Since the Freeview retune the signal strength of the new channels has been sub-par with pixellation and freezing and occasional 'no signal'. This is in Barrow in Cumbria. Has there been a deliberate reduction in signal because nothing has changed from our reception end since 12th Aug? It's like chalk and cheese.

The channel 55 signal is mostly dead currently. No signal message and on checking the strength and quality it's barely getting off the floor. This is in LA14. Also poor a couple of weeks ago as I attempted to record a BBC4 programme and it only recorded 11 mins from an hour. Tonight the same programme and time and it's displaying no signal. Same with BBC News on 107 which is the same channel 55. I assume weather but why affect just 55.

Hi there again Chris, thanks for the previous comments, the issue just went away. Yesterday and tonight the loss of channels has been a bit more widespread affecting most HD and some non-HD channels cutting out for lengthy periods. Not sure whether it's the high pressure conditions again that causes it. Also foggy most of today so not sure whether the water droplets affect the signal. Seems to be more interference than in the old analogue days!

Strange effects on Dave (UKTV) on ch35. Intermittently it's like it can't work out the screen aspect and flickers briefly between wide screen and back to normal. It's not affecting the audio which I would have expected if it was poor signal or interference. No other channel affected and it continues during the adverts so that excludes it being program specific.
LA14 using NW region and Preston option.
