jude: It appears as though your are limited to only being able to receive a signal from the Pendle Forrest Freeview "light" (PSB only) transmitter located at 4 miles away / 336 degrees, your aerial being vertically polarised, meaning that the elements should be seen mounted up and downwards.

Also, its assumed that you have tried auto-tuning the TV, and that its a digital set and not an older analogue one? which will not work as analogue transmissions are turned off in your area.

jb38, jude: Pendle Forest is not a "Light" transmitter as it broadcasts all the multiplexes.

Dave Lindsay: Yes!! you are indeed quite correct insomuch that it is a full service station, cant quite think what I must have been looking at to have said that, although I strongly suspect its from notes I had scribbled down concerning another persons query.

Also, I dont know whether or not you can get it to work, but jude,s post code isnt accepted by DTG,s predictor and so I was using an alternative in the main Burnley area.

P. Kelleher: The Sky card is not required to receive the majority of programmes with the exception of those dedicated to a Sky package, and so if you get a "no signal" warning then press "Services - 4 - 6" and check if anything is indicated on the signal strength / quality bar, if not, then it could be that your dish has moved slightly out of alignment or that there is a problem with the coax lead from it.

Of course it could even be the box at fault, so disconnect it from the mains for a minute or two before reconnecting it again and letting it go through its usual "searching for listings" procedure.
