Had no reception on TV or radio channels today. Is this related to the weather (snow) and will it be resolved soon? Message is 'no or weak signal'

I have a standard roof-top arial.

When will the full channel list for the Wall transmitter be available, and its signal be improved for the periphery of its coverage.

Jeff: Never. There is now a two-tier terrestrial television transmitter network. See here for an explanation:

Perhaps you can receive the full service from Pontop Pike. The house with the yellow door has its aerial on Pontop, and Digital UK suggests it might be a possibility:
