Matt: Same problem here since the end of October. +1 channels started to go now dave has all but gone. E4 is good but E4+1 is nearly gone. I had no problems whatsoever before October 31st

Same problem here in MK17 8. Since early Nov' 2015 I have lost Dave, 4music and +1 channels. No amount of re tuning seems to help. Is this because of the Freeview play thing? do I need to buy a box now in order to receive programs that I have been watching happily for 5 years?

Now Yesterday has disappeared! No more Time Team. It's a Freeview meltdown! What aren't we being told? Things have gone to heck over this past week. MK17 8 area. Sandy Heath transmitter. Signal strength is good but quality has gone for a Burton. Loads of Channels on 1 or 2 in terms of signal quality. Can you explain this? Have 'updates' rendered my TV obsolete?

MikeB: Thanks for this glimmer of hope Mike! We'll see, come the colder weather. It's the way the signal quality, on certain stations varies so wildly that fascinates me. Maybe atmospheric conditions are the answer.

Another thing that fascinates me is how selective this break up of signal quality is. All BBC and Ch4 Ch5 Are fine as is E4. However: Yesterday, Dave E4+1 and 4Music are now all unwatchable, with a signal quality of 1-0. Something has changed at their end but What?

Freeview has never been worse. After 5 years of trouble free viewing half the channels are now unwatchable. What is going on?

Briantist: I am using a rooftop aerial as I have for this past year, with great success. All channels were crystal clear. I have not changed my MO one bit but now half my channels are missing, since the beginning of this month. Dave has gone. Yesterday has gone 4music gone too. about half the channels I used to watch, no bother are now unwatchable. Looks like I may have to opt for broadband TV as the signal is now so poor. Is this all a plot to get folks to pay up for Sky? Nothing but problems since those lavish adverts for Freeview Play started. Will I have to stump up for a Freeview Play box? just to get back to my former position. I am a bit peeved but not surprised. I always thought it was too good to last. Still. I refuse to ever pay the Skygeld!

Briantist: In fact, I'll be honest with you. the only channels I can now watch are BBCs, Ch4s, (apart from 4music) and ITVs. So I've pretty much lost all 'freeview' channels. Maybe they've "Updated" my TV into obsolescence? Whatever changes have been made have robbed me of freeview.
