K Carless : There are no faults reported with The Wrekin transmiter and since no one else is reporting any problem I doubt your TV has been individually targeted by any hackers. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Please provide a full postcode so that we can see your predicted signal strength and where you are in relation to the transmitter etc.

David, Merv and Andy:
Please provide a full post code, a partial is of not use. Only then can we contributoirs see what the expected reception conditions are like at your location.
Retuning was a complete waste of time as you've now lost many of the chennels you originally had.
Please check all the aerial connections, including any plugs and sockets by unplugging and refitting.
Than check what channels you have. Manually tune any missing ones to the correct channels for the transmitter in use. Find the channels by putting your post code into the Digital UK Coverage Checker and scrolling down the appropriate listing.
