My only problem with freesat which I tried to have installed, is a great big tree in the neighbours garden which the aerial fitter says is in the direct line with the satalite. Seems I can't win.

Long periods of several minutes of signals from most terrestrial/Freeview channels. BBC, ITV, Channels 4 & 5, Estuary. Some not affected Channel 11, 12, 17, 19, 25. But your information says no problems or engineering. Question, given the signals are digital could they have been affected by atmospherics?

Arthur Tonkinson: The signals being digital make no difference, it is down to the frequencies used and the weather conditions. Lift conditions allows signals from distant transmitters to be received when they would not usually cause interference is certainly possible at the moment.

Thank you.

Angela Thompson : Please provide a full postcode so that we can see your predicted coverage. The affects of atmospheric pressure are exactly the same as they were 50 years ago and will remain the same 50 years from now. If your signal is always bad you probably have a fault somewhere in your aerial system.

John morritt: Although you're 87km away, your postcode is predicted to have good reception from Belmont. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables and connections behind your TV and at the aerial (if you can safely access it)? Retuning will never fix a signal problem if the TV was already correctly tuned.

In Watlington West Norfolk PE33 postcode, for the past week and still currently a problem are the BBC channels, BBC1, BBC2, BBC4, BBC News (231) which are at best showing breaking up of image and usually freezing completely for up to 30 seconds or worst case showing service unavailable on TV.

Understand this could be weather related but strange that only seems to affect BBC channels?

Any thoughts?

In Bridlington can you get a signal from Scarborough or Bilsdale? Sometimes secondary or even tertiary transmitters can be a better option.

We are in Hull and are linked to the Belmont transmitter. Everything was fine until about 6 weeks ago when at certain times of the day and night, our tv picture becomes pixelated or freezes on certain channels and on all T S in our house - all of which are at various ages of newness.
We have had numerous conversations with the bbc reception team and completed their webpage fault questionnaire and have undertaken all the advice given to no avail.
Have auto and manually retuned, reset factory settings etc. our neighbours do not have problems.
BBC are telling us that the problem appears to be "time specific impulse interference"
Am getting fed up of losing Programmes - it doesn't happen every day but when it does it's always the same times. There doesn't appear to be any transmitter problems reported.
Please help !!!
