Ignore the Line of Duty drama in the article - the point is my family who live down in Brixham are having issues since the March re-tune. Their BT Humax and TalkTalk Huawei Youview boxes (and even Televisions), are having issues of picture blanking and breaking up.

Torbay man couldn't watch Line of Duty after Freeview TV blackout - Devon Live

We've tried a number of things... Attenuator, 4G Filter (don't think its that), and new better fly leads to try and fix, but its sounds like its not just us having the issue.

The Freeview help-desk are fobbing off, but I'm encouraged its not just us in Torbay who are having issues with this reconfiguration. Even considering pointing at Stockland Hill instead.

Has anyone got any other thoughts given you might know more about frequencies and power (KW) configurations before March 2019 retune ?

Thanks in advance, Steve.

Hi Mike,

Its TQ5 8RD for the BT Humax Youview box, and TQ5 9EL for the TalkTalk Youview box.

Thanks, Steve

My father got an email yesterday saying....

"There will be engineers working at the Beacon Hill and relay transmitters tomorrow 29 May. The work will involve short switching breaks and the HD channels may be impacted for up to 8 hours between 09:00 17:00"

I guess they are looking at it - but this does seem to be dragging.

Lets see if there is any improvement in the next 24 hours.
