Steven grundy: Continually retuning will never fix a problem with weak signal. The Poole transmitter shows a very weak signal at your location and is unlikely to give you any watchable channels. The only transmitters which are predicted to give a good signal at your location are Rowridge VP or Westbourne (lite relay which only carries around 20 channels). Start by checking for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV, but if that doesn't solve the problem you probably need to get someone to check the aerial and booster.
