jacky law: The most likely reason is that you had a dodgy "fly lead" on the box that doesn't work properly. I would suggest you try changing this aerial lead.

mr john w. powell: Please do this - My Freeview box has no EPG, is blank on FIVE, ITV3, ITV4, ITV2+1, has no sound or the channel line up is wrong | - independent free digital TV advice - to restore the channel. It has moved multiplexes and you need to do a "first time" tune on your box or TV set.

I live in West Yorkshire with digital signals from a booster about a mile away boosting the Emley Moor transmissions. On switch over everything was fine except my EPG is 60 minutes ahead. For example it says that corrie is on at 6.30pm when in fact it is 7.30pm. What can I do? Thanks in anticipation

I am in Bulgaria and had a 1m dish erected by locals and I get some of the free channels using a sky box. Many free channels are not available and I think they are probably not repeated on whatever satellite I have been pointed at.
What should I ideally be able to receive so that I know what to aim for?

Freeview since power upgrade last night on the Wrekin transmitter.

ITV4 is now back, but not 100% stable, with some drop outs. Dave, sadly and annoyingly, still shows no signal at all. I am at SY13 2BT and have a high gain and booster in the loft roof space of a bungalow. Before all the change overs both Dave and ITV4 were received with no issues. The problem is most definitely NOT one of too strong a signal ;)I am undecided whether to try a chimney mounted aerial or try pointing the loft aerial at one of the other two transmitters that we might be able to receive. Sod's Law states that on the signal maps our place seems smack in the middle of a tiny bad signal region for all the transmitters :( Moving is not an option though ;) Apart from should I just put a dish up and go for Freesat, my question is will a cheap Ebay signal strength meter be sufficient for a DIY aerial re-orientation?

This is a great resource, thank you Briantist!

Chris Wilson: The reception predictor indicates the Wrekin (@ 25Km / 166degrees) as being your worst option for reception, as excepting HD, the remainder is a combination of variable and poor right across the board, although predictors cannot fully cater for any local obstructions that may be in evidence, so an element of inaccuracy always exists with these forecasts.

However Sutton Coldfield (@ 63Km / 120 degrees) and Winter Hill (@ 83Km / 6 degrees) both indicate good reception on about an even footing, so I would try a test on both these stations.

I would carry out the test by simply by turning your loft aerial around, that is so long as its not facing into a water tank on any of the two bearings mentioned, and I would then blank out anything stored by carrying out a scan without the aerial connected, then after re- connecting "manually" enter Winter Hills BBC1 Mux Ch on 62, storing anything received, then do the same again but on ITV Mux Ch59, these two multiplexes at least giving an idea of the reception strength, as if they appeared to be OK you could manually enter the remainder, these being HD on Mux Ch54 (only if HD TV used) other channels being Ch58 - Ch61 - Ch55.

If not though, blank anything stored then use the same procedure for Sutton Coldfield, BBC1 Mux Ch43 - ITV Mux Ch46, the remainder HD Mux Ch40 - Ch42 - Ch45 - Ch39.
