David Mansell: The transmitter engineering posts are automated and often do not appear until several hours later. No one is telling you how to use your equipment, although it isn't unreasonable to assume that by posting on an unofficial technical help website that you were seeking assistance to resolve your loss of signal. Loose or damaged cables and connections are a common cause of faults and are an entirely sensible starting point if no information was available at the time of posting regarding engineering work.

StevensOnln1: I posted on this website to alert people to the fact that the Todmorden relay was not working whereas the website said that there were no engineering problems. I checked with the BBC reception website, which did report the problem, before posting here. Mr P. posted 12 hours later without checking anywhere else. I said that there were no TV or radio signals, which do not involve aerial cables if you are using a portable set. People shouldn't jump with both feet if they are not sure of their facts and can't even be bothered to correct their spelling mistakes.

Having the same issues as David Mansell.
Started whilst I was at work Tuesday 25th, since then I have perfect HD reception, blocking on SD.
Various TVs and PVR boxes report signal strength 70 to 98%, always with quality 100%.

LG TV asked (yet again!) for a channel map change retune this afternoon, but no change - still blocking on SD.
Outdoor aerial top of chimney, DA in loft renewed last year, line of sight to Tod relay. Not a single reception problem before this.

I'd love to know what's going on - now 2 people here having the same issue with no change to their kit. Appreciate there are reports of engineering work, but seems odd.

It's off again since 7.44 pm. BBC reception site says engineering work taking place. Luckily I can watch the football via the internet.
