My mum has been experiencing some freeview problems where she lives in Bexhill-on-sea. She has tried to tape something this afternoon but it won't allow her to do it, this has happened before and what will happen is that everything that she has on tape will be lost by tomorrow morning. They will just dissapear from the hard drive menu. Is this a problem with the transmitter or her freeview box. This has been happening for a couple of months, all her programmes keep getting deleted off without warning. The box seems to be fine, a prompt does come up telling her that they are working on the transmitter, but we don't understand how the progs get deleted she must need a new freeview box doesn't she? We would appreciated some help/advice on this! Thank you!

kevin: For anyone to be able to assist you really have to provide info on the model of the Freeview box that's being used as well as the recorder in question, plus of course the post code so that the expected signal strength being received at the location can be evaluated.

anne: What do you have connected to your aerial? A TV maybe? A digital box (recorder/PVR).
What are the makes and models of these devices?
I am thinking that the reason could be that your device is tuned to the wrong transmitter. An explanation of this is here:
Digital Region Overlap | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice
If you say what models you have, I might be able to pull up the instructions for them and guide you as to how to check they are tuned correctly.
Also, what transmitter is your aerial pointing at? A quick look of your road on Google Streetview shows most on Emley Moor. (DN31NJ)
