Ivor Buckley: Firstly, retuning will never fix a problem with bad signal as the TV was already correctly tuned (retuning just deletes the channels which were already stored and searches for them again). Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind the TV? Please provide a full postcode so we can see which transmitter you're using, where you are in relation to it and your predicted signal strength etc.
