Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Ridge Hill transmitter area
MikeB: To reiterate my former comments: the picture is perfect when viewing the signal through the digibox. If the digibox is switched off so that the aerial signal is being decoded in the TV then the picture is either completely broken up or "no signal " or "poor signal" is displayed. Both the digibox and the TV are receiving their signal from the same aerial feed.

Please check the signal strengths being shown when you are viewing directly on the TV. I assume that you are merely switching the Digibox to standby and not turning of the mains supply to it?
You need to have signal strengths of between 50% and 85% for SD services and between 60% and 85% for HD services, anything more or less will cause loss of picture/sound and break up.

I have no means to check the signal strength but I don't doubt your comments about the signal strength being low, particularly as that is what the TV screen displays. What puzzles me is why, if nothing has changed at the transmitter, this poor signal has been present for the past four days when it had worked perfectly for years before then. Since we still seem to be getting a signal which is adequate to work through the separate digibox we can at least still view tv programmes, but I'm curious to know exactly what has happened.
