My TV has built in Freeview tuner. Iam in Seaford Sussex and expect to use the new Newhaven transmitter. However, BBC1 shows BBC1 South not BBc 1 SE which I used to get on analogue.
My location has the same line of sight for Newhaven and Brighton Whitehawk, which makes me wonder if Autotune has connected my station 1 to Whitehawk, which shows BBC 1 South.
Advise me, please.

I have a prob with HD from Newhaven on Ch 40.
I use manual tune, because on auto tune the tv puts BBC1 0n ch 24 (Rowridge?) showing South news rather than SE.
When I try to select Ch 40 the TV shows "No signal", and it's the same from Ch 51HD from Whitehawk.
I have a good new wideband aerial (For me, Newhaven, Whitehawk and Rowridge are pretty much on the same line of sight), so my question is, is there something strange about the transmitter, or does my TV not have the right features?
My main Tv is an LG, 3 years old, with built in Freesat. HD comes in Ok on Freesat , though sometimes rather noisy.
Kind regards!
