Another angry customer here. Have lost 94 and tried all recommendations except getting a new aerial. Why break it when it didn't need fixing.

Stuart Dangerfield: You will have been receiving those channels from Crystal Palace, they are not carried on any relays in London. The COM7 & COM8 multiplexes changed frequency at Crystal Palace several weeks ago and will no longer be easily receivable if you have a Group A aerial. If you don't have satellite or cable you may be eligible to have a replacement wideband aerial fitted free of charge, which can be arranged by contacting the Freeview Advice Line (see link below).

Bob Thacker: PSB America is on the COM8 multiplex which changed frequency at Sutton Coldfield earlier this year. Try manual tuning on UHF channel 56, if that doesn't restore it and you don't have satellite or cable you may be eligible to have a replacement wideband aerial fitted free of charge, which can be arranged by contacting the Freeview Advice Line (see link below).

Dave: You are predicted to have good coverage of the COM8 multiplex (which carries PBS America) from the Belmont transmitter. You need a TV/PVR/set top box which is able to receive HD channels.
