I live in the centre of Ballymena and had great Freeview reception until I re-tuned as instructed on Wednesday 3rd September.
Now I try re-tuning several times a day but always get no signal, and instructions to attach the TV ariel which of course is already attached. So I have absolutely no channels.
I have a smart TV so I can watch Netflix using the internet connection but
I really miss the normal TV channels.
I have looked at the map of N. Ireland and it says there are no problems with masts in Northern Ireland.
So I just don't know what to do. Is it going to be fixed or do you give up and get cable.

This is Shirley in ballymena. I removed the TV ariel from the DVD recorder and connected it directly to the TV. Then I re-tuned and it worked. I now have hundreds of channels, all working including radio. I even have 3 RTE channels which I did'nt have before. Tomorrow I can figure out how to connect the DVD and get it working.
This just seems strange to have to connect your TV/DVD in a different way but if it works who cares.
I am writing this in case it helps someone else because it has been driving me mad for 2 days.
Good luck.
