A g BELL: Hi, AG. Your transmitter at Bilsdale West Moor has been having engineering work done upon it during the past week and so this probably explains your weak signals, Richard, Norwich. Incidentally, BBC One HD does not carry 'Look Anything'. At the times when regional news programmes are broadcast on BBC One SD, BBC One HD displays a caption advising you to re-tune to BBC One SD for your local programme. Hope this helps, Richard, Norwich.

Melanie Collins : Hi, Melanie. The Bilsdale West Moor television transmitter does not have any reported problems and so it would seem that you must have a problem with your tv reception installation. Check with your neighbours to ascertain whether they are having any 'Freeview' signal problems before checking your own equipment. Richard, Norwich.

I have a high gain rooftop aerial and generally have no problems with free view. I now find that I have lost ITV3. Retune has not helped.
Can you help?

I am trying to set up a tv from my caravan at Carlton Miniett near Thirsk and on tuning, due to being a multi direction aerial, it picks up broadcasts from North East and Yorkshire. North east is Newcastle and Middlesbrough and Yorkshire is Leeds and York. Having tried to find the best signal seem to have tried them all and still breaking up despite booster. Could you tell me which would be the strongest signal to tune in to from these 4 options ???
