We have had no freeview signal since 9.15 this morning. It happens far too often to make the licence fee worth paying. We don't get a full freeview service at the best of times, but this is very annoying. We don't even get digital radio!

Brian:

As you have no doubt discovered by now, your signals are back. The BBC have reported that the transmitter was Off the air due to essential engineering from 9:02am to 1:32pm on 4th Jun 2021.
Just so you know, advice is not to retune if you lose signal (for whatever reason) as this usually just clears the correct tuning.
Going by previous reports, the transmitter doesn't appear to be off-air on a frequent basis.

There are DAB radio transmissions from the Peebles transmitter, it transmits the BBC National multiplex Block 12B: 225.648 MHz. If you provide a full postcode we may be able to provide some reception advice. We might also be able to advise if you may be able to receive the commercial TV multiplexes from another transmitter. Other options are Freesat, if you have an unobstructed view to the Astra 2 satellite 28.2 deg E. A lot of modern sets have built in satellite tuners, so all you need is the Dish and LNB.

B French:

The Peebles transmitter is a relay of Selkirk and some viewers have been having problems with it but I can't find any "official" fault reports! Based on comments I've seen you should be getting the HD channels (if your set has an HD tuner) so you should have ITV, Ch4 and Ch5 in HD.
Do not retune as this will just generally clear your correct tuning and you'll just have to repeat the process when signals are back to normal.
If you are still having issues, please provide a full postcode so we can look at predicted reception in your locale.
