Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Nottingham transmitter area
Jonathan, Sophie: At those postcodes it doesn't look like you can receive signals from Nottingham. It's more likely to be Waltham. The aerial's rods would be going up-and-down for Nottingham and side-to-side for Waltham.
The multiplex that carries ITV1 and C4 has moved from C23 to C31 at Waltham. This happened yesterday morning. There are reports that Mux 2 is not working properly in its new location for some viewers.
I do note that the bearing from your postcodes to Waltham is nearly the same as that to Sandy Heath - it's just a bit further, and over the horizon. It's possible that the power boosts at Sandy Heath are adding enough extra noise to overload the amplifier or tuner, in the right weather conditions. If you have an amplifier/booster, try it without.
Jonathan: The prediction for you shows no usable service on multiplex 1, 2, and A, and poor service on multiplex B, until Waltham switches over in August. There is no prediction for Mux A until October. Belmont is actually a better option for all multiplexes before and after switchover, but you will get the Lincolnshire/Yorkshire news.

I'm in the centre of Nottingham and just done a retune - the whole Multiplex with ITV1 and Channel 4 is missing.
Read over some of the advice, tried with and without tv internal booster and external booster and have also just tried the factory reset on the tv.
I'm in the NG1 postcode and the arial equipment and cables are all uptodate and the TV is't one listed on the issues page.
If this is a widespread issue accross a lot of nottingham doesn't someone have a responsablity to return the service to an acceptable level?

@ Mike - yes you're probably right that it's Waltham rather than Nottingham.
But: "no usable service on multiplex 1, 2, and A, and poor service on multiplex B, until Waltham switches over in August. There is no prediction for Mux A until October."
Gaaahhh! Belmont reception is rubbish where we are. We're right on the edge. So basically that means no watchable ITV channels until August at the earliest?
