Midhurst transmitter. DAVE. Freeview Chanel 12. Picture has been breaking up badly for couple of months. Thought might be weather but never that bad before. Have tried re-tune. Any ideas anyone?

what is your location? postcode?

is this the only channel not working correctly?

do you this is on more than 1 tv?

is your aerial outside?

approx. age of aerial/cables?

do you have an amplifier?

I've also noticed this. Getting worse each week with terrible blocky redemption and virtually no sound. Now all I get on Dave channel (freeview box) is a "no signal" error. Other channels still picking up fine.

Ruth vH: Dave (12) is transmitted on the same multiplex channel as used by PickTV (11) and Sky News (82), are those latter two programme channels also problematic?

It would also have been of assistance if you had given an idea of your location, this in the form of a post code or one from somewhere nearby, e.g: a shop / Post Office, as this would then have enabled info regarding the transmitter to be accessed.

Same problem. Ever since started recording Suits always ends up pixelating and find cannot do catchup on laptop. Now missed the last 3 episodes, so what's the point.
One would be bad reception, two possibly but three! And don't blame aerial as it's high gain digital which works with all other channels.

ditto same problems suits, pick tv and drama reception absolutely unwatchable on freeview this week.. hope the guys paying for the commercials know that they're not reaching the audience figures they pay for!

DAVE TV - dopped completely from my FREEVIEW BOX
Live on coast (Dover) and believe signal strengh decreased so not to antagonize French/Dutch/BELGIUMS - never mind the fact that they broadcast at very high signal .strength
