They're now trying to claim there has been a weak signal from 16.36. I'm in a clear line with the transmitter, on a hill not the trough of the valley and I can confirm there is still no signal.

Heat? How come it has been off since 8.30am this morning then. It certainly wasn't hot then.

Does anyone know who to complain to about this?

The weak signal only applies to HD Digital TV - Thats Freeview HD // Mux HD.

The BBC reception site doesn't even acknowledge a problem with non-BBC channels. Crazy.

24 hours plus outage. No information. No place to report or complain... Goodness!

The very limited choice on this transmitter is pathetic but in circumstances Why provide rabbit channels ? And not ones one might use?

This terrestrial service is generally poor when it works. It needs to be improved even before this current failure.

Wesley: Although the Bath transmitter had problems nearly all day yesterday this was supposedly fixed, but of course maybe the problem has returned.

You should try a signal check on your TV just to ensure that the problem channels are actually being picked up from the Bath transmitter on Ch28 and not from Box on Ch50 which is 5 miles away.

Although if you are receiving Ch28, then you will have no option but to wait until the problem rectifies itself.
