Hannington signal seems to have gone very low level this evening. It's caused a disk wipe (1TB) on my Topfield. :(

andyfras: There doesn't seem to be any faults on the transmitter. And why would a low signal cause a disk wipe?

It's a known problem on Topfield PVRs. A signal causing break-up will often corrupt the disk.

I've just checked again and there's an almost usable ITV mux, but nothing on the others. If it's the same tomorrow, and no one else is having a problem, I'll check the cabling in the loft. Perhaps a squirrel has chewed it.

After some investigation in the loft, I found that water had got into the aerial cable, then run into the splitter and damaged it. So the transmitter (and squirrel) were blameless.

At least I've got plenty of space on the PVR disk now; who needs 200 crime dramas anyway?
