Before last week all channels were fine
Yes its Sutton.

Unfortunately my neighbour chucked freeview in the bin before the switchover - he couldnt get a decent signal and wasnt prepared to pay more to get one. My other neighbours are OAP's so I'm not going there!

This week all BBC channels have significantly reduced power ( 3 bars or 30% on the Humax) These were at 5 bars like all the rest before last week.

The other (MUXES?) are between 50-60% still.
It still only the BBC ones giving trouble.

If it was cables or plugs all of them would be at fault.

IF it was anything at all at my end - all of them would have problems.

I saw little or no increase in power after switchover at all but all channels worked reliably so I didnt care.

Last week they did work
This week we have no BBC channels

Nothing changed here.
It seems pretty clear cut to me.

Yesterday I spent 2 hours on the roof moving the aerial back and forth - ended up putting it back where it was installed by the engineer.

They have reduced the power - it no longer works.
If they worked on the aerials they left something loose or missing.
If they worked on the transmitters their readings are wrong or they deliberately reduced power.

Who do I sue? Anyone have a phone number I can shout at? Would screaming loudly on the BBC web site have any effect?

We now have a whole bunch of the best TV channels we can't watch. And whats worse - the kids aren't happy.

Who exactly transmits from Sutton -

I'm open to suggestions here but lets not run round in circles anymore.

(If any of that sounds ungrateful I dont mean it to be - I'm just exhasperated)
