nichola maris: Reception of Sheffield live (8) is entirely dependent on your location, (post code required to check) as the low powered signal from the Sheffield transmitter is beamed out in an Easterly / to S/S Easterly direction.

If your TV or box has a "manual tuning" facility try scanning C55, this being the multiplex channel number that the programme is transmitted on.

jayne froggatt : The coverage map for Sheffields local (LS) Multiplex shows Wincobank as being outside the coverage area for this transmitter, the signal from same "in your direction" not quite reaching the Newhall area let alone Wincobank.

That said, coverage maps are not by any means 100% accurate, likewise can only really be used for reference purposes, therefore, if your TV or box offers a "manual" tuning facility? enter Sheffield's local Mux C55 (746.0 Mhz) into the box but pause at this point, (i.e: do "not" press search or scan) because if any trace of a signal is being received nomatter how low, the strength / quality level will be seen on the indicator bars.

It should though be appreciated, that Sheffield's LS Mux C55 is an extremely low powered transmitter which is beamed to cover the main and Southern areas of Sheffield, with a very limited spillage to the Northern areas of the city, such as you happen to reside in.

By the way, do you have your own aerial? or are you connected into a communal distribution system?

The other point being, guide number 81 cannot be used for reference purposes, as its broadcast on the COM7 transmitter which is twice the power of the LS Mux.

Further advice dependant on feedback.

jb38: Could you post a link to the coverage map for Sheffield's LS Mux C55, please?

I've been trying to find Sheffield Live on Ch8, as it says on their website, but cannot tune into it from home, family, or friends addresses. (Owlthorpe, Gleadless, Attercliffe and Highfield areas)

Kit : The coverage requested can be seen on the undermentioned link, clicking LSV in the list of multiplex names on the left hand side revealing the coverage area in green, blowing the picture up slightly for more detail

Which Freeview channels does the Sheffield transmitter broadcast?

However, whether or not reception of this channel can be expected in these areas is better served by using DUK's reception predictor, entering a post code in the "coverage checker" box applicable to a household in each of the areas mentioned, remembering to check the box marked "detailed view".

If Sheffield is not seen in the list of transmitters, then its not considered as being the "station" that covers the area, if though it is seen, but L-SFD is not listed on the right hand side of the various multiplexes used by each station, then Sheffield's local multiplex (Mux55) is not expected to be receivable in the area.
