liz krauesslar: Put your postcode into the site, and it will bring up what sort of signal you should get, but almost certainly your system is at fault, and thats why you've lost various channels.
Check your cables, starting from behind the TV. It could be no more than a loose cable connection or a damaged cable. If you can't find any problems and nothing has got better, then you might need to call out a professional.

You should be using the Hannington main transmitter (but you have posted in the page for Lambourn).
The Hannington transmitter should be giving an excellent signal at your location whereas the Lambourn transmitter is hardly receivable in Great Shefford, Hungerford.
So please check that your TV is correctly tuned to the Hannington signals, look at Which Freeview channels does the Hannington transmitter broadcast? to find the right channel numbers to use.
Please also check that your aerial is aimed correctly at Hannington and that there are no problems with your aerial cables through to the TV set.
