leslie rainer: UKTV are not going to put their channels on Freesat, they are subscription services on satellite. If you want to watch Dave, Really, Drama and Yesterday for free, Freeview is the only option.

Sophie Oban: Film4 has been added to PSB2 and the service on ArqB carries an instruction to re-tune as it is shortly to be withdrawn from that mux. If your boxes have an automatic scanning facility it could be that they have responded to the re-tune command which would explain your findings.

Spencerbeck, Ormesby, Normanby areas lost of multiple channels on channel 59 shows strong signal but signal quality is 0 when doing a transmitter test in set on a new LG tv.

Same problems on previous tv problems started just over a month ago channels fine upto this point.

Asked friends and family who live across the local area all getting the same picture problems.

Why is there no way to report a fault with a transmitter it's clear there is a fault with pontop pike but no way of repoerting this .

The item sent to you by @800 is a filter and not a booster. Its job is to remove any 4G signals from your system so it does not interfere with your TV viewing.

I have now I think got back to where I was via manual scanning (and it has stopped nagging me). Trying to sort this has left me thinking :

Is your data correct?

Digital UK Coverage checker has Sedbergh with Ch40, 43 and 46, all with good (green) quality.

Freeview has stations SD : BBC1,2,3,4, ITV ITV2, 4, 5 and a few others
HD : BBC1, 2, ITV, 4HD
Whereas you have :
Ch46 : 1 BBC One North West, 2 BBC Two England, 7 BBC Three, 9 BBC Four, 70 CBBC Channel, 71 CBeebies, 80 BBC News, 81 BBC Parliament, 301 BBC Red Button 1, plus 12 others
Ch 43 : 101 BBC One HD (England no regional news), 102 BBC Two HD (England), 103 ITV HD (ITV Granada), 104 Channel 4 HD North ads, 303 BBC Red Button HD, plus 1 others
Ch40 : 3 ITV (Border), 4 Channel 4 North ads, 5 Channel 5 The North ads, 6 ITV 2, 13 Channel 4+1 North ads, 14 More 4, 15 Film 4, 28 E4, 33 ITV +1 (Yorkshire Emley Moor),

Your list seems to agree with Digital UK but the Freeview list agrees with what I get. All Ch40 is missing. Is Sedbergh really broadcasting it but not at my range or in my direction? Your coverage map doesn't actually reach me, is that the clue?

It seems very difficult to get to the bottom of all this, is the real information reserved for the trade?

Hi,after several comments regarding channel coverage in the Dolgellau area, ,still awaiting a response for a full allocation of channels. Will this ever happen ?.
I believe an upgrade to the relay equipment is required ?.
Awaiting any response, thanking you kindly.
Regards.
