For cost-saving reasons, both the BBC and ITV do not currently provide full regional services on certain channels.
ITV only provide four regions for ITV 1 HD: London, Granada, Central West and Meridian Southampton, plus STV West HD is provided by STV in Scotland.
Viewing ITV 1 HD outside these regions, the closest region to this list is provided.
In addition, ITV 1 +1 is also limited to the above regions, with the addition of Yorkshire and ITV Wales. Again, you may find you have a different region on Freeview 33 for ITV 1 +1 than for Freeview 3, ITV 1.
On Freesat, or fSfS without a card, Yorkshire and ITV Wales are not on ITV1+1, and an alternative region is provided.
These regions are now clearly indicated on the site:
The BBC currently provides, on Freesat HD and Freeview HD a single national BBC One HD service that has no regional news and no opt-outs in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
ITV 1 Southampton does not exist free to view on freesat or freeview. ITV1 Dover (South East does however and is relayed to those viewers in the Sandy Heath area. ITV 1 does not give viewers the closest ITV 1 region otherwise we would have ITV1 London.
I live 8 miles north of Norwich, so Tacolneston is my only option.
(I was checking reception in Cambridge for a friend when I made the first post so it picked Cambridge in error)
So am I the only one in Tacolneston region with a lip-sync error on ITV1 HD? I checked on my Panasonic Freeview HD tv and it was the same lip-sync error as the Humax.
Tim, that explains why I assumed you were in the Sandy Heath area. Although my locations shows as Peterborough I am actually in Spalding, 16 miles north of there. If I put my actual postcode into this site it tells me that I cannot receive any signal from Sandy Heath it's "out of sight", which is very strange as lots of folk here use it and the "Digital UK site says we get a very good signal.
Sorry I can't help with your problem re. TacolnestonITV HD, seems strange if the other HD channels are fine. Next time I go to my cousin in Mattishall, I will take my Humax and load Tacolneston and see what happens.
