Cannot view any ArqA C59 channels today, but has been ok recently - all others fine with no problems. Live in Sutton Courtenay.
Do not seem to be any problems mentioned on Oxford transmitter - wondered what could be the culprit/how to solve. Unless somehow due to it being overcast and windy today.....Suggestions welcomed.

Quick update: Still unable to view ArqA C59 channels on any of my freeview TV's. Messages on various TV's refer to "Weak or no signal" or "None". Just wondered whether 4G could be causing problem?
All other channels continue to be fine....just ArqA.

Same on all my freeview TV's; all working perfectly on all apart from ArqA C59 programmes. Only noticed problems with ArqA yesterday. Unfortunately I do not have alternative to my rooftop aerial which seems to be picking up all other signals well. Bizarre.

Have been looking more closely at my location in relation to Oxford transmitter and mobile phone masts. Apparently 2 EE phone masts within 1.5km of my address and seem to be broadly right behind my aerials line of sight to transmitter. Notes indicate ArqA in higher risk range for 4G interference. Could this be cause of my problem?

No indication on at800 that 4G operational in my area at present and immediate neighbours confirmed no Freeview issues with ArqA C59 programmes all OK, including Sky News - they have aerial in loft, mine is higher up on chimney breast.
Seems to be single multiplex problem that suddenly developed on Wednesday.
Lagbear distribution box in loft seems to be functioning ok and the RF Out on my Sky box is set to 40, which should not cause any conflict.Have also done freeview reset.
Signal Strength/Quality as indicated by my Toshiba TV for each multiplex are:
C50 Midway between Weak & Average/Poor
C53 Average/Average
C55 Midway between Weak & Average/Poor
C59 No signal
C60 Strong/Good

A very mixed bag og strengths/quality.
Looks like I will need to get someone in to sort things out.

Quick update on the deterioration and loss of C59 signal that I posted about earlier. Called out aerial installers to check things out.
No problem at all with the aerial (very good signal) and cable from aerial to loft distribution amplifier replaced - although no signs of water).
Signal strength now strong with good quality on all tv's in the house. Things have never been this good; makes me wonder if poor quality cable was used when by previous installer.
Another case of cable being the problem.
