Checked the channels again at my mum's house (communal aerial) after the Winter Hill changes on the 20th and the usual BBC channels on 1, 2, etc are totally gone but did manage to find them on the 751 onwards.

From what I can find out this is temporary and on the next major rescan on April 2020 these will also be lost as you have 2 months to replace/fix aerial.

Also is it only PBS1 that has moved or will other channels on the April rescan also disappear?

I'll have to explain this to the housing agency who run the houses here.

After the final maintence to Winter Hill here in Liverpool the service has gone even worse than it was back in February, it goes from around 51 channels to 131 with still some missing and constant breakup of the picture and sound.

Having to get back into with the housing association who owns these properties again over the shared aerial responsiblilty as signal strength now fluctuates between 4% - 15% and quality stays around 45%.

Just can't afford at the moment the cost of getting a new proper one fitted to the house.
