I keep losing the most common channels i.e. all BBC channels, ITV1 and Channel 4 intermittently. I search and these are sometimes there, sometimes not and even if tuned they can disappear for a few hours at a time. All other channels including the later ITV channels are unaffected. Is this an aerial issue or a TV issue? There are no reports of any issues at the Sandy Heath section which is where I am based.

Martin: As you are located at only 18 miles away from Sandy, then you have to consider the possibility that the problem is being caused by you receiving an excessively high level of signal that is peaking over the top at times and blocking your TV's tuner.
The other point is, that should you have any form of aerial splitter/ booster fitted then for a test it has to be by-passed, however if this does not apply and you are able to borrow a set top aerial then plug that in and give your TV re-tune, unless that is you know that the programmes are already stored in the EPG list.
Should you manage to receive reasonably OK by using a set top aerial, or even a short piece of wire (about 12 / 18") pushed into the middle of the aerial socket, then you require an attenuator to be fitted in line with the TV's aerials input socket.
I would be interesting to know what the signal strength / quality is being indicated at on your TV's check screen whilst on either BBC1 or ITV1, and are you using an outdoor aerial?
