As you still haven't provided that full postcode as mentioned in reply to your December post, we can't check the predicted reception in your locale. As you mentioned you hadn't received the HD channels before, you could be in a marginal area, or have a fault on your aerial system.
Have you checked your aerial position as suggested? How old is the aerial installation?
Do you have any other equipment connected or aerial amplifiers/distribution amps/splitters or DVRs etc.?
Check you are tuned to the correct UHF channels for North Bovey - C46, C43 & C39.
Have you checked all the connections behind your TV etc?
When did this problem start - had you had any new electrical/electronic equipment around that time?
