Lorraine Hillier:

I can't find any reports of problems with the Henley relay transmitter (but things may be slower in the current situation).

There is some "Tropospheric Ducting" around at present, see Effect of tropospheric ducting on Freeview | Help receiving TV and radio which may affect some parts of the country from time to time, this could be causing interference from more distant transmitters and might be the cause of your intermittent loss of signal if you aren't in a particularly good reception location. We'd need a full postcode to see what the Freeview Detailed Coverage Checker is giving for your predicted reception.

It's NOT a good idea to retune in such circumstances as most of the time it just loses the correctly tuned channels or ends up picking up another transmitter (the wrong region or foreign) and you have to repeat the retune when conditions change.

Other than that you could check for any loose connections at you aerial socket, coax plugs, fly leads etc. Always worth checking that your aerial appears intact and is pointing in the right direction.
