Strange position found yesterday.
Signals from Belmont.
Some channels with No Signal message showing, one being Film 4, on Panasonic tv
but all channels received on Panasonic Freeview recorder.
Did a rescan on the tv but with no change.

Thank you Briantist
I did another rescan on the TV earlier and noted Film 4 was back.
I kept an eye on the rescan and even though it went right to the end of the scale it did not pick up anything beyond Ch 60.
Did I read your notes correctly that there is now nothing from Belmont above Ch60 since switchover.
As I say my confusion arose as the Freeview recorder sat below the TV had the progs that were missing on the TV and I feared a fault with it.

I have mainly no signal on a new tv set. both tech and tv engineers have made all attempts to bring in a signal and it is showing up that i am receieving a good signal from emily moor by the engineer but on this site it is a poor reception and must be as i keep getting no signal and breakup on reception in small boxes. I am informed that the emily is poor and belmont has a stronger signal but 65 miles away and still that is poor. please can you enlighten me with the answer for the problem.
