Mr Blenkinsop: There are no faults showing for either the Pontop Pike or Newton transmitters, so the most likely explanation is that your aerial system has been damaged by the recent bad weather. Although, it would be worth checking for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV just in case.

The only signal in range of our home is from the Newton transmitter, this normally only gives us freeview light.
In the last few days the TV guide on our TV is currently showing the full listing for freeview channels, however none of the additional channels are working.
Does anyone know whats going on?

Gary: The current atmospheric conditions are probably allowing your to pick up a weak signal (enough to get the channel data but not enough to get a picture) from a main transmitter which would not normally be receivable.
