Coral Crossley: If you haven't retuned it then it would be expected to come back on again.

If you have retuned it and you are using a portable aerial then take it to the fixed (external) aerial in order to tune it in and then return it to its normal location.

Incidently, you may be able to receive all Freeview channels from Winter Hill. On Streetview I can see quite a few large Winter Hill aerials.

We have a digital Samsung TV which receives many freeview channels without the need for a box. We have had no TV channels since Saturday evening. This evening we were able to get a couple of freeview channels but nothing else, no BBC, ITV etc. Now we have nothing again just NO SIGNAL on every channel.

langton: Its impossible for anyone to give advice on this without having knowledge of your location, this in the form of a post code or one from nearby such as a shop etc, as this will then enable the reception predictor to be accessed which also gives details of the transmitter involved.

I have no signal in Glossop either. How often do you update your information on the transmitter? Its saying there is no problems and I think it said the same the last time the transmitter was out a few weeks ago which suggests is not a live situtation showing on the website>
