We have lost all MUXs on Sutton circa yesterday, and haven't been able to get anything back despite frequent retunes on two boxes. We did get some of the BBC channels appear briefly tuning into the 800's for a bizarre reason.

We live in Duffield (N Derby) DE56 4FS, and know that the signal is pretty marginal and wondered if any of the power increases on other transmitters may have caused interference resulting in us not able to receive the marginal signal from Sutton.

Prior to the last couple of days we were able to receive all MUXs with only signal dropout issues on ITV in the evenings.

The aerial has not moved and the cables are all OK. Just seems bizare that a number of others have noted signal strength drops.

In relation to previous post I noticed that the Nottingham Relay was turned up to 400w from 40w yesterday and not sure if this could be causing any interference. It seems to have been causing issues for people in the Derby area pointing at Waltham ? But wou;dn't have thought it would have affected me pointing at Sutton ????

KMJ: Thanks, something seems to have happened though as I still have the same signal strength on all the Sutton MUXs, but no signal quality. Could there be any interference from elsewhere ? I wouldn't have thought it would affect all MUX's tho. I am rather foxed, just glad I installed a sky dish a few weeks ago for freesat using an old skybox.

I live in Duffield, Derbyshire and use the Waltham transmitter. Have lost all Freeview services overnight on both TVs, and noticed that the repeater aerials in Derbyshire are all operating on reduced power, yet it shows no Engineering work or faults on Waltham. Is anyone else suffering also ? Have they reduced the signal strength at Waltham ?
