Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Crystal Palace transmitter area
My TV picture is pixelating and there is a banner at the bottom that says low signal strength. I completed the reset procedure with no effect. I've disconnected the BTVision equipment and am running only Freeview. I'm not sure where the aerial is since I rent this house and the cable comes from the wall directly into the TV. It is either in the attic or on the roof. The map shows a fault with the Sutton transmitter but when I double click on it the deals say nothing is wrong. I'm inclined to believe the map since my TV is demonstrating that there is a problem. What do I do next? Do I report the problem or simple wait? If the latter, how long does it take for these things to get corrected? Thanks for your help.

Patricia Wild: I'm quite sure that your reception is from Crystal Palace, which is also listed as having no problems. A visual inspection of the aerial if it is outside would be useful to make sure that it is still mounted correctly and pointing in the correct direction ie same as your neighbours' aerials. Otherwise check cables and connectors are in order. Also check the strength and quality of the signal being received on the different multiplexes, say BBC1, ITV, QVC, Sky News and Film4 to give an idea on whether there is a weak signal problem, as suggested by your receiver, or a quality problem, possibly due to impulse interference. Less likely is the possibility of signal overload resulting from over amplification if there are any boosters in use..
