Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Caldbeck Scotland transmitter area
I have a digital box so that I can watch TV, but in the past wee or so the signal has become very poor and and in the last few days i have lost ALL BBC programs including the radio. It keeps coming up with a 'NO SIGNAL' message. I have an indoor aerial pointed directly at the mast which is unobstructed less than a quarter of a mile away.

David Ironside: The question would be where are you located? although if the mast you are referring to is a main station then the reason for your problem could be due to severe signal overloading, as that can cause "exactly" the same symptoms on a TV / box as does a weak signal, so "if" main station does apply then for a test try a short piece of wire pushed into the inner part of the aerial socket and see if the BBC returns.
This provided you haven't carried out a re-scan since it disappeared, as if you have then re-scan with the wire.
