Chesterfield (Derbyshire, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Thursday 6 February 2020 12:09AM
Dronfield

As of 5/2/2020 we seem to have lost all ITV, Channel 4 & Channel 5 channels from Chesterfield Freeview transmission in post code S18 7WF with roof aerials.

Will this be rectified or is it permanent?

Thanks for your reply.
Yes we have BBC & Pick etc but no ITV Channel 5 etc. We did see the earlier notifications and so did a full re-tune and a factory settings restart many times on each TV and Video Recorder. Since they are all in the same state, I contacted the Freeview helpline, and after a few tests they are sending someone out next week to see what is causing the problem? We are in a week signal area so I am speculating that any change in the signal strength may be the problem, or perhaps the amplifier or aerial type?

I have bypassed the amplifier and connected the aerial directly to a single TV and performed a factory reset.
Still no ITV etc channels? All the others on C26, C29, C43 & C46 are showing strong signal & quality on the manual re-tune pages. C23 is showing no signal at all.

Hello Chris - Thanks for this. Up until about 1pm today the direct to aerial TV was without ITV etc. It is set to auto update for everything. Then after 1pm ITV etc were present and after reconnecting the
Amplifier/Distributer they were present on all TVs and videos. I have checked which Channels have strong Signals and Quality and these are C29, C31, C37, C40, C43, and C46. I hope that the change of fortune is permanent and not dependent on the climatic conditions of our current storm!

Hello,
I would appreciate you advice.
I am thinking of putting the security cameras on the in house TV distribution system which already carries the Freeview Channels from the Chesterfield transmitter. What channel number do you suggest I set the input to in order to avoid any interference.
Thanks for your help.

I don't seem to be able to get Sony Movie Classic or any other Sony Movie channels on Freeview from the Chesterfield transmitter. Is this a known problem?
