D Mac.: Although the chances are that you "will" have to change its direction, but though its impossible to advise on what the direction should be without having knowledge of your location, this preferably being in the form of a post code or one from nearby, e.g: a shop / post office.

We registered a 'No Signal' on the evening of Friday 20 March 2015, although the Sony TV was operating as normal earlier in the day. All attempts to restore the signal have failed. Please can you advise us on next steps. We are both over 75 so many thanks for any help you can provide. Our postcode is EH16 5NU - and the system has been operating without interruption since the switchover in 2011.

John M Francis: If you look at the top of the page, you'll see that there are no apparent problems with the transmitter. And R & Ti Services say the same thing.

So, if its not the transmitter, it must be you! Check that the aerial lead hasn't fallen out the back of the TV, etc. If that looks fine, its likely to be a break in the cable somewhere leading from the aerial to the socket, water in the cable, a busted booster, etc. Your probably best getting someone out to look at it.
