David Mansell: I understand your fustration over the years at this particular relay transmitter but you have to remember it's not just this one that occasionally has the odd fault or engineering maintainance, it's all the other hundreds and hundreds of relays around the UK as well.

Todmorden in particular has an odd set up as instead of receiving its services direct from Emley Moor, the transmitter receives via Cornholme first.

Strange to think the location of the site was selected because of its line of site to Winter Hill ... sadly Winter Hill has absolutely nothing to do with Todmordens transmissions anymore

Harry of Oldham, I can only report what happens to my signal and today the HD signal seems to be very dodgy again, Ironically before this week the HD signal was fine and it was the SD signal which suffered from strange blips. It's bad enough having to suffer the second-class service which is Freeview-Lite but they ought to spend some money to make the transmitter more reliable. I just wish I could get all my television via the internet as we have FTTC here and average speeds of 35Mbp/sec.

David Mansell: Maybe they are just doing some important maintenance work to the transmitter hence the frequent service cut outs. If it is really annoying you, remember you could get Freesat, where you will also have a choice over which regional news program you want to receive!

I have no desire to use Freesat. It should not be beyond the wit of man to engineer a reliable terrestrial transmitter. I can, in fact , watch any BBC local news I want by changing my notional location on the BBC I-Player via Youview, which also has internet -based channels like Eurosport and BT Sport.It's just that it's a bit more awkward to use than normal TV.
