I have a communal aerial that has had all channels breaking up/pixels. An engineer called today and changed components on the main aerial that should have fixed this issue but it didn't. He checked my in house aerial connector in the wall and said I'm receiving the signal from Crystal Palace when it should be Poplar and there is interference from buildings. How can I tune to the Poplar receiver bypassing the Crystal Palace signals?

Lesley Horner: If your TV has a manual tuning function you can use it to manually tune in the signals broadcast from the Poplar relay on UHF channels 39/45/42.

StevensOnln1: Thank you, but it seems I can only add one of those numbers and not all three for some reason.

The Uaer Manual for your television will tell you how to add any new multilexes. It will be able to add all the available multiplexes.

Lesley Horner:

If you are still having problems adding multiplexes, try unplugging the aerial and doing an automatic tune whilst it's unplugged, this will clear ALL previous tuning. You should then be able to add any multiplexes you wish.

You put your full post code and house number/name into the Digital UK Coverage Checker at Digital UK - Coverage checker and select the detailed view. That will show you detai;ls of all the transmitters receivable at that location together with the compass direction and all the channels used for the range of multiplexes carrying the TV programmes.

Or click on the "digitaluk trade" link at the bottom of your post. For all 6 available muxes it shows Dover 6km away at 70 and you'll need a wideband aerial to get them all as there's several retune events coming, the first on 22nd August.

Your information is out of date eg - Al Jazeera HD, no longer exists. You should put the date that you last updated the information on each channel list you publish. Then at least people would know that the information might be out of date, instead of thinking that they ned to retune.
