Just an observation, not a question, as others may have experienced the same.
I live in Exmouth and get my signal from the Stockland Hill transmitter. My aerial is in the loft and the signal is amplified by a mast head amplifier, Over the last few days, my Freeview reception has been bad on most channels. After re-tunes on 24 and 25 Nov 13, reception was no better and I lost all but about 20 channels out of over 100.
Today 26 Nov I retuned again and all channels were back again with fairly good reception.
I have no idea what caused the deterioration, but I wonder if the recent cold weather has had an effect . . . .

Licence fee? There are lots of people who live in the UK and pay the Licence Fee but are not allowed to watch BBC programmes when holidaying/staying abroad. It's surely not beyond the wit of man to devise a 'log on' system for such occasions. At the very least this could easily be incorporated into BBC iplayer. It seems somewhat unfair to have paid the licence fee and then be refused access to the programmes that the fee pays for.

Many thanks for your periodic emails and updates!

Your phrase in today's update "So, if you find something isn't working as it should, please bear with me " reminded me of a notice I once saw in Bristol Airport during refurbishment::

"Please bare with us while we enhance our duty free store."
