Up untill 2 weeks ago I happily received ESPN (34) Sky Sports 1 (41) and 2 (42)from Sutton Coldfield transmitter through the sports package offered by TopUp TV. Now I have lost channels 41 and 42 completely, and on each retune of 3 different boxes and sets in the house they all perform the same jumping from Quest (38) to Gems TV (43. Sky News on 82 has also vanished, but ESPN on 34 works fine! What is happening? Top Up TV say they are broadcasting my Sky signal but Digital UK can comment on Sky, they say. Any help please?

Mike D Many thanks for your response. BBC 4 is no problem, as is BBC Parliament which I believe is also Multiplex B. I live at Compton Verney which is about 8 miles east of Stratford upon Avon and aerial is inside a bell tower pointing at Sutton Coldfield. Should I try Lark Stoke direction? Perhaps that is the the interfering transmitter? I have tried unplugging aerial halfway through scan but that has made no difference. Perhaps current tech work at transmitter will resolve. Paying TopUp TV for an unobtainable service starts to hurt! Thanks, James

Hi KMJ, many thanks for your suggestions. I have not changed aerial direction and am assuming all channels are coming from Sutton Coldfield, and were perfectly well received until end April. Removing aerial and selectively scanning still does not 'find' channels 41, 42 or 82. I've cancelled my Sky Sports subscription and will try again in September. Many thanks again. James
