silvano webb: It means that your TV isn't receiving a signal, probably because something was damaged by the storm. Is your aerial still pointing the same way as your neighbours aerials? It may have been blown out of alignment by the high winds or the cable may have been damaged or be letting water in causing a short circuit.
