From Wikipedia: The ITV1 brand was introduced by Carlton and Granada in 2001, alongside the regional identities of their eleven regional companies. However in line with other terrestrial channels, ITV1's audience share has fallen in the era of multi-channel television. ITV existed in a region-heavy form from its inception to the 2000s, although the switch was gradual. - link icon read more about ITV 1 (SD) on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

A block of channels suddenly disappeared a week ago- including ITV1,2, Ch4, Ch5 ....all on the same multiplex I think. What is the solution, short of an expensive aerial change. I have tried retuning both the recorder tuner and the tv tuner to no avail.

Hi there, in the last two weeks we have lost the signal to get most ITV channels. This is true on more than one antenna. We have checked all cables and they seem fine. We have retuned our humax several times with no change. We have tried different tuners with the same result. We are using the pondtop pike transmitter.

Any advice at this stage would be greatly appreciated

Mike Knowles: And everyone else. I spoke to who said that transmitter work will probably be affecting digital channels in the weeks before the digital switchover in April. We have lost all channels except sometimes BBC4, but even that disappeared over the last 2 days. This has been going on since 20 Feb here in SW13. I do not know what can be done, if anything, other than get the transmitter engineers to change something. Gerard

Downham Market


We live in Downham Market (Norfolk) - PE38 9NX which we assume connects via the Kings Lynn Transmitter.

How do I configure my Freeview box to receive ITV Anglia ?

We currently receive ITV North which means most of the News we get is Sheffield focused and not Norwich / East Anglia focused.

Simon Darlington: If your aerial is directed to King's Lynn transmitter it will be vertical. All other transmitters that you can pick up at your location are horizontal.

King's Lynn transmitter is situated in the grounds of the Royal Estate at Sandringham. If your aerial does not point to it and if it isn't vertical then good reception may not be available to you.

You are picking up Yorkshire from Belmont in Lincolnshire. This uses low channels, so run the automatic tuning scan with the aerial unplugged for the first 30% and unplug again at 61% so as to scan for King's Lynn and avoid others.

Once completed, go to BBC One bring up the signal strength screen and it should be tuned to UHF channel 49 for King's Lynn. Do likewise for ITV1 and it should be tuned to C46 for KL.
