Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Torosay transmitter area
We lost all signal through our freeview box last week. I have disconnected and econnected everything and done a fresh search for channels but there is no signal. Is there a problem with the transmitter? We have an arial on the roof but it has always worked fine until now. PH364JU

Paul: Judging by the fact that Digital UK predicts no reception at your location I assume that you aren't in a good signal area and therefore may have a mast-head amplifier.
Perhaps it has failed. A light being on on the device itself or on its power supply doesn't mean that it is functioning normally.
