Rowridge (Isle Of Wight, England) transmitter
Thursday 6 November 2014 4:30PM

The 2 tv's that we have running on free view, have over the last 3 / 4 days appeared to be affected by what i can only think is the cold weather. We have always been affected by the wind, more so on itv but with the cold weather we have lost all sound and picture on all channels from about 6pm through to about 1pm the next day.
Is this a common thing with cold weather ???
I am going to try to turn the ariel so the fins are in a vertical position as at the moment they are horizontal and i understand that the vertical might be better. Please correct me if i am wrong about this.

Being reasonably close to the transmitter i find it hard to believe we get such rubbish reception.

If i can't get any joy from this i think i might have to go down the route of getting a video sender to transfer the sky signal from the main tv.

Any advice would be appreciated.
