Had precisely the same problem as Tom Howes. All HD channels there on Saturday morning, set the box to record Doc Who - nothing- 50, 51, 52 and 54 still missing today. They were full signal strength and quality. Really annoying

Mine's back on too. Its fine and I'm happy but how do we know its back for good.

There were no faults reported during this period, and I got an automated reply from BBC. Can we do anything else. I'd live in fear of setting the recorder for something I care about seeing in future on the HD channels.

And I've just discovered the hd channels have gone again. The signal quality is zero i notice on the hd channels, but signal strength is at 10/10. Earlier today both strength and quality were at 10/10. Is this a clue to the problem do you think?

Cheers Briantist I've just called the BBC and they have a had a series of reports of this problem across nottingham: postcodes ng1 to ng20 - so this covers me and my fellow nottingham commenters.

The BBC talk to the people who run the transmitters as I understand - doesn't sound like we license payers get to contact them.

Something is going on - annoying how it simply says 'the transmitter has no problems etc' if it said it did (which there clearly are) I could get on with my Easter weekend without puzzling over if it my aerial and kit and whether I need to do something. The public are happy if they are informed!!!

Thanks Briantist I hope this helps you other commentators

Sit and wait - they'll be back

Finally an acknowledgement from the Beeb.

Thanks to Briantist, Tom, Stewart and others. I sadly let myself be pacified by the bbc when I rang yesterday - they acknowledged they'd had calls but didn't say what they'd do. Well done for pestering Arquiva.

Is this the Big Society in action? - we'll get moving when we're motivated!!

I'm British and I demand television!

Seriously though - thanks and well done
