    Freeview problems

    Is anyone else having problems with Freeview tonight in the South West. Anyone know what the problem is? Me mum is having trouble too, so I know it's not my TV's or freeview boxes.

    Hi, You will just need to retune the freeview and it will come back,

    Hope this helps

    It is just a change in the way they transmit the signal

    Hi , Thanks for this, but I have just tried re-tuning the TV and it is showing I now only have 67 channels instead of the 80+ I had before. It seems to be especially BBC channels where there is a problem, but not exclusively.

    We had the same problem in the South East a couple of days ago. Re-tuned, turned off and on tv at plug and it was fine.

    Probably a transmitter on reduced power, or weather related problems, it should get sorted, or sort itself.

    Thanks for replies, rep added.

    Eventually came back on after 1.5 Hours. Our switchover is soon, so I guess they were "tweaking" things?
