Hi. For me to help you, just think of your problem and answer each question in turn. First, are you seeing the words "No Signal" or "Technical fault" on the TV screen?

Assuming that it's the Crystal Palace transmitter that you are receiving (a full postcode would be needed to check if you might be receiving a different one) then the cause is likely to be that the transmitter is currently listed for Planned Engineering with "Possible weak signal".
Other than that, check all your coax connections for breaks, corrosion etc.

Mark: Durris (almost due North from you) is coming up as the most likely transmitter at your postcode, with reasonable reception also predicted from Angus (74 degree compass bearing, between North East and East). Craigkelly is not even listed as being possible to receive at that location.

Whoops, typo there, the Angus transmitter is compass bearing 334 degrees (fractionally W of NNW) 74km away ;)

Durris should give the best reception, UHF channel numbers are C28, C25, C22, C23, C26, C30, C55 in the order PSBs1-3, COMs 4-7.

Angus UHF channels are C39, C42, C45, C33, C36, C48, C55, C34 but reception is not quite as good & ArqB/COM6 reception is variable, there's also a Local Mux C34.
