BBC south east news which is 800 is now constantly "poor signal " and is completely unwatchable. Has this changed to another channel number please. I would appreciate any information that may be available. Thank you so much.

Natalie: If you're seeing a version of BBC 1 on 800 or higher it means that the TV has picked it up as a duplicate from another transmitter. Which version of BBC 1 do you get on LCN 1? Please provide a full postcode so that we can see which transmitters cover your location, where you are in relation to them and your predicted signal strength etc. Also, have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV?

PCNE has apparently shifted from sky channel 706 to 791. However as I do not use a sky box to watch this and it is not listed on Lyngsat I need to know the frequency and bit rate which I can find nowhere. Can anyone advise..Am in Kent UK and my wife is Chinese hence the Chinese Language Channel I use a FTA Satellite Box and a selfsat antenna.

Can the Yesterday channel be picked up by a standard Freesat box? ie Bush.Or it is a question of re tuning or a new better quality box?

Yesterday can be received by any Freesat box. The make or model does not matter, they can all receive the channel.

Paul Metcalfe:

To do that we need a full post code so that we can determine which transmitter(s) you are able to receive at your location. There are several possibilities hence the need for a more accurate location than 'North Devon' which covers a large area.

Paul Metcalfe: The Ilfracombe relay is predicted to give good reception at your postcode. It now uses UHF channel 33 for BBC South West and 36 for ITV Westcountry.
