Stuart: I wrote the bit pointing you to my experience with a loft aerial before looking at the problem with the trees.

On the basis that you say that it is worse during darkness, I am of the opinion that it is far more likely to the trees. However, that doesn't stop you experimenting if it is possible to increase the gap between the inside of the roof and the back and front of the aerial.

thx for the reply dave, i would have put the aerial on the chimney if it wasnt for my complete fear of hieghts lol.
i see were your coming from with cove hills they would be in my line of sight i have a school field in front of me with the nearest tree about 250 meters away.
it just seems strange that 90% of the time i get great freeview on all muxs then every now and then it drops like a stone.
maybe its just something i am going to have to get used to, as cant afford a expert as out of work at the moment.
my pvr cant get on with it as when the signal drops it gets gaps in a recorded program.
we used to get the same problem on a 2 year old aerial mounted on the chimney facing crystal palace but it is a new aerial in the loft with new coaxail and new plugs i am using rf plugs for the join.

we could have got help under the help scheme but when the guy came out he said that the chimney had to many aerials on it so he could not do anything about it and went.
he said the bbc would not take old aerials down that have been up there since the seventies.
i had a new one fitted by a family member 2 years ago which didnt really work and i dont want to have to pay out again to rent a ridge ladder.
anyway thank you for your help.

stuart: It's not surprising that you couldn't pick up any digital TV from Hannington before switchover because it was severly reduced in strength in your direction due to the fact that Guildford used the same channels.

If you have a seventies aerial on Hannington, then you should definately try it now. Indeed, I see on Streetview that quite a few houses have an aerial on each transmitter.

If you have a Crystal Palace aerial and you haven't tried it since it switched to digital in April, then you should try that as well.

Is this a recent problem (ie you used to get good reception, but now you don't) or an ongoing problem (ie you've always had bad reception)?

If the former, then it's likely to be caused by recent damage to your aerial or cabling (unlikely to be the TV). From Google StreetView on your postcode, I cannot see any external aerials in your location, which suggests you and neighbours have loft mounted aerials? Check for damage caused by rodents - some years ago I had squirrels gnaw through cables in my loft in the past!

What sort of signal strength/signal quality are you getting on the channel 45 stations, and (when you get them at all) on the channel 42 stations?

Today (24th July)I have 'no signal' in respect of BBC1, BBC2 and the BBC radio stations on my Freeview setup and the same stations yesterday were problematical.
Is there a general problem in the area?
My address is Shaftesbury Close, Bracknell RG12 9PX.
