See below for a full list of transmission masts that will make changes.
When you now rescan, you MUST do a "first time installation" or "factory reset" scan, not an "add channels". Do the procedure you did on September 30th 2009. If you can't recall what this was, please see List of manuals for Freeview retune, or try the generic clear and rescan procedure.

Hello, I live in rented accomodation and my landlord did not bother setting up our aerial with the changeover. I live in Bristol. I think our current aerial was actually set up by a previous tenant and is not on the roof. It's on our balcony.
No,asking my landlord for help won't do a thing, I basically have a slum landlord.
I've an indoor aerial but could never receive any channel on the C49 transmitter.
With the recent change of the BBC channels to the C49 transmitter, I'm not going to receive any BBC channels.
Any recommendations for a good indoor aerial perhaps with wideband?
