Jenkins: This website has no connection with True Movies or any other channel, so we've had nothing to do with the changes. I would suggest you make your feelings know to the broadcaster, as they're the only people who can do anything to change the situation.

To give any meaningful help we need your full post code please. Then we can look up which transmitter your are using and find out if there are any reception or transmission problems.

Having said that, it is likely that you have a connection problem with your TV set. Please check all the aerial leads and unplug each aerial plug and then re-insert it - that will clear any corrosion on the plug or socket.
