  • Up on the cliff the TV reception is quite erratic. Mrs. Eagle's feathers v ruffled when East Enders "went blocky" and got cut off - came back on with the titles going up - missed the dum - de - dum (Dumb!) moment. Same with Hotel Babylon it went off in the middle. :( :(
    Does this happen only in our nest or does the whole village lose the channel. If so -why? and can anything be done about it.

  • Assuming you are using the sytem received via a UHF aerial (not dish) from Gomera, I am assured by the provider that they now have two "blocks" of channels (a "block" being BBC 1 and 2, ITV, Chan 4, Chan 5).  I believe the idea is that if one "block" looses it's signal the other might be OK.  They also now provide two Arab Sports Channels, with European sports programmes.  You need to take your magic box into the shop to have it updated (while you wait at no charge, assuming you have paid your license fee!).  My box has not been updated yet but it was working well late March.
