graham: Check that your TV/box is tuned to the correct transmitter and that you aren't unwittingly watching the signals from a different transmitter. View the signal strength screen and check that the following are tuned to the right UHF channel:

BBC One C52
ITV1 C49
BBC One HD C47
ITV3 C42
Pick TV C44
Film4 C41

Haywards Heath's are 45, 46 and 43.

Sound OK, but no vision or vision breaking up on the H.D. channels and Film Four +1 (PSB3)
Haywards Heath relay, from or before 5:15pm and still not working at 6:45pm
PSB1 and PSB2 ok.
Don't know if problem is the Haywards Heath relay or Heathfield transmitter.
