Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Hannington transmitter area
I live in Reading and receive Freeview from Hannington. I've just realised that Freeview channel 1, which has always been BBC 1 South is now showing BBC London. After a diligent search of the channels, I discovered BBC 1 South hiding amongst a load of radio channels at channel 800.
I'm not sure if this is a technical glitch or a policy change. If the latter, I cannot say I've seen any publicity about it, and it doesn't seem particularly sensible. I don't think of either Hannington or Reading being in London. If it is a glitch, is there anything I can do to sort it out.
Ps. If it helps, ITV on chsnnel 3 is still showing Meridien, rather than whatever the London equicalent is.

Chris Wood: Your TV (or set top box) has retuned and picked up BBC1 London from Crystal Palace before also finding BBC1 South from Hannington (Hannington uses higher frequencies than Crystal Palace and would therefore be found first on a retune if both are receivable). If you do a manual tune on UHF C39 from your TV's menu it should restore BBC1 South to position 1 on the program guide.

I can receive both Hannington and Crystal Palace signals (both approximately the same strength) and have the 2 aerials terminating into a diplexor with the Crystal Palace going into the "A" group input (channels 21-33) and Hannington going into the "E" group input (channels 39-68). Everything was fine until BBC4 HD recently moved frequency. Now BBC4 HD is breaking up due to very low signal. I realised that their new frequency is on channels 34 and 35 which is between the channel inputs of my diplexor and hence this is attenuating the signal on this frequency. I then replaced the diplexor with a Labgear 2 way splitter that is wide band and I can now get BBC4 HD again on full signal. Unfortunately this has created further problems as I can no longer get Freeview channels 7 and 8 (London Live and That's Hampshire) which I was getting with reasonable signal. There is a large overlap on the frequencies used by the Hannington and Crystal Palace stations. For example Crystal Palace uses channel 33 but Hannington uses channel 32 and also channel 29 I believe for That's Thames Valley. Any advice in resolving this problem would be appreciated

Roger Scott: This might be a tricky one to solve!. I can only assume that you were originally receiving BBC4HD from Crystal Palace COM7 (Ch.33) as COM7 on Hannington is on Ch.32 and your Hannington Aerial would be in the wrong diplexer input to get that signal without severe attenuation. BBC4HD moving to COM8 (Ch.35 Crystal Palace) or Ch.34 Hannington possibly won't have been helped by the slightly lower power used for COM8.
My understanding for Hannington is that the Local TV Mux aimed at Basingstoke is on Ch.51 whereas there is one aimed at Reading on Ch.29. I can again only assume you were getting the Basingstoke one. The Crystal Place local Mux is on Ch.29, and you got both of these because of your location and aerial directions.
Now that you are using a splitter instead of a diplexer, there could be some conflict with the Ch.29 muxes which stops you getting London Live, but there ought not be be an issue with That's Hampshire on the Ch.51 mux. However, Local muxes are on a much lower power compared to the main ones. Diplexers don't usually have much insertion loss, whereas a splitter can have quite a lot depending on type and this could reduce the signal strength sufficiently. There are types with low insertion loss which may not be what you have, but I would firstly try to see exactly what you can currently receive on each aerial plugged directly into the set without a diplexer or splitter to check you can get what you'd expect, you'll then have an idea whether the insertion loss from the splitter is the primary problem.
