By providing a full postcode (such as W1A 1AA), national grid reference (for example SE123456) or latitude, longitude pair (like 54, -0.5) this page will provide a map, terrain plot and detailed information of the location showing the UK and RoI television transmitters that it is possible you receive Freeview, Freeview HD, Youview, BT TV and Saorview from.

(Don't know your postcode? Find it at Post Office Postcode finder).

UK Free TV uniquely shows you transmitter coverage maps, aerial to transmitter terrain plots, the closest 10 mobile phone masts (for possible 5G-at-800 interference) as well as tabulated information (sorted by direction, by received signal strength, by frequency, by service names or by transmitter name).

These predictions are based upon a rooftop aerial and depend on the suitability of the aerial, the distance to the transmitters, the power of their signals, the postcode area, and local terrain.

PR: I've also got a manhattan T2 box, and while its OK for the money (and will get you Freeview HD), its only a receiver and does tend to lock up every so often.

Since its likely your VCR doesn't work either (being analogue), you can kill two birds with one staone, and get a PVR, which has two tuners, so you can record and watch at the same time.

Humax is what I recommend, and the T2000 has just won a WhatHifi award -…9133 . You can buy cheaper ones, but they work well, and are good value.

Hilary Woodward: You can check for yourself if there was a problem with the transmitter on its webpage, but I suspect there isn't. The only time transmitters have reduced power is when there is maintenance - other than that, its constant.

You shouldn't be suffering from weak signal - your just 23km from the transmitter, and I'm not sure what they are not telling you the 'truth' about.

In reality, 90% of the time on this website when people are complaining about the transmitter, its really a problem with their system. Your aerial system almost certainly has a problem somewhere, but is likely just about hanging on, and hence not noticeable. Add something like heavy rain, which gets into a cracked connection, etc, and it kills the signal completely. When the sun comes out and the connection dries out, it works again. But in the long term, it will fail.

As for problems watching a problem online, if your using a tuner card attached to the aerial, it will be the same problem, and if its buffering, then thats just a poor broadband speed, which has nothing to do with the transmitter.

mr roberts: Do you receive a local TV station on channel 7 or 8? If so just retune and True Christmas should appear on channel 74. If you can't receive a local TV station then you won't get True Christmas either as it is broadcast on local TV capacity and is therefore only available where a local TV station is available.

My Post Code - IP13 8JG

I am having intermittent problems with at least two channels - 42 and 45, mainly 5 USA and Dave plus a few others. Most of the time I get good reception, but sometimes over a few days I loose a few channels. The signal strength for these lost channels (channel 42 and 45 mostly) is good and remains at a constant 91, but the quality goes up and down, often down to 0. This problem does not seem to be triggered by any changes in the house or equipment setup, I have an outside aerial on the roof and get the main channels with very high quality and signal strength. I have done the various suggested resets etc. and have even used another freeview receiver to see if it is equipment failure, but got the same results. Why should the signal strength be very good, but the quality over short periods drop often to 0?

TV has just lost signal. Screen message states:
The receiver is not receiving a signal or the signal is too weak.
Has been working perfectly prior to this.
