The bright green areas shown where the signal from this transmitter is strong, dark green areas are poorer signals. Those parts shown in yellow may have interference on the same frequency from other masts.

Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Hannington (Hampshire, England) mast?

Alan Herman: re latter query, its very unlikely that 4G transmissions (should this mode apply anyway!) are connected in any way with your problem as COM6 (C47) would also be affected.

You should try deleting everything stored in the tuners memory system by carrying out a retune on your TV / box "after" having first of all removed the aerial connection from same, reconnecting the aerial on completion followed by carrying a second retune to load the programme channels back into the memory.

Should this action fail to resolve the situation, if your TV / box offers a "manual" tuning facility, enter C44 (658.0Mhz) into the selection box but do "not" select search or scan, as in most devices if any signal is being received the strength / quality of same will be seen on the indicator bars.

Apart from the aforementioned, if you have any HDMI cables connected into the TV/ box, make sure that the aerial lead going into the set is kept well clear of same, as radiation from HDMI cables can cause problems with reception, the interference being of a frequency selective nature, i.e: knocking out one mux channel whilst having no effect on another.

Further assistance as required.

mark withers: something in your aerial system was dying, and has now gone belly up. Might be as simple as a fallen out aerial lead, but it sounds like something more series - broken cable perhaps.

I've lost COM7 in RG1 from Hannington. Can't get BBC4HD, BBC News HD , CBS Drama or Talking Pictures. I've done a factory reset on my PVR and rescanned. All other channels seems to be okay.

Warren Swaine: Check your signal levels. If your losing muxes, its usually due to a problem with your aerial system - a frayed cable, etc. Since we tend to not notice a problem until something vanishes, its possible that the other muxes are just hanging on, but since these muxes are less powerful, they go first.
