we are experiencing constant interruption on the c24 frequency - ITV channel 4 & 5 etc. It used to be ok with occasional interference but now it is all the time making the channels unwatchable. Is this a common problem and what advice can you offer please. Many thanks Ruth Chapman and Alan Keetley

Darren Glynn : All transmitters broadcast high definition services on their PSB3 multiplexes. Services available are the HD variants of BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three, CBBC, ITV and Channel 4.

Darren Glynn : If the reason for asking this question is because you are unable to view programmes in HD?, then this is most likely down to your TV or box only being fitted with a DVB-T tuner, and "not" one of the DVB-T2 variety required for HD reception.

If you TV or box has a manual tuning option try scanning C21 which is Nottinghams PSB3 HD multiplex, if no signal is received then the tuner fitted in your receiver is a DVB-T type.
