Ab24 2be I still have tv's & boxes not re-tuned still rubbish all channels.As know one else seems to be having problems & can't find any hardware faults there was a new 4g mast built earlier in the year pretty close to me.There were engineers at it mid week,maybe it wan't on till now/not working?I do have a 4g filter 'ANTSIG' 'AP140GB' as lots of 4g here.Tried 'at800' to see if i could find any info but there stock line is very unlikely to be 4g!

The problem must be with your equipment, especially if no one else is having the problem. You should be getting good reception from the Durris transmitter, so check what channels your equipment is tuned to, the channels used are listed at Coverage Checker - Detailed View While doing that you should also check what the reported signal strengths are for each channel, that needs to be between 60% and 85% for HD channels and between 50% and 85% for SD channels. Anything more will cause the break up you report, likewise anything less will cause the same problem.

I've lost everything on Channel 32 at AB53 6TW, it's always been the weaker channel but now suddenly have no signal at all showing on any of my TV Sets or Freeview Boxes, I also have another completely separate setup in my Summerhouse, aerial and tv and Channel 32 also shows no signal on that setup. Has something changed with recently?
