Film 4
Monday 26 March 2012 9:13PM

We live in St Albans and we have completely lost Film 4 and some other channels since Sunday. Why has this happened? It has been perfect for years? Have they suddenly reduced the transmitter power? If so why have they done this.

By how much are the digital transmitter powers going to be increased on the 8th April? We have difficulty with one of our three digital boxes which has a simple antenna in one bedroom at the moment but this might correct itself if the power is increased enough on all the digital channels. The (better?) box in the other bedroom works well with an identical set-up.

Sorry. Typing error I meant 'power increase on 18th April.'

jb38, thanks for comment. Reception is poor at the moment on some channels which from your reply will get better. But on BBC1 our box, which is new, has a really good picture and sound most of the time but occasionally loses sound and if it does it does not come back. We recorded something recently which had no sound after the first few minutes. Is there anything I can do about this?

Dave Lindsay: This correspondence has been most useful. With the digital change-over in our area we bought a new TV and we were not able to receive HD while my son who lives not too far away could and none of us could understand why. We can now see it is because he has a more expensive FreeviewHD TV and we haven't. We don't particularly want HD but this whole HD affair is much too complicated and misleading.
