Rhian Williams:

I presume you mean 'poor reception'. To be able to offer any advice we need a full post code so that we can examine the reception conditions at your location.

Postcode LL777UR, last couple of days CCTV on channel 260 (a data channel) is only giving a test card with the number 15048 and the time. Is the CCTV channel no longer being broadcast from Llandona or is there a problem with the transmission?
