    Hi guys in desperate need of some help here.
    As subject says bad reception for ITV + Ch4 services from crystal
    palace.

    here's my situation:-

    I had a high gain aerial (£40 one from Argos) installed by a
    professional on my roof with a small mask.
    Everything was fine for a few days but then ITV & Ch4 started to break
    up. Called him back he had a play around moving the aerial
    etc etc but still no reception he then advised that a higher mask and
    aerial change may fix the problem.

    I decided to leave it as it was, a few week later the reception was
    fine and it stayed that way during the summer months (April-October)
    getting around 8\10 for
    signal quality.

    Now it's gone pear shaped again and started to receive a bad signal as
    I did orginally.

    Any ideas I'm in desperate need of some help as I may soon have no
    option but to go for sky :-(
    which is definitely a last resort.

    All other channels are perfect....

    Dep

    This is interesting as I've just picked up a freeview box and can't get ITV or C4 at all. Maybe it's the signal itself that's the problem.
