I have an aerial on roof directed to Crystal Palace. Everything has been fine for years and always update when notified of new channels. Recently we have been experiencing poor signal for BBC 1 & 2 but BBC 1 HD & 2 HD have been relatively fine. On the non HD channels the picture starts to break up but after a while it recovers. It will e okay for a few days and then the break up occurs again. Last night we lost BBC 1 & 2 completely. The HD channels are still okay as are all the other channels. Have reset / retune a couple of times and now it does not even find any signal so does not allocate a channel number to them. HD versions are still fine. When retuning we have 5 TV channels with from memory 91 total channels.

We have recently seen large "birds" hanging around on the aerial near to where the cable picks up its feed. My wife thinks they might have been pecking that termination point causing damage. I am not sure this could be the case as I would have thought that would impact all of the channel and not just these two.

Before I get an aerial person in to check wanted to see what anyone might think about what is happening.
