Church Stretton

We live close to Church Stretton, SY6 7JA. Our Freeview has been completely down all evening, (no channels available). We seem to be affected by the Oakley Mynd transmitter and have had variable Freeview reception since the weekend. Freesat is working fine, which is our back up.

mike: we had good reception from hazler here in church stretton until early yesterday evening (31st oct). Then no reception later in the evening and no reception today (1st nov). Can't understand why they say there are no problems with the transmitter.

mike & D. Askew: This is very likely caused by the high atmospheric pressure affecting various parts of the country, causing lift conditions which allow signals from distant transmitters which cannot normally be received to interfere with the signals from the transmitter you normally use. Do not attempt to retune as this will delete all of your channels which are already correctly tuned. As this is an entirely natural phenomenon, all you can do is wait for the atmospheric conditions to return to normal.

For the past three days since Sunday 3rd December our digital TV has only displayed either a broken picture alternating with the message no signal or poor signal. However, when routing the feed through an old separate digital box the signal reaching the TV works perfectly well. Presumably the digital box is more able to deal with poor signals. But as there are no reported faults on the Hazler transmitter, why are we suddenly receiving a poor signal?!
