Ron Kennedy: There are no faults showing for the transmitter. Start by checking for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV.

Ron Kennedy: If you contact at800 | 4G & Freeview | 4G interference | 4G Filters | 800 MHz they will check if there are any 4G masts operating in the 800MHz which are likely to affect your Freeview and send out a free filter to block block the unwanted signals.
