After years of problem free digital reception, I (and my next door neighbour) in the last few days have lost some but not all channels. BBC1, 2 and some other channels pixellate or disappear completely in the evening and night, though fine during the day. Signal strength is 10/10, but signal quality varies from 9 down to 1 after dark for BBC1, 2 etc. Other channels remain fine even at night.
What can we do?

Dear R Slater,
I have a similar problem (see above). I spoke to www.digitaluk.co.uk on 08456 50 50 50 and they said it might be work on the transmitters in preparation for switchover. You could try calling them. Whereabouts are you? I am SW13.

Another possibility is someone nearby with CB radio.

Mike Knowles: And everyone else. I spoke to Digital.co.uk who said that transmitter work will probably be affecting digital channels in the weeks before the digital switchover in April. We have lost all channels except sometimes BBC4, but even that disappeared over the last 2 days. This has been going on since 20 Feb here in SW13. I do not know what can be done, if anything, other than get the transmitter engineers to change something. Gerard

I am disappointed I did not get any comments on my posts. Good news is that the signal has improved again in the last few days (after 3 weeks of pixellation). I think the reason is that engineering work on the transmitters also affected digital quality, although it was supposed only to affect analogue.
