Hi I am nowhere near Manchester my transmitter being Stockland Hill, Wenvoe Menedip , BA11 2QR

Ihave retuned two Freview TVs without seeing a whisper of Movies4Men.

Does that mean it is not available? Or should I try tuning manually. If so, how? IE What data do I input?

Thanks for your help.

MikeP: HI MIke

I had an aerial engineer who told me he thought there was a problem with the signal which was dropping in and out (though he also said I must have picked it up from another transmitter which is clearly not the case) . If I manually tune to the channels to check strength it varies from 65 or better to no signal. It is possible to watch but you lose the signal about every minute for a few seconds? Is it possible I am getting some local interference on this frequency . |I should add there has been no previous problem, I had all channels until recently and I have two aerials though now both TVs on both aerials will not auto-tune to Frequency 33 ( you said com 8 but I believe it is com 7). Channels affected include BBC Four HD, BBC News HD, CBeebies HD and CBS Drama as well as a favourite of mine Talking Pictures TV.

I guess it sounds like single frequency interference?

Any further advice you can give me is welcome. Thank you.

Mendip (Somerset, England) Full Freeview transmitter

Mike and JB38 This problem is persisting and I am informed many people in the Frome and Warminster area cannot get a good signal on Flux 33.It is intermittent. The TV engineer I mentioned who claims a perfect signal in Warminster cannot get it either. At what stage do we stop blaming the weather . Note there are BBC stations on this frequency, like BBC4HD and BBC News HD.

MikeP: Is there any way of discovering when the engineering is likely to be completed. Can we contact Mendip transmsitter direct?
