shiela becci: Without knowing your location or transmitter you are receiving from it is difficult to give an exact answer.

Channel 5+1 is carried on the same multiplex as ITV3, QVC and some others, so if you don't get these then you won't get Channel 5+1. If you can, then your receiver needs retuning.
