6:47 PM Sheffield
S12 2LW. My signal comes from the Sheffield (Crosspool / Tapton) relay transmitter. I have a chimney-mounted aerial with an amplifier in the loft. Problems started with poor Freeview reception on Monday 21/11/16. Seems to have improved a bit as the week's gone on however I still have issues of signal strength & quality. TV works in one room only (aerial points in two rooms). I have two Freeview recorders, both of which show "No Signal" although I can get a (fairly poor) signal on the TV via through loop aerial cable via the recorder - yet the recorder says "no signal". Also when I switch the recorder on the TV signal completely disappears too.

I get generally good TV reception from the Sheffield local transmitter so my issue is not with the quality of the broadcast but with some of the content.
I'm not sure if this is something within your control but if not, please pass on my comment to those concerned.
The problem is with the Look North and Calendar content. I have noticed recently that the morning summaries of local News included in the Breakfast program seem to have changed sometime during 2016. Previously summaries were relevant mainly to West and South Yorkshire and included a fair share of news for the Sheffield area. This was consistent with the content of the evening Look North broadcasts. Now however, while the evening Look North content remains concerned with West and South Yorkshire, the morning summaries have changed to content mainly concerned with Hull and Lincolnshire. I also notice that the evening Calendar news is similarly oriented to Humberside and Lincolnshire and therefore rarely relevant for viewers in Sheffield.
Why is this?
