Daniel Worthy:

That is what is often suggested by the technical contributors to this website if an initial retune does not resolve the issue. The retune made necessary by adjustments at Mendip simply required most people to do a full retune. It does not require any change to a domestic aerial system, though some communal aerial system have filters that may need adjusting.

Incidentally, the name 'Arial' refers to a type face, I think you mean an 'aerial' or an 'antenna'.

I am no longer able to get Dave it seems.
This is very annoying as it is usually the alternative to there being nothing watchable on BBC or anywhere else (Channel 5 is a total waste of space !)
Does anyone know what to do ?
I have an aerial engineer booked for monday from Freeview, but I don't hold out much hope.

Same thing here - can't watch Dave as 'no signal', but other channels are fine. We're in ME19 6NW, so not far from previous poster. No loose or damaged cables.
