Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Dover transmitter area
You say its not got worse! But for the last 2-3 weeks its been terrible have only been able to get a few channels and never the ones I watch like Spike, Quest, E4. Never used to lose signal as much as now
Kept getting a message up to say a retune was needed before a certain date, but only been able to get a few channels when Im home, so dont want to do a retune and lose what channels I can get!
How can I solve it or is it a case of waiting for the conditions to change? Or getting sky?

Ive done a retune this morning, but missing lots of channels.
23 Create and Craft
32 Sony Movie Channel
38 Quest Red
40 Sony Crime Channel
41 Food Network UK
43 Gems TV
45 Film4 +1
And loads more after that!
Surely it should find them even if it cant get a signal to receive them?

Please put your post code into the Digital UK Coverage Checker website at http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker/main/index/dummy/NA/yes. That will tell you what channels are now being used. Also check whether you need to change your aerial as many of the changes move COM7 and COM8 up to channels 55 and 56, which a Group A or Group B aerial will not receive properly. The ideal aerial nowadays is a wideband type.

I really have no idea now!
The freeview pvr has found all the channels tonight when Ive retuned, but cant view itv, channel 4, Channel 5, itv2 as no signal (dont know about any others) But I can get itv, channel 4 and channel 5 on the HD channels (I was given the option of the kent or london receiver) so I chose Kent
It was getting these channels before the swap over recently
Ive also retuned the tv to kent, and that can get itv, channel 4 (though it keeps breaking up) channel 5 and itv2 (keeps breaking up) dont know if it cant get any on the tv?
Other TVs in the house seem to be able to get most channels?
My pvr is new only got a few days ago
