We have loft aerial on Sony 28" TV with Humax PVR 9150T also 16" Sony Tv and powered indoor aerial with Argos STB101X1. We can see the Bampton transmitter clearly from our home distance 1.2 miles. Over the last 10 days or so we along with several local people and neighbours have been experiencing intermittent pixelisation and occasional quite load popping on both BBC1 & BBC2 with no problem on the independent channels. We have had no problems receiving the programmes until quite recently. There do not appear to be any reported transmitter faults. please investigate this matter. Thank you. T.Dapp

Am in Williton and can only get BBC and ITV Wales. Anyone know why? Very frustrating. Want to know what's happening in the South West.

Chris Gilbert: If you supply your postcode a check can be made of which transmitters can be received in your area. It would appear that you are receiving signals from Wenvoe, which you will need to do for reception of a full Freeview service. However you might be able to receive additionally signals from a local relay supplying BBC West news. Taking a couple of Williton postcodes as a reference, Washford would appear to be the most likely relay transmitter which would offer a BBC West service on C59.
