    With the current heatwave, we can only receive bbc and lesser channels clearly, all ITV channels are breaking up consistently so impossible to watch. I thought going digital was meant to eliminate weather interference. It clearly doesn't and it is very frustrating.

    We've had days of glorious sunny weather - coolish air temperatures (22C yesterday) but very strong sunlight in exceptionally clear air. It cooled down a bit this pm, though.

    The problem is high pressure:

    Nothing you can do about it unless you can receive more than one transmitter, in which case it's worth a try manually tuning to the ITV mux on the other one, even if it is weaker.

    Castle Acre in Norfolk yesterday - just stunning:

    Maybe they're trying to tell you something. Nice weather, couped up indoors when bikes could be ridden.

    Pffft!

    Has he a digital aerial, and do you think it's not able to cope with warmer weather. A bit like a chocolate fireguard.

    Have you thought of changing the arial ?

    Changed ours at our Caravan near Prestatyn last year as it 'fell to bits'. Can now get Granada, Wales and Isle of Mann ! Before, even Granada got a bit pixelated.

    Get a satellite dish and a Freesat box. Freeview can be rubbish unless you live in an area with a strong signal.

    I'd forgotten too - I found last year's discussion when searching for one of my old posts about my satellite dish! :laugh:

    I hate amazon, but have to admit that the amazon firestick solves that very problem
