Geoff Hall: The transmitter has been off air.

Why why why are you retuning?? All you will do is cause more problems because your TV won't be tuned so you won't know when the transmitter is back.

JOE: No. COM7 and COM8 are likely to have a short lifespan though; expect things to be replanned around 2018.

hi itv channel 4 channel 5 and a few other channels have disappeared. bbc 1 and 2 have interference. I have tried all the things you listed above with no difference we had a digital aerial fitted 8 years ago with a booster that sits on a three meter pole on top of the house . I have spoken to next door neighbour and they are having the same problems
