I live in Teddington, Middlesex. I have direct line of sight to teh Crystal alice transmitter. I am using a PC with Windows 7 Media Center for all m TV viewing/recording. My freeview reception is generally rock solid, but recently I have been seeing occasional picture breakup on BBC One HD and one or two other channels. I tried re-tuning, but this does not appear to have fixed the problem. I believe my areal and cable are good.
I notice that the BBC One HD Mux is on low power right now, is that likely to be the problem?

I live about 12 km from the Crystal Palace transmitter. I have direct line of site to it, I can see it from my roof.
I have been receiving all the HD channels using a BlackGold tuner card in my Windows 7 Media Center PC for years. Now, suddenly I no longer receive the HD channels. I have done a complete rescan and managed to pick up 93 channels, but none of the HD channels.
Have they stopped broadcasting for some reason?
