GFull technical details of Freeview

I have now I think got back to where I was via manual scanning (and it has stopped nagging me). Trying to sort this has left me thinking :
Is your data correct?
Digital UK Coverage checker has Sedbergh with Ch40, 43 and 46, all with good (green) quality.
Freeview has stations SD : BBC1,2,3,4, ITV ITV2, 4, 5 and a few others
HD : BBC1, 2, ITV, 4HD
Whereas you have :
Ch46 : 1 BBC One North West, 2 BBC Two England, 7 BBC Three, 9 BBC Four, 70 CBBC Channel, 71 CBeebies, 80 BBC News, 81 BBC Parliament, 301 BBC Red Button 1, plus 12 others
Ch 43 : 101 BBC One HD (England no regional news), 102 BBC Two HD (England), 103 ITV HD (ITV Granada), 104 Channel 4 HD North ads, 303 BBC Red Button HD, plus 1 others
Ch40 : 3 ITV (Border), 4 Channel 4 North ads, 5 Channel 5 The North ads, 6 ITV 2, 13 Channel 4+1 North ads, 14 More 4, 15 Film 4, 28 E4, 33 ITV +1 (Yorkshire Emley Moor),
Your list seems to agree with Digital UK but the Freeview list agrees with what I get. All Ch40 is missing. Is Sedbergh really broadcasting it but not at my range or in my direction? Your coverage map doesn't actually reach me, is that the clue?
It seems very difficult to get to the bottom of all this, is the real information reserved for the trade?

The last few days each time I switch Panasonic TV on get "New channels found etc.". I let go through the tuning process, can't spot any differences but next switch on goes through it again. Tonight did a manual update which started by saying channels would be lost. Can now only get Ch46 stations. I am on Sedbergh transmitter (only one that has ever worked for me although LA2 8QZ search says Kendal) so think I should also get 40 and 43. Has Sedbergh, my TV or my aerial got a problem. DAB radio works on same aerial OK.
