Watcher: Yes, most of them do. However, considering that no one has to answer any of the questions at all, its best to be aware that:

1) many questions could be answered by just using the manual/common sense.

2) Or by looking up the FAQ's on this site or just a quick Google

3) Many questions have nothing to do with the site at all. I continually wonder why people ask questions of True Entertainment, etc, which really should be sent to True Entertainment...

4) If you want your question answered, then you need to give a reasonable description of the problem ('the picture isn't good' really is not helpful) and things like a postcode. None of us are the NSA (they already know everything about you...), but without a postcode, you can't find out what transmitter is being used, what in the way of the signal, etc.

5) I've learnt a huge amount of stuff from just reading this site - JB38 & Dave Lindsay are real stars, and they and many others really know their stuff. And without Brianist, there would be no site at all. But pinpointing a problem is often difficult, and might be due to all sorts of factors - it can take time.

6) Sometimes there really are no answers, or if there are people dont always want to listen. 4G seems to be blamed for everything...

If you have a question, lets hear it.

@Steve, During the Analogue days, in the area to the South of Lincoln, Waltham was always affected by High Pressure with signals from the South and West blasting through (That's the direction the Aerials point), I used to often get perfect pictures from TVS/Meridian (Hannington transmitter, Hampshire) and Central (Oxford). Are you sure that you are not on the Waltham transmitter?

rachel: Its looks to be fine, although ask around the area to make sure. If everyone else is OK, I'm afraid its your system.
