TV switched on this morning and shows "No Signal" on any digital channel.  All I can get is TV3 on ATV.  Tried another TV and my PC tuner and the same problem.  Anyone else having issues?

Where do you live? Aerial or satellite?

Have you looked at your aerial, and connectors etc

And also on the freeview NZ facebook page there are no mentions of any issues from anyone (freeview or the general public), normally if there is a big outage you get loads of posts on the facebook page

Go into the settings for your Freeview decoder. Check the "Antenna Power" option is set to ON

My Freeview box (T1020 with modifications) sometimes loses that setting and without antenna power, I get zero signal. There's a masthead preamp up there somewhere, your setup might be similar.

Thanks all.

I'm getting TV3 on ATV (analog signal)

The problem MUST be with the antenna on the roof.  We'll have to make do with the analog TV signal until the weather improves and I can get up there to check everything.  Not looking forward to that job as we have a 45deg pitch and quite high.  Ah well, if I don't post again you'll have a good idea of what happened . . . . .  sealed

I don't see how you can be getting TV3 on analogue. There is no analogue TV transmission anymore in NZ. Maybe you are picking up somebody's Sky modulator? Yours or a neighbour?
