I'm not personally familiar with the Humax Fox T2 PVR but a "standard fix" that works on most devices is first try clearing existing tuning by unplugging the aerial and doing an automatic scan.
Then plug the aerial back in and do a manual tune of all the UHF channels used by Bilsdale - currently 26, 29, 23, 43, 46, 40, 31 & 37 + 24 for the Local mux. Note a major retune will be required later this year. Put your postcode into Digital UK - Coverage checker to get predicted reception at your location.

It depends on where you are!! Even then you'll need to find someone who knows. You could try asking neighbours and any one else in your area to see who they've used.

As previously stated many, many times, True Entertainment has been mioved to the local multiplexes. As you have not given a full post code, only co-ordinates, we cannot tell you whether the transmitter you use has any local multiplexes.

Going by the links in your post, the one to digitaluk, you can receive a number of transmitters at your location. Best reception is from Carmel which doesn't have a local mux. There's a local mux at Kilvey Hill, but reception of all muxes from there is far from brilliant. HTH.

Barry:

Pendle Forest is a relay of Winter Hill where there is engineering work this week, so I guess that there may be possible service interruptions. Are you still having no signal?
There is also the possibility that current weather conditions which are affecting radio tropospheric propagation may cause interference and so affect people's reception.
