I live at YO42 1NN, east of York. For about 10 days my reception on a lot of channels has been very poor - as bad as no sound 95% of the time. This happened quite suddenly. I just did a new channel search and now my channel list misses out all the ITV and C4 stations - to about 1/4 of what I could see. My wife will definitely hassle me for this. My Aerial points at Emley Moor, after all I do live in Yorkshire. Can anyone please tell me what is going on? I have heard nothing. My TV is a good one, a recent Panasonic, so I don't think it's to do with that. I am very annoyed about this. City dwellers get sorted out as fast as a click of the finger, but stray from a city and you might as well not exist.

I "may" have respite from the loss of groups of channels problem I reported a day or two ago: I retuned the freeview channels a second time a bit later on and the set found all the channels, with subsequent good reception on all channels. I suspect that the retune algorithm inside the set may not be totally obvious. It may have needed a clear out (which the 1st attempt to tune did) before it was in a good position to find new channels. Just guessing, but I have certainly seen analogous things in my use of software on PCs (step forward Microsoft). HTH.
