Stewart: I've been having problems with all channels apart from bbc ones , which are perfect. pixalating of picture and sound and then eventually a blank screen and a low signal message. Postcode is SP2 0HH

richard alford: The first thing to check is that your receiver (TV and/or box) is tuned to the transmitter to which your aerial faces. The most likely possibility is that it is tuned correctly for BBC and not for others.

Bring up the signal strength screen on the following and observe the tuned UHF channel:

BBC One | Salisbury=C57 | Rowridge=C24
ITV | Salisbury=C60 | Rowridge=C27
BBC One HD | Salisbury=C53 | Rowridge=C21
ITV3 | Salisbury=C50 | Rowridge=C25
Pick | Salisbury=C59 | Rowridge=C22
4Music | Salisbury=C55 | Rowridge=C28

If it turns out that some are tuned to the wrong transmitter then you should be able to correct this by either running the scan through with the aerial unplugged (so as to blank what's stored) and then manually tuning the required channels, or; run the automatic tuning scan through with the aerial unplugged for the part of the scan which the unwanted transmitter broadcasts [you will note that Rowridge's channels are low (in the 20s) and Salibury's are high (50s and 60)].

Hi, as a regular viewer, I have noticed that both Dave and movies4men have very highly compressed sound... This gives very annoying artifacts on the treble part of the sound... Almost up watchable....
Why is it so bad when most other channels are fine...
Surely this has been heard by your technicians ?please help!!

Why is the Dave reception so bad in Norfolk? I live near Watton but have IP25 post code not an NR post code.

mark manwaring-white: Frankly, the audio is the least of their problems! They seem to show straight-to-video films from 20 years ago, with the picture quality of a knockoff video tape. In fact it wouldn't surprise me if they were just going through someones old video collection.
