I've been experiencing the same problem as highlighted by many others here, this weekend was particularly bad with three MUX's showing 100% signal but 0% quality = "Signal lost". A complete rescan picked up five different BBC1's, so even though I couldn't receive my usual BBC1 some of the others did work some of the time (came and went), which lead me to believe my usual signal (Bluebell Hill) was being corrupted by neighbouring transmitters (Dover, Tunbridge Wells, Heathfield), some of which are transmitting on the same frequencies. The explanation about the Inversion Effect above does seem to explain it. Lets hope the weather changes soon as I also missed the new Titanic series! - They repeat everything else except the thing you want to see!

KMJ,Derby: Thanks a lot for the info, redirecting the aerial shouldn't be a problem if necessary, strangely, this weekend Mux2 was the strongest and most reliable of all the signals, my theory was this is one of the channels T/Wells doesn't also use.
