I am unable to manually search and save Channel 50 from the Midhust transmitter and cannot receive ITV4. Channels 55, 61, 62, and 59 are fine. I was told that the midhurst transmitter would transmit on full power yesterday. I have tried channels 28 and 49 without success

Robin Jenner: Where abouts are you?

There are a few areas where Midhurst's Commercial channels may be not longer receiveable. See for discussion of one such example location:

I can't find ITV4 since the switchover. What channel should I find it on for NW7 3PH?

I get my signal from the Portslade transmitter which is bounced from Whitehawk and which I could walk to in about ten minutes yet we get a paltry 20 programs since changeover. 2 are evening only 2 are for children, one is for gays and another for parnerships.
Is there any hope of us getting more programs including ITV 3 & 4.
After all the hype preceeding the change the only useful thing is that we gained channel 5 which was a no-no previously.
Also I rate teletext's replacement very poor.

Edmund Janes: No, the Commercial broadcasters don't wish to pay for the installation and upkeep of transmitter equipment at Portslade and over 1,000 other similar small sites. Unlike the broadcasters that do transmit from Portslade, they have no "Public Service" obligation.

See here for a further explanation:

Will there ever be more services on the Freeview Light transmitters? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice

A few houses in Graham Close have aerials on Rowridge which will give you the full service. It carries BBC South, unlike Portslade, as a relay of Whitehawk, which now carries BBC South East.

Assuming that you can receive from Rowridge, you could either go for the full service from it or combine with your existing aerial so as to watch BBC South East. Or you may be able to pick up directly from Whitehawk; its post-switchover power is greater than the equivalent former analogue power. The only thing that concerns me about Whitehawk is that the prediction for one of the Commercial channels gets worse in October of this year and I can't see why. I assume that another transmitter somewhere will be changing channel, but can't work out which one.

How feasible these options are will be subject to relevant tests by an installer on-site. You're certainly not in a good area for these transmitters, so you will probably need more of a substantial aerial.

Dave Lindsay: Mux D3+4 at Midhurst changes from C61 to C56 in October 2012. This will be the reasont for the prediction of possible interference to reception from Whitehawk Hill.

KMJ,Derby: Thanks. Is it just me or would it not be useful for Digital UK Tradeview to convey this information? Surely the degree to which the co-channel transmitter actually interferes depends on the direction and polarisation of the aerial, as well as its rejection characteristics, particularly in the direction of the interfering transmitter.

Dave Lindsay: This is true, despite a reduction in the prediction for reliable reception it is quite likely that the viewer might see no change whatsoever if the aerial position coincides with the percentage shown as being able to receive the service, although I am not sure how tropospheric ducting is accounted for in the predictions. In my own postcode area the prediction for Waltham reduces on C29 when Bilsdale switches, and likewise the prediction for C56 and C58 goes down when Sudbury adopts these frequencies in June. I can say that from past experience Sudbury is usually the first out of area signal that appears when high pressure is present, aided no doubt by the fact that Sudbury is in a similar direction to Waltham from here. If the aerial is positioned in a null for the interfering signal, the reception of the desired signal could well be trouble free, finding the correct position can be very time consuming, especially if the unwanted signal is intermittent or fluctuating! As you say, different aerial types give differing results, an experienced installer would normally select the aerial with the best characteristics for the reception conditions.
