Want to better understand the current TV faults? See the all new UK Free TV page

The "All transmitters with faults and engineering" page has been upgraded to make it easier to understand where the current faults are on the Freeview transmitter network.

The  All transmitters with faults and engineering   page has be
published on UK Free TV

See: All transmitters with faults and engineering

Following from your suggestions, I have made changes to the icons used to show which Freeview transmitters have fault or engineering status associated with them.

Previously, you had to look quite hard to see which transmitters had current faults, and which had faults listed for the last few days.

The new format for the page looks like this.

Only the sites with "live" faults are shown with the yellow symbol (those with Digital UK's "this week" status, a pink border).

I hope the above listed changes will help you to understand where the current faults and system outages are.

The new symbols carry though to other pages that shows transmitter symbols.

Janette Chalmers: Hi Janette. Viewers in Llantwit Fardre are advised to use the main Wenvoe full Freeview transmitter, a few miles West/South-West of Cardiff. There are no reported problems on this transmitter and so you need to THOROUGHLY check your aerial leads and connections ( tv end and wall-plate end). Ask your next door neighbours if they are having ay reception problems too. It could be that high air pressure and warm temperatures are affecting your reception and , of course, you can't do anything about those - other than to wait until atmospheric conditions change so as to improve your reception. hope this is of assistance, Richard, Norwich.

Is there a problem with the signal in the Guisborough area. On tv it says no signal????. I'm asking this on behalf of my next door neighbour who is 90. She has nothing now.

Astrid Terlouw: Find your local transmitter on this site and check if its working ok. If it is, then its likely to be her system, perhaps nothing more than a loose connection or broken cable. Follow back from the back of the TV, and see if there is a problem.

Astrid Terlouw: Hi, Astrid. You need to go around to your neighbour to inform her that her local tv transmitter, Guisborough, was off the air yesterday evening, which is the reason for her television reporting, ' no signal' because there was no signal to be had for her! Richard, Norwich.
