Pontypool (Torfaen, Wales) Full Freeview transmitter
Monday 26 December 2011 6:49PM

Wanted 'Yesterday' channel on 24th Dec, but although all, or most, other channels (freeview) were there, channel 12 definitely was not, screen message said 'no signal' available

Gear is Samsung 40" LCD,
Samsung FV PVR, all cables are OK, antenna is a twelve element digital specific type, aimed at (?) Pontypool, but could be hitting on Mendips, I have clear line of sight on both TX stations, my antenna is at approx 300 Mtrs ASL, I ain't about to go fiddling at this hour, nor in the rain.
Presently alignment is horizontal, but easy reached to swing it to vertical.

However, I was under the impression in digital alignment was immaterial, I could be wrong, perhaps I read the 'rules' wrong when I first got TV.
