Last night (23/01/2011) Freeview on the Digibox was working fine, particularly on channel 80 the BBC News Channel. This morning the picture appeared stuck and the audio was very occasional, brief and clipped ie. it was unwatchable. I cycled the power on the Digibox but then got no sound or picture and the words "No Signal". I have connected the TV direct to the aerial and get Analog channels 1 - 5 fine. Going back to the original setup and I get nothing. A channel rescan gives no channels found. The digital setup still seems rather flaky so it's just as welll analog still works. I believe that we are receiving signal from the Hemel Hempstead transmitter, but this site says that there are no problems with that transmitter. I don't believe that anything changed our end over night so I conclude that the problem must be in the transmissions of perhaps atmospherics, 'though the weather seems fairly stable.
