Sky Sports still keeps disappearing or is very pixelly (can't think of a better description). Beats me if the signal is too strong or two weak. All I know was there was absolutely nothing wrong with it until the switchover. Waltham switched and we lost it altogether then Sutton Coldfield switched and it was fine for about 3 weeks, now it as bad as it was when Waltham first switched.

All I know is the whole thing has been extremely irritating! And I just wish someone would sort it out because there seem to be loads of people having problems.

Mike Dimmick: My aerial does point at Sutton Coldfield and I get BBC One East Midlands from the Derby transmitter. This is why I can't understand why I have problems.

How do I check the box has tuned in services for the wanted transmitter? It is a BT Vision box.

The trouble is, we didn;t suffer from the 'digital overlap' issue until the switchover. You would have thought they would have done something to prevent this. We have had a new (massive aerial) fitted by the HA and it was working perfectly until switchover.

Sorry I am a big believer in if it ain;t broke, don;t fix it. This has caused problems for loadsof people in the middle where they get more than one transmitter.

Any help to check that the box has tuned in to services for the wanted transitter would be great. Can I block the Waltham signal?

Is there a problem today because of the weather. All the channels on 674 (ITV1 in particular but all the others on that frequency) and 642 seem to have signal quality down to 15% and a signal strength of about 25%? The picture keeps freezing and pixelating and then states the Freeview signal is of twoo poor a quality. Have disconnected and reset the box but the fact the BBC isgnals are fine, I can't see it being a problem with my equipment or surely all the challens would have some sort of interference.

It is a pain as the programs are impossible to watch.

This seems to be happening a lot since the digital switchover.

We have had new aerials - the HA came out and put them in. Seriously why on earth can't they sort these problems out - isn;t that what we pay TV licences for????
