Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Rosneath transmitter area
This P.M.,when our Digital TV was turned on the picture started breaking up on all channels followed by'No programme available' on bottom of the screen.Weather was windy and raining.
We have had this problem several times recently in similar weather so we bought an indoor aerial and tried it this P.M.but only got the channel name and number at top of the screen and 'No programme available'at bottom.
Any suggested cure,please?

A. Robertson: Well although you have posted your query under the very low powered Garelochhead transmitter heading, because you haven't indicated your location (post code) with regard to its location makes it impossible to assess your reception possibilities as far as the signal level expected from it is concerned, but in general terms your problem can be looked at in various ways.
If as you say using an indoor aerial (dependant on what, and where sited though!) and the situation was worse with nothing being received suggests you are in a very low signal area, this meaning if the signal path from the station is anywhere near (or over) trees etc you are liable to get fluctuations in signal strength, these being worse in rainy conditions.
Another factor has to be considered is that of the transmitter stations power supply being either reduced or cut to the because of weather conditions, more remote stations always being more vulnerable to this sort of thing with this obviously affecting transmission, but whatever the reason if your outdoor mounted aerial is stable and has not been knocked out of alignment then the situation is really out with your control.

Andrea green: If your neighbour is experiencing exactly the same problem as yourself and you are NOT using a communal aerial then its possible that some fault has developed at the transmitter, its therefore best to refrain from carrying out any further rescan operations as all you will do is lose the channels already stored in your TV or boxes memory, if of course you haven't partially done so already!
Unable to make any checks on the status of the transmitter without knowledge of your post code, or at least one from nearby such as a shop / post office etc.
