Crieff

I have had problems for several weeks with Freeview reception from the Crieff transmitter. Channels on the BBCA and BBCB multiplexes are either absent or in case of HD badly scrambled. Channels on the D3+4 seem to be fine. I have a rooftop aerial. Is there a problem with the transmitter?

Martin Moody: According to the post above yours, Crieff was off air for several hours last weekend although there are not notices of any work/outages since then. According to the DigitalUK prediction for your postcode there are also weaker signals present from the Black Hill transmitter so check you haven't ended up tuned to those frequencies by mistake. Also make sure you check for any loose or damaged cables behind the TV, as that is the most common cause of reception problems.
