Hi. Looking for advice after loosing all of my signal from the Chatton transmitter. All signals disappeared around 48 hours ago but then reappeared as normal yesterday for around 4 hours in the afternoon but went again and have not returned. We have had a full new aerial and cabling system installed on the 3rd Jan which has worked well with no issues.

I noted on engineering page that chatton for Berwick (where we receive our signal from) had planned engineering work on it's relay this week so hope that this is the cause of the problem not our new system. It states interruption to service possible. Is there anywhere we can get information on this work and its probable effect on our service.

We have two TV's one through a BT box and the other direct from the aerial source.

We have recently lost all of our channels with a no signal warning. This happened around 48 hours ago and they briefly returned yesterday afternoon before disappearing again around 5pm. We still have no signal.

We receive our signal from Chatton and notice in the Freeview engineering schedule that work is planned on the Berwick relay this week with possible service interruption.

Our aerial system is all new from the 3rd January and has worked perfectly since installation. It worked well yesterday when the signal returned and all wiring, connections and aerial look good.

Is it possible to find out if this outage is a result of the planned engineering works and if so how long this might go on for....come on guys it's the rugby this weekend....
