We appear to be getting a poor signal for ITV1 and Channel 4. This has happened intermittently over the last few months, but is getting worse.

Hi, I have an inbult digital TV (Post code BN3 2HA). I have been unable to get any BBC channels for some time, I dont get a no signal / signal could not be found error.

My TV just starts at ITV (channel 3) it never finds BBC1 or BBC 2. Am worried that when the analogue goes I wont be able to get these channels.

Any advice appreciated.

Thanks
