Such problems are NEVER with the transmitter else many hundred of thousands of viewers would also be affected but none are reporting any such problems, So it a problem with your system. You are 50km away from the Sandy Heath transmitter so you need to ensure that your aerial system is in good condition and operating correctly as well as checking that you are tuned to the correct transmitter. So check all your aerial cables and all coaxial plugs/sockets by unplugging, examining and refitting. That should clear any possible corrosion/oxidation on the contacts which is a well known problem. Also check that you are tuned to the correct trasnmitter for your aerial, look at the alignment of it and check that against the bearings given on the Digital UK Coverage Checker at http://www.digitaluk.co.u…ker.

Eamon:

Look at the Digital UK Coverage Checker for your location, see Coverage Checker - Detailed View That shows there are some inherent reception variabilities with the Horizontal signals from Rowridge. The vertical ones are not affected but that does not carry COM7 nor COM8.

It's worth checking all your aerial connections and cables, unplugging and refitting any coaxial plugs and sockets to clear any possible corrosion/oxidation. Also check that you are tuned to the correct channel numbers and have a wideband aerial in use.

Well, my Overlap Blocking Filter (a PROception proOBF1E) turned up yesterday but it seems to be defective! It is marked as having a Channel 39 to 60 passband but in reality channels below 30 come through strongly and channels 40 to 43 are entirely blocked (and these should be my PSB1 and 2 and COM4 channels!).

However, the problem on c56 is fixed so I think I'm on the right track. I plan to speak to the manufacturer tomorrow... Why is life so difficult?

Since yesterday, my main tv keeps squaring and then showing as no signal and I lose all the channels
I have retuned it twice.
Your post code checker shows that the aerial should point to London, which it does but, this TV shows Cambridge when I tune it. There are other TVs in the house which correctly show London
Can you help at all? Thanks

All the HD channels seem to have disappeared from the Eyemouth transmitter. SD channels are OK.

Then you need to manually tune to the preferred transmitter. Your User Manual will tell you how rto do that and use the Digital UK Coverage Checker to look up which channels to tune to, see Digital UK - Coverage checker

as the SD channels are all still working then so are the HD services. Check your aerial system and that you are tuned to the correct transmitter.

Problems started on Saturday with signal drop out and no video on the HD channels 101 to 105. I tried the auto digital tune on my Sony TV and these channels disappeared completely. Same situation this morning so I did another auto digital tune and channels 101 to 105 are back. I can only assume the HD Mux was down or faulty for several hours as the SD channels were always fine.
