From Wikipedia: For the indie rock band, see The Dramas. The enactment of drama in theatre, performed by actors on a stage before an audience, presupposes collaborative modes of production and a collective form of reception. The structure of dramatic texts, unlike other forms of literature, is directly influenced by this collaborative production and collective reception.2 The early modern tragedy Hamlet 1601 by Shakespeare and the classical Athenian tragedy Oedipus the King c. - en.wikipedia.org en.wikipedia.org link icon read more about Drama on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

Noslek:

Why did you retune?

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

If you are trying to use the Salisbury transmitter, it does not transmit COM4 on channel 25. It is no channel 29 from Salisbury. Look at Coverage Checker - Detailed View to see the channels in used by Salisbury and Rowridge.

For us contributors to offer any meaningful assistance we need you to provide your full post code, a partial will not help. That way could find out which of the over 1100 transmitters you might be using.

RG29 1AR Hannington transmitter

We had lost signals for our HD channels including BBC News HD and BBC4 HD. We retuned before raising this comment and have now lost more TV channels including Drama, which we had been watching prior to the retune.

We now have no reception for channels 39+, 40, 55 and 56. What is happening at Hannington?

We have a Humax FVP-5000T.

Tony: There are no faults showing for Hannington and nobody else is reporting any problems. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Retuning was a bad idea as you've now deleted the previously correct tuning data for the missing channels.

Annie147: Probably because it isn't broadcast from the transmitter you're using. If you provide a full postcode we can see which transmitters are available at your location and whether you might be able to receive Drama and other commercial channels from any of them.

We have a problem every day with Drama channel. At certain times of day, mostly between about 6pm an 8pm the picture and sound keep dropping out then returning after a number of seconds. The TV information shows that the signal strength is constantly above 90% but the signal quality cycles up and down between 90% and 10%.
as if another signal is beating with it. My postcode is NG9 6NF
