UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

The picture on my LG 14" tv is pixelating and jumping and the sound is breaking up. I plugged in a Sharp 32" tv belonging to a friend which worked perfectly at their address but this has the same pixelating problem. However, i plugged in a smaller tv 12" screen and the picture on this is perfect and I have no pixelating or sound problem. Would you be able to advise what the likely problem could be please. many thanks.

Sorry for the delay in reply, there was a problem with the website. If your friends 32" suffered the same problem then it's likely you might have an issue with your aerial installation BUT as you've posted on a radio transmitter page rather than the TV one which you're receiving it's not possible to be definitive.
You may not know which transmitter you receive - that's why people are asked to provide a full postcode so we can check the predicted reception and likely transmitter.

You haven't said how long this problem has been occurring or which channels are affected.

Generally in he Stafford area, assuming that's why you've posted here, you could most likely receive the Sutton Coldfield transmitter if your aerial is pointing SE, or the Wrekin transmitter if your aerial is pointing roughly WSW, but there could still be local variations due to the terrain.

If the problem is just the last few days it could be transmitter maintenance occurring at Sutton Coldfield if that's the one you get, but you may still have a marginal signal in normal conditions if there's a problem with your installation.
The smaller TV that worked may have a more sensitive tuner which works with a weaker signal.
It might be wise to check your LG at your friends to check it works ok.

How old (roughly) is the aerial installation? Do you have any preamp/splitter for more than one set?
If you provide a full postcode, we can look at the predicted reception and should be able to advise further.
