Service has resumed within the last hour but the picture is still breaking up. I have now spoken to a local neighbour who is having the same problem . Devon County Show is on at Westpoint about 1 mile from here and therefore wonder whether their equipment is causing problems to reception?

G.Bradbury: the William Hepburn's tropospheric ducting forecast for this morning, 20th May 2016, showed predictions that suggested reception could possibly have been affected by out of area signals travelling further than normal over the SW region and West Wales. Conditions were expected to have returned to normal by mid afternoon.

Stockland Hill is not a full freeview Tx as described. Two examples are missing Talking Pictures and CBS Drama.As far as I can find, it is because 2 of the missing channels are Talking Pictures & CBS Drama. As far as I can see this is because it does not transmit neither com 7 nor com 8. Can you please when this discrepancy will be corrected.

john coombes: It would appear that no info has been published as yet with regards the multiplex transmitter channel number EPG87 will be carried on, however, if its on either COM 4/ 5 /6 it will be viewable in your area, but not if on COM7, as Stockland Hill is not one of the stations fitted with additional COM7 & COM8 HD multiplexes.

This info will be updated as necessary.
