

Clive: Ch4 is on the same transmitter as ITV1 so do you still get this? if so then carry out a "factory reset" on your TV, this sometimes called "default setting" on some equipment, then once done follow it up with another auto-tune.

All was working ok in all rooms, then suddenly am unable to receive CH4 or CH5 in one room. Have changed the outputs over on the splitter and also swapped the TV's but the problem remains in the same room.Have also replaced the connectors for that room but does not solve the problem

Ian.Wisbech,PE13 3RP.Sorry for my delayed reply but now you specified your postcode as such,is it only Channel 4 and Channel 5 that are giving you difficulties or is it the entire D3+4 multiplex that are problematic as Channel 4 and Channel 5 are all on the D3+4 multiplex on any main transmitter and relay mast.By inputting your full postcode is your aerial polarised horizontally and if so is it directed at either Sandy Heath,Belmont,Tacolneston or Waltham main transmitters.The D3+4 multiplex from Sandy Heath is on frequency 24,from Belmont it is on frequency 25,from Tacolneston on frequency 59 while from Waltham this is on frequency 54.There is a possibility that single frequency interference could be a likely cause in the affected room as such from an electrical appliance,etc.I would look up single frequency interference underlined somewhere in this text and you may have to perform a total resetting procedure as such.Try bypassing the splitter and see whether any improvement (in the room affected) is made.Or use a set-top aerial (if you have one),a piece of wire or a wee screwdriver inserted into the aerial socket of your appliance (in the room affected) whether that makes any difference whatsoever.
Just out of interest what transmitter/s are you on which i mentioned above,and as an indicator which local news bulletin/s do you receive in your house ?
