We have two TVs in our house, both connected to our aerial aligned to Bristol Kings Weston transmitter. Usually we have good reception on all channels on both TVs.

Recently, we have been getting poor reception ( pixellation, breaks in sound etc) on BBC1, BBC2, BBC 4, BBC News, BBC Parliament (all things on the BBC A Mux) on one of the two TVs -this is a small JVC TV about 1 year old. Other channels on that TV seem OK.

Our other TV, which is a large Samsung about 4 years old, still has good reception on ALL channels.

The JVC TV has a signal strength/quality indicator which shows quality of 50-60% on BBC A Mux, but 100% on all the other Mux. The Samsung does not have the same signal strength/quality indicator, but does show a bit error level of zero on BBC1, BBC 2 etc.

Could it be a temporary signal quality problem on the BBCA Mux from Kings Weston, that is enough to upset the JVC TV but not the Samsung? Do I need to report this? How do I do that?
