I have several TV sets and, of course, they all show the No Signal message. On one set, a message gives a helpline no. 0800 952 0101 which turns out to be Asda's no.!!!
However, my iPhone also has a No Signal status, is this normal given the Peebles transmitter situation?

Bob Abbot: There's been no advanced warning of planned engineering work on the Peebles transmitter so it's reasonable to assume that there is currently a fault (services off air since 9:22 this morning according to the engineering post above yours). If your phone signal normally comes from a mobile base station on the same transmitter mast (most TV and radio transmitter masts also host base stations for the mobile networks) then it could be that either the mobile services have been switched off to allow engineers to safely work on the mast, or possibly that there has been a loss of mains power at the transmitter and any backup battery supply has been exhausted.
