I'm not receiving Com7 signal in HP17 8PL despite other channels showing 100% signal quality from the Oxford transmitter. Any suggestions please?

Michael Porter: Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? There are no reported faults on any of the transmitters shown in the coverage prediction for your postcode.

StevensOnln1: Hi other group of channels that can also drop signal quality is the itv group checked cables everything ok lost quality about 6 last night but back to full quality at 9 last night maybe going to have to get ariel checked but would have thought if out of position quality would be low all of the time thanks dawn

Since retuning on Aug 2nd I have lost ITV3 and Drama from my set top box, ( Channels 10 and 20) but it is working fine from the ( much newer) TV freeview tuner direct. However I would ike to record from these channels and have tried turning of, tuning without aerial as suggested many times now without result. Can you suggest anything?

I have an old Topfield PVR feeding my Wharfedale HD-ready 19 inch flat screen tv. It all worked fine until the 2nd August retune. My problem since has been that the epg does not update when a tv programme or show ends: my epg display listing starts at the top with the programme that has just ended rather than the new programme or show that has just started. This happens regardless of the epg view I choose. I've tried turning the pvr off at the plug socket and carrying out a second retune and I've deleted all the old pre-aug 2nd. channel numbers for children's channels, news channels, streamed channels, etc., but the problem remains. Could it be that the Topfield PVR has become corrupted since I retuned on 2nd. august? I have signal strength of 87% and quality 97% and the pictures and sound are fine on all channels. I've also tried changing the clock time, also to no avail. I'm at NR2 2EF, house no. 55; 10 miles NE of Tacolneston, but don't think there's anything wrong with the signal, but rather, the Topfield PVR, which is 11 or 12 years old.

freeview CHANNEL 8 9 Lodon Live ), I get continual loss of signal on this channel, it has never been perfect although when the signal is there the picture and sound are perfect. What is wrong ? No other freeview channel is affected in this way.
