Mrs Anderson-Archbold: Please provide a full postcode so we can see where you are in relation to the transmitter and your predicted signal strength etc. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Are you and your neighbours in the same building with a communal aerial or you in separate properties that each has their own aerial?
