Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Midhurst transmitter area
Paul Pennicott :
There's no reported faults at Midhurst that I can find, from Freeview or the BBC in the last 5 days, except 24 Jan 10:11 until 24 Jan 10:22 which should only have affected DAB reception.
As you haven't provided a full postcode, I can't tell if you might receive other transmitters and have become tuned to a weaker signal if there was any interruption to the Midhurst signal. If your set has any auto-retune turned on (turn it off if it has - generally more trouble than it's worth) or you retuned at any point when you had no signal or pictures were badly pixellated it generally just clears correct tuning or may have got tuned to weaker signal from another transmitter.
Check in your TV's tuning section that you are tuned to all the correct UHF channels for Midhurst, as listed at the top of this page these are - C48, C35, C36, C29, C34, C33 in the order PSBs1-3, COMs4-6.
