This transmitter has no current reported problems

The BBC and Digital UK report there are no faults or engineering work on the Marlborough (Wiltshire, England) transmitter.

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).

I have two sets in different rooms. Neither of them is transmitting any programmes at all.

M. Dugal:

TV sets do not 'transmit' programmes but receive the signal via your aerial for display on the screen. I assume you are saying that you do not get any channels shown?

To be able to assist we need a postcode of where you live (or that of a very nearby shop or post office, etc) so we can judge which transmitter you might be using.

As both of your sets appear to have the same problem, it is more likely to be a fault developed in your signal systems. Do they both connect to the same aerial? Do you have a powered splitter feeding both affected sets? Is there power still fed to that splitter?

DAB signals do not pixilate! Are you really meaning your TV signals are having problems?

If so, from The Wrekin pages today

"This is very likely caused by the high atmospheric pressure affecting various parts of the country, causing lift conditions which allow signals from distant transmitters which cannot normally be received to interfere with the signals from the transmitter you normally use. Do not attempt to retune as this will delete all of your channels which are already correctly tuned. As this is an entirely natural phenomenon, all you can do is wait for the atmospheric conditions to return to normal."
