Good morning,
I recently took my aerial out for safety purposes as we were going away and storms were predicted. When we put the aerial back in we had lost our connection to the Oxford transmitter and are now connected to West Midlands. That's fine, but we have lost lots of channels that we regularly watch. I have re-tuned lots of times, but no luck.

Any suggestions please?

Many thanks in anticipation

Morning,

Further to my earlier post - still no luck.
1. Everything is as it was - aerial still in the right direction and all equipment connected
2. Have tried re-tuning with booster and without - makes no difference
3. Have tried re-tuning with VCR and without - makes no difference
4. Have unplugged aerial and re-tuned - still only finds West Midlands
5. Have tried manual re-tuning of all advised stations - finds a strong signal but does not save the channels (perhaps it's the TV???)
Any suggestions would be most gratefully received. Frankly I'm cock-a-hoop because it has obliterated the channel that features Fred Dibnah but my husband hasn't stopped moaning since it happened and somehow it is MY problem!!

Over to you experts.

Hi jb38 and MikeP,

Just to clarify - and thank you both for trying to help it's really appreciated - since we had the digital aerial installed - about two, three years ago I suppose - we have always received BBC One South Oxford/ITV Meridian/Central and a whole host of channels. The installer said that he would point the aerial in that direction because we would receive more channels which we did with no problems at all. In the meantine we have re-tuned occasionally as advised and continued to receive Oxford.

I have done a manufacturer's reset jb38 and then tried to tune to the Oxford Channels. It says the signal is strong, but then does not store the channels. I also did this after tuning without the aerial in - so effectively picking up nothing and then trying to tune to Oxford, but it just reverts to West Mids. I am now thinking of calling out the company that installed the aerial to see if they can alter things. Can't think that it would be the TV really.

Hi JB38, finally we have a resolution. Turns out the booster was u.s. and we needed a new power unit on the aerial. All channels are now back on line and we are a few pounds poorer!! Thanks for all your efforts, much appreciated.
