The television screen says "no signal", and the aerial is on the roof.

Debbie Aliaga: Is this a change, or have you only just tried using Freeview?

The Bury St Edmunds transmitter does not yet transmit digital signals. It will start doing so in November. However, Digital UK shows that it won't be your best option - in fact it will be very poor.

Your best option after switchover is the main transmitter at Tacolneston, and is also your best option now.

If you're already using Tacolneston, I'd look for a break in the cable, a damaged aerial, or a major mis-alignment.

Peter: The answer depends on which transmitter you are using.

If you and your friend have your aerials directed to the Bury St Edmunds transmitter, then it doesn't carry these channels. It only carries the Public Service channels which are BBC, ITV1, ITV1+1, ITV2, Channel 4, Channel 4+1, E4, More 4, Channel 5 and the four HD services.

If you provide your location, preferably in the form of post code or nearby post code (e.g. a shop), then likelihood of reception can be checked upon.
