Barry:

Pendle Forest is a relay of Winter Hill where there is engineering work this week, so I guess that there may be possible service interruptions. Are you still having no signal?
There is also the possibility that current weather conditions which are affecting radio tropospheric propagation may cause interference and so affect people's reception.

Please see the many posts from the regular contributors on the True Entertainment pages https://ukfree.tv/channels/channel/TRUEE where it explains about the changes and suggested actions to complain.

Put your postcode into http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker/main/index/dummy/NA/yes to see predicted reception at your location.

Jen:

Has your signal returned now? An Automatic Retune when there is loss of signal usually results in loss of channels, it's best to wait until signals return. The only time this doesn't apply is when there has been a change of UHF Channels (a retune event as there was on July 17th) as part of the 700Mhz clearance where you are generally notified by on-screen messages in the days just before the change.

Depending on your location your may currently suffer loss of signals due to weather conditions affecting propagation of signals resulting in interference and loss of signal.

PBS America

k bennett:

As mention in the post previous to yours, PBS America is on the COM8 multiplex (LCN91) see http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/channels/channel_listings
It depends which transmitter you are receiving as to whether it has COMs 7&8.
If you put your postcode into http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker/main/index/dummy/NA/yes it will give you which transmitters and multiplexes are available and the predicted reception at your location.

Peter Wotton:

Those two channels are on the ArqA multiplex (UHF C24 at Caradon Hill). Put your postcode unto http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker/main/index/dummy/NA/yes to see the transmitters you might receive and the predicted reception at your location. Do check your TV tuning to see that you are correctly tuned to the UHF channels for Caradon Hill.

Are you having problems with any other channels (LCNs) on the ArqA multiplex? see http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/channels/channel_listings

Please also note that reception of all multiplexes may be subject to interference due to the current weather & propagation conditions.

Emley Moor (Kirklees, England) transmitter

MR C CHAPPELL:

There are no current reported problems at the transmitter. I would check all your connections by unplugging your coax leads, inspecting them and plugging them in again - this should help clear any dirty connections. How long is it since the problem started?
Are there any other sets receiving signals from the same aerial, and are they all ok?
