janet greenow: The channels is only in the evening.

Have you retuned? The only reason you may not have it (and all the other commercial multiplex channels) would be if you are using the Bromsgrove transmitter when you will get it (and the other 50 channels) from 28 Sep 11.

I (think) I use the Belmont transmitter, I had great FV until about June 2011, Al Jazz, Russian news, Food etc etc, Then there was a retune and most of it disappeared. Then in November another retune, the channels came back into the list but there's not enough power to watch them. It's so frustrating you get no information from anywhere (while the FV balloons ad adds insult to injury). Do I need to turn the aerial? Or will FV eventually get its act together and make these channels available? Thanks

John Ledbury: Need to check that you have the correct aerial(wideband) & is pointing in the right direction,i.e approx. north west where you are.(for belmont).Try a first time installation(start from scratch),see if that helps.

Des Collier: thanks for yours. I had a new aerial 3 or 4 years ago when I first got FV, (and FV worked wonderfully - it's only after all these retunes that everything went wrong, can't be the aerial at fault) no idea what group aerial is in or how to check. Just done a default something and a manual tune. Manual tune was useless, cut out ost everything. Re-did automatic tune and got back Sky News, Food etc. I get Food & SkyN signals from E Midlands as channels 49 and 82, 1,2,3,4 etc from Cambs&Beds and some stuff from E Yorks on channels 800+. I'm trying to work out whether to turn the aerial to E Mids which seems to have more power and more stations. And if I turn it, is FV going to mess it all up again in a few months' time?

john ledbury: sounds like you need to get a proper qualified installer in again,to help sort your problems out i.e start from scratch totally,to sort it once & for all.possibly will be more retunes in the future if or when any more services come on.

john ledbury: I was reading your back postings concerning the problems you are having with reception from Belmont / Waltham etc, and so being located in the Stamford area which is roughly the same distance (+5 mls) from Belmont as yourself I decided to carry out a signal check from both stations involved, the results being that all six multiplexes from Belmont were being received with a stable signal with only about a 5% variation in strength between each of them, and with Waltham being very similar across all channels.

Yesterday I managed to carry out another test whilst at a location on the same bearing as you are from Waltham but at roughly 6 miles before your suspected location, (Gorefild side of Wisbech?) the results being 97% strength / 100% quality being indicated on a Panasonic TV, and with 85% / 100% respectively shown on a Humax 9200 box using the same aerial, the slightly lower indication on the Humax being quite expected as their strength indicators are inclined to be more realistic.

By the way, this was the signal received straight from an 18 element side wall mounted Yagi @ approx 20 feet from the ground, no boosters involved!

This being the case I really feel that if there are no dastardly obstructions between where I was (Moulton Eaugate area) and wherever you might be (and observations in your direction did not show anything) then I see no reason why Waltham should be radically different in your area, the main thing to remember being that auto-tuning equipment (albeit convenient) is not advisable in most East of England areas unless located within about 20 miles of a main transmitter, as its just inviting channels from more than one station to be picked up.

I would suggest that you face your aerial towards Waltham (approx 280 degrees) and after having "factory reset" your TV or box "manually" tune in the channels used by Waltham, do not be tempted to use the auto-tune facility, as I feel that's where you are going wrong.

Waltham's channels: Ch61 (BBC) - Ch54 (ITV) - Ch29 (ITV3 etc) - Ch56 (ArqA / Pick TV, Sky news etc) - Ch57 (ArqB / Russia today, Film4 etc)
