Jennifer Mather : A quick look on Google Maps suggests that the aerials in your location are receiving from Beacon Hill (not Budleigh Salterton or Stockland Hill).
Try retuning, but without the aerial plugged in initially - the scan needs to get about one third of the way across - then plug the aerial in. This should capture the Beacon Hill signals and "miss" the Stockland Hill signals which appear to be causing the problem.
If your TV tunes too quickly for the aerial trick, you'll need to manually tune for the Beacon Hill channels (42, 45, 51, 53, 57 & 60).
