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 Vision 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 4G-at-800 interference) as well as tabulated information (sorted by direction, by received signal strength, by frequency, by service names or by transmitter name).

The HD multiplex was not 'down' at all as no one else has reported any loss of those programmes. Please check the signa;l strengths of the affected multiplexes for the transmitter, you need at least 60% strength and ideally not more that 85%.

It is worth noting that the multiples carrying those HD services also carries some of the SD services.

Yes it was all signals on PSB3, low power might have been the issue. Fine now.

As the transmitter was not on low poaer, you must check your aerial sysytem and connections. Poor contact will cause problems with just one frequency.

The replacement Overlap Blocking Filter arrived yesterday and I installed it today. This one seems to work correctly, with substantial attenuation of channels 20 to 30, which is what I wanted. Channel 56 is now 80% signal strength, 80-100% signal quality which is also what I had hoped for, and all the usual channels are also good. So the diagnosis of blocking of weak signals due to input overloading from my local Freeview Lite transmitter seems to be correct. Maybe some of the problems others have with poor reception could be due to the same problem and benefit from the same solution.

Hope this is useful feedback.

Loss of TV Freeview signal over several nights since 21/10/2018 mostly BBC ITV CHANNEL4 CHANNEL 5 But also others.
This is very annoying we have tried retuning when this happens but with no effect.
We have had similar problems on and off since the digital service took over from terrestrial TV and so had new aerial's fitted which was a waste of money.
Sat dishes are the best way to go and work out cheaper than TV aerials.....Run it on the Freesat network same amount of channels as Freeview but less hassle.

Thanks for the feedback. Glad the system is now working as you wanted all along. It also helps to confirm that my suggestions about signal strength requiremnets are correct and in accord with manufacturers technical guidance.

At your location you should be getting good reception from either Sandy Heath (at 62km distance) or Tacolnston (at 58km distance). Both now require the use of a wideband aerial mopunted for horizontal polarisation. See Coverage Checker - Detailed View

Satellite would be another option but do not use a smaller type dish as that will give just as many reception problems (I use a 65cm dish in Wiltshire and never have an problems due to rain or snow absorption of the signals). Also make sure that a good quality Low Noise Block is fitted, preferably with at least 4 outputs for future flexibility. Most of the Freeview channels are available on Freesat, but not all.

I have lost all bbc channels from free view. Aerial points at Heathfield mast although I have never managed to make sense of the transmitted channels and those the TV says it's receiving . Anyway no HD or BBC anymore it seems . Last night the HD went and today the rest but there nothing online to suggest there is any mast work. Anyone any ideas?

Please provide a full post code so that we can look at the predicted reception at your location. Heathfield transmitter covers a large area and thousands of homes.

I am having pixelisation issues on talking pictures TV since the recent refund in October . I am using a digital aerial an set top box. I have retuned the box a couple of times and checked the transmitter service but nothing seems to change the situation . Do you have any solutions that I could try as I have also checked all the connections are secured thanks
