Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Oxford transmitter area
Not having much like with ITV freeview of late, recordings are finishing ahead of schedule, the signal either mildly interrupted or massively (audio skips ahead of image, recording skipping right to end in seconds). Channel 4 sometimes the same. Not sure if the transmitter (nothing seems wrong from the googling I've done) or the weather. Been going on a few days (though after my last retune in September, I lost a bunch of channels and so didn't retune back in March).
reached a point where recordings are not worth the effort.
Live in Aylesbury, so would be Oxford transmitter.

Please provide a full post code so that we can see the predicted reception for you location.
Also check all the aerial cables, unplugging nad refitting any connections. Could you also check with your neighbours who use Freeview to see if they have the same problems.

Hello, it's HP19 7QW
looks like the signal was as bad coming from the freeview on mty tv as well as freeview. I then did a channel retune and first time installation. I've now lost all my channels but the BBC ones. So now more than up the creek as before.

You should be getting good reception on all 8 multiplexes from Oxford as you areo nly 24km away.
I suggest you unplug your aerial from the TV and perform a full retune. Then refit the aerial plug and do another full retune. That should restore all your channels. If not, then perform a manual tune using the channels shown as current at Coverage Checker - Detailed View which is correct for yopu location.
Note that you should have a wideband aerial as the original Group C/D aerial does not cover all the available channels. If you do not have cable or satellite you may get a wideband aerial installed free if you contact www.freeview.co.uk/tvchanges and look in the FAQ section. Or ring 0808 100 0288.
Note also that there is another retune event scheduled for 23rd May 2018 and you will definitely need a wideband aerial to get all the available channels then. The listing at Coverage Checker - Detailed View shows what the new channels will be after than retune.
