Briantist: Karl has posted Hi on Sat 26th July at approx 10 30pm I lost all Freeview Channels Prior to this we had @pomosgirl
Briantist: Read this! You know you want to... is out!
Briantist: @JamesCridland is how to enable IE8 de-bugging...
JamesCridland: @Briantist Cool, will give that a try. Odd that it works on everything else, naturally.
Briantist: @JamesCridland you could stuff in a document.location = 'http://.....' in the onclick?
Briantist: @JamesCridland Tools/Internet Options/Advanced tab/Display a notification about every script error box
JamesCridland: @Briantist return false will guarantee the link doesn’t work in any browser, which isn’t quite what I’d like. Hmm...
Briantist: @JamesCridland My *guess* is that you might need to stuff a ";return false" in the onclick even for IE8 to follow the href...
JamesCridland: @Briantist Yes (I use a different virtual service) but no idea how to test. Not used Windows since 2009!
Briantist: @JamesCridland Have you got yourself an XP+IE8 test environment setup using ?

the signal from channel 26 Crystal Palace has been very poor for the past 3 days meaning a lot of pixellating on the channels it serves. Have tried auto and manual retune and checked cables etc. but no improvement. Is there a problem with this channel at the moment?

Susan Pritchard: There are no problems, can you please see <img src="data:image/png;base64,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" class="xico" style="vertical-align:text-bottom" alt=" link icon" link iconSingle frequency interference | - independent free digital TV advice ?

I have the same problem as Susan. Channel 26 Crystal Palace has become unwatchable.

Briantist - thank you for that link, but unfortunately I can't see that anything has changed that would affect reception (eg games console)

If both Susan and I are having the same problems, and in the same time period, I wonder if there are more in this situation?

Saturday 9 June 2012 11:17PM

Charles W: you are located at only 2 miles away from the massively high powered transmitters at Crystal Palace and as such your TV or boxes tuner could be suffering from being grossly overloaded depending on the aerial system being used, for a test try a set top aerial or alternatively a short piece of wire (about 12/18" or so) inserted into the inner part of the aerial socket.

I am in The Wrekin transmitter area (very close but in the shadow of Ketley Bank.
I have only been on Freeview for a week or so
Suddenly today all programmes on COM6
ArqB Channel 47 (682 mhz) have gone.

The signal strength is showing as 60 to 65% just as before but no picture/sound except for an occasional badly pixilated frame.

All other channels are ok

Any ideas please?

Saturday 20 October 2012 9:22AM Telford

Everything fine this morning on that mux .. another one is a bit dodgy .. must be the weather!!

Sunday 21 July 2013 12:21PM Manchester

One TV works well finally with the BBC channels on freeview. The Linsar TV gives no BBC channels at all and we have done exactly the same as we did on the other TV. The signal is coming through fine for the other channels but not BBC channels. Cannot think what to do next - any ideas
