Why does my SD TV (an LG Monitor/Tv model M227WDP) not show any Freeview channels between 85 and 100? The missing channnels DO appear (as SD) on my alternative HD Tvs (a Sony and another LG) elsewhere in the house. All TVs are fed from a distribution system which shows no problem on any TV vis-a-vis signal strength or quality.

I've tried numerous retunes, all to no avail and am puzzled as to why I can't see the missing SD channels on an otherwise perfect SD TV. My local transmitter is Sandy Heath and my Post Code is NN12 7TN.

Any advice or explanation will be appreciated.

GeordieLad: The missing channels are all broadcast on DVB-T2 multiplexes (COM7 & COM8) which your SD TV cannot receive.

Freeview 19 (Yesterday), 62 (True Movies) and 47 (4Seven) have changed their channel numbers. I have spent the afternoon trying to re-install them. Without success. I phoned Sony, who I bought my TV from but they said to contact Freeview for help, which is what I am doing.
Can anyone advise what to do, please.
Thanks

Vik - I receive my Freeview Channels from the Divis Transmitter in Northern Ireland and the channels you speak of haven't changed here! Are you sure that you are on the right UHF channel?

Vik Cooke:

Please put your post code into the Digital UK Coverage Checker at http://www.digitaluk.co.u…ker. That will tell you what channels to tune to. It will also indicate whether your current aerial needs to be changed due to the frequency changes. If it does, contact the Freeview Help pages at Important changes to Freeview TV signals | Freeview

I know you are trying to be helpful, but there are several changes to the transmitters to allow for the 700 MHz clearance (for 5G usage). The changes affect different transmitters in different ways. That yours has not changes does not mean others have not.

Geoffrey Kirkham:
Suggests channel 94 isn't on your set top box.

Although PBS America is an SD channel, it's broadcast in a format which is only decodeable by HD compatible receivers. If you have an SD-only box you won't be able to receive PBS A.

If you have an HD box, check you're in an area covered by a transmitter than carries PBS A and some other reduced-coverage channels such as Freesports and Forces TV. Find out here:
