Tim: Click on Digital UK trade to the right of your post - you'll see that you only get the 6 multiplexes available from the 80 full Freeview transmitters, and not com7 from its 30 transmitters.

Freeview HD boxes should support internet connectivity, so if you really want MotorsTV connect it to the internet and go to channel 240. If not, at least you now have HD channels and a somewhat futureproof box!

yvonne warriner: Have you as yet carried out a retune on your TV? as ITVBe is transmitted on the same Multiplex as used by ITV3 (10) / QVC (16) etc.

B M Laurence: In order to determine if the newly installed mast is connected in any way with 4G transmissions or not, you should contact the undermentioned number, as those people have up to date information on 4G installations.

That said, did you receive a "free" 4G filter thought the post? as AT800 sends them out to any address that's liable to be affected by a 4G transmission.

Its best to have this matter cleared up before taking any other action, as the timing of the difficulty you are experiencing might purely be coincidental.

Free from "land line" number : 0808 13 13 800 - Available from: 08.00 -1800 Monday to Saturday.
