Freeview reception has changed? | Freeview Interference
Monday 7 August 2017 10:46AM


My neighbour and I have had the same problem for about 6 weeks now. We have independent systems and separate aerials, but the symptoms are exactly the same.

We point to the Dover transmitter from postcode TN35 4SX and until the problem started, had had perfect reception.

All HD channels and some other ones such as Food Network & Dave, now have predictably poor signal quality (around 4/10).

I have re-tuned a couple of times (yesterday being the latest), with no improvement.

The defective programs all show as on CH22, CH23 and CH59 which I find odd since online info suggests Dover transmits HD programs on CH53. I have tried a manual tune of CH53 and get no signal at all.

All other CHs show 9/10 & 9/10 Strength & Quality, so 'line-of--sight' may not be the cause.

Any advice gratefully received.
