Film 4
Tuesday 18 January 2011 10:10PM

Posted Tuesday 18th January.

I live in Calne, Wiltshire and i got a professional person to come and move the aerial to face the Mendip Transmitter last summer, 2010.
It was previously facing towards the Calne transmitter but you could never get channel 5 on it, not until Sky and Freeview came along.
So being pointed towards the Mendip Transmitter i thought i would get a better selection and quality of channels available to watch which weren't available just on Freeview. Channels like Dave, More 4, Fiver, Yesterday etc..

All was fine until around October time when then most of category C channels which included (Dave, E4, Sky 3, etc..) went, as the signal got really bad and all you got was a badly pixelated picture, and unwatchable.

Turning on to watch Film4 today, all i get is a total black screen and my tv says 'no signal'.

I don't think there is anything else, which i can do to change things and make the channels come back, but if anyone has any suggestions to help, i'm open to hear them.

I would also be interested to hear if anyone else is having the same level of channel decrease and unavailability as i am.

Kind Regards

I've just seen on here that everyone has to do a retune from 11th Jan.
I just did one and i'm happy that i now have Film 4 back, but the retune didn't help get back or correct all other channels from cat C that are still unavailable due to poor signal strength..Which worked fine 3 months ago.
