Thanks for your help and advice.
A signal booster has solved the problem.
I am tuned to the Sheffield transmitter.

I have a Hitachi TV with inbuilt Freeview. After the changeover I received all the channels I should have and everything was fine until a few weeks ago when the pictures were completely breaking up on some channels ( eg 10 ITV 3, 11 Pick , 12 Dave , 23 Bid ). Retuning both from the Installation menu and removing aerial, retuning and retuning again with aerial connected had no effect. Once the retuning resulted in losing all the effected channels. These were recovered using the aerial removal method. My daughter who has a different make of television with inbuilt Freeview but was tuned to a different transmitter also received all channels after changeover but after 6 months started to loose channels. Eventually despite numerous retuning she lost all of them. ( She solved the problem by changing to Freesat.
The query I ask is, is it possible that tuners fail because of the amount of retuning done ?
A further reason I ask is that I have found that if I connect a Freeview Set Box between my Aerial and TV certain of the effected channels are OK ( eg 11 Pick , 17 Really, 29 E4+1 ) whilst the rest the sound is fine and there is only minimal breaking up of the picture. Any help or advice would be appreciated over this problem Thanks
