GEORGE FAIRHURST: There are no transmission problems, please can you see Single frequency interference | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice and Freeview reception has changed? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice for help.
The Licence Fee pays for the BBC to make and broadcast their content, it does not pay for them to fix your reception problems, that is your responsibility.

GEORGE FAIRHURST: You are around 400 yards from the Largs transmitter which is on or near to Largs Academy on Flatt Road.
A look on Google Streetview shows aerials in your street pointing at the Rothesay transmitter. If yours is as well, then I suggest that the problem is likely to be that your TV has tuned to Largs instead.
If your aerial points at Rothesay, then start the auto-setup scan with the aerial lead unplugged. When the scan gets to 25%, plug it in again. Alternatively, you might be able to manually tune.
