Who knows !
Sounds like a weak signal on the transponders that the BBC transmit on.

Check/replace your cables as they may have a high attenuation at those particular frequencies. Also try connecting straight into the cable outlet rather than going through any splitters etc.

If that fails then it may just be that the transponder is weak to your location. You could try a signal booster.

It may also be that you have the opposite problem - the signal is too strong at those frequencies and is swamping your tuner. In this case you may need to fit an attenuater.
