We've had no problems at all with Freeview until a few weeks ago, and reception until then had always been excellent. Neighbours who use Freeview also started having issues at the same time. We experience severe sound distortion, pixilation, and picture break up on all BBC TV and radio channels ( excluding BBC HD which is fine). All other channels are working as normal. Please advise.

No signals on any TV channel. I have checked with a neighbour and they have no TV signals also from our Moel Y Sant transmitter. Please note, the tv signals appear to have been weak for several weeks.
