Warm weather, no picture/signal, as usual. Never had this with analogue, so sick of this. Paying for licence, no picture in certain weather conditions. Constant retuning does nothing.

Lucy Harris.If as you state you are fed up of Freeview TV,go for Freesat.
Either that or if you are affluent (wealthy) enough and there is Virgin Media in your area,opt for Cable TV instead.
Cable TV does have its advantanges,less or no interference whatsoever,and its all digital too.

Based on the three reports, the Bath transmitter would appear to be off the air.

Philip Dent and Hannah, you've shot yourselves in the foot by retuning as you have wiped the memory of your receivers. You now have too issues: 1. The transmitter is giving no signal 2. Your receiver isn't tuned to its frequencies.

Therefore you will have to repeatedly retune, but only once the transmitter is back on will you get anything. This is because you can't tune to something that isn't there and you won't know it's there until you've tuned.


Those who resisted the temptation to retune will simply be able to keep switching on their sets and seeing if the channels have returned.
