Winter Hill (Bolton, England) transmitter
Sunday 27 November 2016 11:27AM
Church Stretton

Our postcode is SY6 7BP for last 12 years receiving best signal from Winter Hill (although we should in theory get better reception from Midlands transmitter we're situated right under Hazler Hill transmitter). In Dec 15 we had new Sony tv and Panasonic PVR. We quite recently did a channel update reset. Very few problems until last weekend 18th/19th Nov when BBC1 and BBC2 suddenly pixelated and no signal' came up; other BBC channels were the same but ITV etc were ok. Lasted about 24 hours. All BBC channels then ok until last night when same thing happened (in middle of Strictly! although luckily we were able to switch to Catch-up and watch without problem which seemed peculiar in itself). Winter Hill online reported no current problems each time.
What's the best course of action to get to the bottom of the problem? Do you understand it? Can you help with advice? Many thanks.
