It seems to me that the Freeview service is run by geeks for Geeks. They seem to have no regard for the end user and continuously keep changing things for their advantage to the annoyance of the customer.

IMHO digital is a disaster - I am on the edge of the Sudbury transmitter at Chelmsford but want to use Sudbury as I am in East Anglia and want the East Anglia news etc.

Recently I lost Film4 and Yesterday channels presumably for the conveniece of the Geeks.

I guess i shall have to get in touch with my MP to express my disgust.

My official transmitter is Croydon which is all London stuff.

The geeks are rampant and stuff the customer seems to be the motto of Freview

ITV 3 signal is weak(rated 2/10) and does not give sound or picture much of the time.Retune does not help. This has only just started happening. advertisers are wasting their money. Post code is CM2 8EB

Darren: I am having problems - Transmitter CHannels 60 and 58 cannot be detected on my TV. e.g. I cannot get ITV 3 for instance.

This was happening last evening 29/04/2016 and today.

Sudbury (Suffolk, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Sunday 8 May 2016 4:21PM

I have lost transmission from


C60 and C58 in the last fortnight and C56 as of today 8/5/2016

We had been receiving the programmes on these IMUXs for several years.

Auto tuning on my TV finds only all channels other than the above.i.e.C41 C44 and C47.

It is not the television since both Freeview Boxes in the house suffer from this problem.

I was sent a C60 filter by At800 but this seemed to help as on Saturday when I fitted the filter the C60 IMUX was visible for manual tuning. This IMUX (C60) has now disappeared even with the filter fitted.

What is going on:

1. It does not seem to be a TV problem - both Freeview boxes both 'see' the same IMUXes

2. Does not seem to an aerial problem as we have been getting these IMUXes until recently.

3. Since C60 filter now makes no difference -it is not likely to be 4G interference.

So has anything happened/changed at Sudbury to result in what I describe?

My postcode is CM2 8EB .

Hi , I am using the Sudbury Transmitter - Drama(20) has such poor strength that it no longer registers when I retune the Freeview Channels - what is going on?

On another device which is tuned to drama - I have not retuned this box the Drama channel now gives no signal or just pixelates.

My post code is CM2 8EB Recently DRAMA channel signal has become so weak it does not register when I retune!!

I am using the Sudbury transmitter. I am coming to the conclusion that Freeview is a waste of space.
