I have now lost all signal can you tell me what the problem mig
Friday 13 November 2015 1:34PM

Lost all freeview channels my flat at a property in BH1 1PW. All other residents report the same from yesterday (12/11). When retuning, only managed to retrieve 37 channels, but the signal is either absent, or I just get a blocky picture. Landlord's maintenance people say they can't see any problem, and that other properties have reported the same. Find this hard to believe.

Thanks for your reply. I'm afraid that it's got even worse, though. Latest retune delivers 0 channels! I did receive an e-mail from the landlord's maintenance people, who still say that they are getting complaints from the whole area (they have a lot of properties). She also mentioned some maintenance going on on the 11th, but I can find no reference to this for Rowridge, which I assume is the local transmitter. The aerial points in that direction, anyway.
The reception, even at its best, is not great; the less popular channels often drop out (Pick, Yesterday etc), but BBC & ITV are normally fine. If and when it returns, is there any value to buying a signal booster for my own use?
