The symbol shows the location of the Weymouth (Dorset, England) transmitter which serves 20,000 homes. The bright green areas shown where the signal from this transmitter is strong, dark green areas are poorer signals. Those parts shown in yellow may have interference on the same frequency from other masts.

Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Weymouth (Dorset, England) mast?

A Briggs: Its nice of Samsung to tell you this (I didn't know they did this - a question for the Samsung rep I think!), but Dave is right - there is nothing listed for the Weymouth transmitter.

OK - if your PVR is fine, did it need retuning? Unless it did an automatic retune, then is it one the same transmitter as your TV? If you look at the Digital UK predictor for your postcode Coverage Checker - Detailed View you find that there was a retune needed, but on the Bincombe Hill Transmitter, not Weymouth.

Both are relays, and both really close, but are in almost opposite directions. This might explain why your TV has problems - its picking up a signal which is pretty much opposite to the direction your aerial is facing, and possibly a different one to your PVR.

Check the PVR's settings - I bet its still on Weymouth, not Bincombe. Obviously check signal strength on both tuners and which direction your aerial is facing. You might need to manually retune, or rethink which transmitter you want to go for.

A Briggs: I am surprised that Samsung would write to customers to let them know that a transmitter is changing its channel and so a retune will be required. It's not its job and a profit-making company I'm surprised to find that it would do such a thing.

Obviously Samsung, or any other company for that matter, cannot know with certainty which transmitter any one person is using.

I wouldn't think that it would have tuned to Bincombe Hill because its channels are higher than Weymouth's and so it will be picked up after it during the scan.

Have you tried doing a manual tune?

For Weymouth, BBC is on C47 and ITV, C4, C5 etc are on C44.

Has anyone else been having breakups in their picture? I have been having them since yesterday and so has my neighbour, and it is now unwatchable. It would happen during the World Cup and Wimbledon!

I think for those viewers living in fringe areas where signals are available for the respective BBC and ITV channels more information should be available for them to choose which area they want to receive the signals from so that they can align their antennas accordingly as I understand that it is not now possible on one TV receiver on digital to receive more than one signal from each region.

Nick Anderson: If you put your postcode into this site, you should bring up a load of links, including DigitalUK's website. If you just go to the DigitalUK site, put in your postcode and click 'detailed view', it will tell you exactly what bearing the transmitters closest to you are, plus frequencies, expected signal, etc.
