Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Black Hill transmitter area
We are in PA7 area (Bishopton) and have display problem with STV, Virgin Media Channel 103. This is showing as 4:3 display instead of normal widescreen. STV HD is displaying perfectly ok. We had the same issue affecting C4, but it now appears to be ok. I have checked cables & settings on TV & V+ box, as well as running V+ TV Care (reset), but it's made no difference. I read that Black Hill is having engineering works this week. Could that be causing the problem?
I checked on the Virgin Media forum and someone from G61 is also having this problem.

Hi From postcode G1 4LH
My Tv's went blank on Wed 20th Nov from about late morning for about 6 hours. I tried resetting on both, when they restarted - I found that I had good reception on most, but i had lost about 30 plus chanels. i tried resetting again to no avail.
the stations are those served by Com5 arqA and Com6 argB.
