Jeremy:

I doubt you'll get a direct reply from Brian, he rarely seems to post on these pages these days.
If you are referring to True Entertainment and Sony Movie Channel+1, Sony have moved these and other True TV channels to local multiplexes. See the posts on the previous page here on July 18th. You'll need to check if you can receive the local multiplex from Belmont.
See also True Entertainment | free and easy for more information about the changes.

Tim Whittle:

According to the Digital UK Coverage Checker you should be getting excellent reception from Belmont transmitter, see About us | Freeview You could even get good reception of Emley Moor signals!

So it is worth checking all your aerial connections and cables. If there are any coaxial plugs/sockets then unplug those and refit them. Check that your aerial has not moved in the recent winds and that the cables are undamaged.
