Fain as I am to criticise the programmes on British TV which I get from the Astra Satellite Free to Air (28.2) I must agree that the standards have slipped alarmingly over the past while. Now, to my dismay I have lost BBC 3 & 4 from this source. Can anyone tell me why ? BBC 4 especially was a favourite channel in our house.
As far as RTE and the other Irish Channels are concerned I recently purchased a Digital Set Top Box in order to receive these. It worked fine for about a fortnight then, since the very cold weather (could it have been a factor?) the picture "freezes" very often (pardon the pun), otherwise it breaks up into small " squares" and now, from most recently, I have sound only on RTE 2 and no picture whatsoever.
What the "blankety blank" is going on ?
Could a slight shakiness in the aerial mast that I have fixed to my house be a factor.I am pretty well exposed to westerly wind. Finally I wonder if my Digital Box could be damaged by these happenings ?
Can anyone advise me please?
