My postcode is SY4 2HG and I have been getting signals from The Wrekin transmitter for over ten years.

Why now does ITV3 Channel 10 keep on failing with "No signal". It mainly seems to occur during peak evening times for quite long periods for the past few weeks. I have tried retuning when it is down, but channel 10 comes up with "Invalid DVB channel2. When channel 10 livens up again, I get the New channel notice, retune and it is reinstated.

With so many complaints surely those responsible for the transmitter should be doing something about it and providing an answer.

Get a new ariel to solve problems with getting ITV3, 5*, 5USA,ESPN etc all on Multiplex channel A.
Prior to switching off analogue last April, these channels were all OK and for several months afterwards. However since September they started to break up and then totally failed with a "No signal" on the TV. Although I am only 18 miles from the Wrekin transmitter, all previous advice about retuning etc was useless. I have now tried by replacing my standard ariel with a 48 element high gain one in the roof space and I have at last got these missing channels back. However this does make nonsense of advice given on the digital switchover that digital. transmissions would be increased in strength.
