Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Stockland Hill transmitter area
We live in EX16 6RX. In the past few days, our terrestrial(?) TV reception has become garbled. We have pulled everything out ( power, aerial etc) and reconnected them to no avail. Any thoughts?

Yes, it's current weather conditions providing some Tropospheric Ducting/Temperature inversion which allows interfering signals from distant transmitters in Europe or the UK to be received which degrade your own signal if you are in a weaker signal area.
I'm afraid it's the last thing your should do, trying to reset everything/retune when you have pixellated pictures or no signal - whether it be due to transmitter faults/maintenance or weather conditions. In most cases it will just clear your correct tuning and as you won't know when signals become adequate/normal you may have to retune several times to restore normal tuning.
If your aerial has its rods (or squashed Xs) horizontal pointing at compass bearing 114 degrees (~ESE) for the Stockland Hill transmitter, then the commercial multiplexes may be weaker than the main BBC/ITV/C4/C5 ones, but it all depends where the interference comes from, it's usually frequency dependent and doesn't often affect all multiplexes.
if the rods are vertical pointing at compass bearing 230 degrees (~SW) at the Tiverton relay, you may not be as vulnerable but will only get the main PSB multiplexes and not the commercial ones as those aren't broadcast from this "light" relay transmitter.
