Bryan Clegg: According to Digital UK, some channels changed frequency at the end of last month (this website has no connection with the transmitter company or any broadcaster) although that was 27th February (there was not 29th Feb this year). Depending on your exact location (please provide a full postcode) your TV may have picked up a weak signal from another transmitter when retuning. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Do not attempt to retune when you have a weak signal as this will just make the problem worse.

I am living on the Wirral with my aerial pointing to winter hill. I get com 7 channel 55 going on/off. I've noticed that moly parc Wales has com 7 on channel 55, both horizontal. I have a high gain directional aerial that I had recently installed. I think that one transmitter, mop y parc, is interferering with the winter hill signal as I'm much closer to mol y parc.
