Hi, having issues with all TV channels on COM7 which includes BBC News HD at postcode DD10 9LQ. I have followed the rescan instructions, even a full factory reset. This has a temporary effect of restoring the COM7 channels at 50% signal/quality, but can see it fluctuating between 50% and 0% every second. Don't have any issues with any other TV channels which all have signal strength 74% and signal quality 100%.
It appears to me that COM7 has been getting worse since the beginning of March. Very annoying. Can anything be done to improve the transmitter signal?

Raphael: A fluctuating signal like you describe is likely to be caused by a problem with your aerial system (e.g. a loose or damaged connection somewhere) or they aerial may have been moved by the wind or damaged by the bad weather over the last few weeks. COM7 & COM8 are broadcast at a much lower power level than the main PSB1-3 & COM4-6 muxes from Angus and would therefore be the most likely to show signs of a fault.
