Upgrading from Sky to Freesat | Freesat

-today I have suddenly lost ITV1,2,yesterday, with the set top box( a humax pvr 9200t) showing plety of signal (84%) but no data integrity (between 0 & 10 %)

this has lasted from about 2 pm to now (8.15)
I have 2 sets, each with its own outdoor aerial, and BOT are affected!

In the past this used to happen to BBC- I lost all channels during the summer, and used analogue - but the BBC sems to have got its act together now
Any ideas? It seems to be sync problems?

When I asked what would happen at switchove, because I routinely lost the BBC channels for 8 eeks or so in the summer, and had to use analogue (which had ghosting...) I was told the power increases would solve this problem.#

I still lose bbc chamnnels, particularly in hot weather - and cant use analogue any more! the only difference is that sound goes more frequently than picture break up.

I am on Bluebell hill, in a weak signal area, but with amplifiers in the aerial leads - and BBC frequencies are on the extreme edge of the high gain aerial bandwid.

Is any thing likely to improve?

PS I cant use satellite as there are trees in the way... I have tried!!
