PS - Another thing the aerial engineers said when they came out last year was: the aerial is a loft aerial. They replaced it. I asked if it should go outside (not ideal as we live in a very windy location). They said no because they said the co-interference problem would probably be worse if the aerial was outside. I may be completely imagining this but I think they said something about magnification across the sea and the expanse of sea infront of us.
Not sure if that makes any sense. But still cannot see how the weather conditions of the last 48 hrs could have led to a complete break down in BBC services.

Hi, Help. Have completely lost all BBC services. I live in an area that is apparently known to suffer from co-interference (sometimes lose BBC channels for a while and pick up France perfectly) - Seatown, West Dorset. We have lived here for 18 months and experienced this occasionally during good weather last summer. Got the local aerial engineers in and they checked our aerial, confirmed the position, and said there was nothing we could do about it short of getting freesat or sky.
However, the weather is now awful, and over the course of the last few days the BBC channel signals have been coming and going / pixellating etc. Yesterday, we got to a position where all TV's in the house are totally unable to pick up any BBC channel at all (ITV is perfect), and nothing has come back yet, not even a pixellating picture.
I have tried rescanning them all several times - no change. Aerial has not moved. No trees near us (just lots of sea). No neighbours either in fact.
I don't understand how this can be co-interference given that there is no high pressure at present. I've searched the internet to see if anyone else is complaining about BBC channel loss, or any "aerial" event occurring over the last week, but I can find nothing.
Any ideas on what might have happened? Do you agree that we just need to accept the financial outlay of cabling house for freesat and give up on freeview?
THanks for any thoughts
