Mark: Its difficult to say exactly what the reason is for you experiencing this peculiar problem as a break on the coax's inner connector either where it joins the coax plug or alternatively at the point where it connects to the aerial could cause this, but on the other hand a signal level being received that's on the verges of being too high can also be responsible, as devices operating under conditions of being potentially overloaded can play up in a variety of ways.

Although you can check this out by trying a test using either a set top aerial or alternatively a short piece of wire (about 18" min) connected into the inner receptacle on the aerial socket, if the BBC channels return by having done this then you will require an attenuator to be placed in line with the boxes aerial socket, these generally costing less than £5.00 or so from TV shops or from numerous e-bay sources, one rated about 3 or 6db should be suffice or a variable type could also be used, albeit these being rather crude in operation devices.

Mark: Needless of course to say, but should you be using any type of booster on your aerial then by-pass it.

les: There is no ITV4 HD channel.

Where does your aerial point?

The Westwood Ho! transmitter broadcasts only PSB channels which don't carry ITV4.

Refer to this page that show the six multiplexes and the services carried on each:

DTG :: DTT Services by Multiplex

ITV4 is on COM6. You may be able to receive the COM channels from Preseli.

If you have a TV that has ITV4 tuned, then go to it and bring up the signal strength screen and observe the UHF channel number that it is tuned to. I expect that it will be C49 which is Preseli. Then go to the HD PVR manual tune function and tune to the same UHF channel.

As your local transmitter does not broadcast COM channels (see the link above) and therefore if you are receiving them and only have an aerial on your local transmitter then you are picking them up off-beam of your aerial (and probably opposite polarity) so you may have intermittant/poor reception.

I can't get ITV4 in North Norfolk. Can you tell me if it is possible to receive it?

Ted Capon: Unfortunately as North Norfolk is a relatively large area and with a few iffy places for reception, your question regarding the reception of ITV4 cannot be assessed properly without knowledge of your particular location, this in the form of a post code or at least one from nearby, a shop etc!

FRANK: Rowridge broadcasts horizontally and vertically, and has been doing so for all channels since 18th April 2012.

The Commercial (COM) channels aren't as strong horizontally, and hence switching to vertical polarisation (where all channels are the same power) may cure poor reception of the COMs.

However, the lower power horizontally polarised COMs aren't on "low" power by any means, them being 50kW each which is more powerful than some main stations.
