We are in a bad area SO40 2TN, but Talking Pictures was a perfect channel until 30th Nov. when retuning occurred. We now get major picture breakup. Some other channels are poor except HD

Sorry Steven

Are weather conditions that much of a factor?

Brent Holloway: 30th November was the date that Talking Pictures moved from COM7 to the COM6 multiplex, hence my question as to whether you are experencing the same problem on 4music and Yesterday, which are both on COM6. Digital UK predict a good signal from Rowridge at your postcode. Have you done any of the checks that I suggested? Weather conditions are unlikely to be a problem at this time of year, other than any damage that the weather may cause to your aerial and external cabling.

As you have said I am having exactly the same severe picture break up on 4 music and Yesterday.
All of my cables seem ok

Brent Holloway: What signal strength and quality readings do you get on Talking Pictures and what do you get on BBC One HD and also BBC News HD?

Brent Holloway: Is that 6 out of 10 or 6 out of 100? What about signal strength? What readings do you get on BBC One HD and BBC News HD?

Harry: Talking Pictures moved from COM7 to COM6 at the end of November, hence a retune being necessary if your TV doesn't update it's channel list automatically. Try a manual tune on UHF C55 which should add Talking Pictures and any other missing channels from COM6 at Winter Hill.

Hi, I can't get channel 81 on Freeview. Does the coverage from the broadcast signal (Emley Moor transmitter) apply? Thanks
