Hi, I've tried all the fixes mentioned above, including clearing all channels and re-scanning, but my problem is, the EPG will not populate fully. It will show the next two days or so on all channels, but for the full seven days it either gets the BBC multiplex or the ITV one, but not both. Signal strength is a fairly consistent 76%, quality 100%, I'm near Winter Hill and scanning on 62, I can get a similar signal strength on other nearby scans, but the problem still persists. This only started recently, and I now have some Wales channels I didn't have before, so I assume the this is connected? I have an outside aerial mounted at garage height (I have no real access to anything higher), and an in-line aerial booster, and this has worked perfectly until a couple of weeks or so ago. Help please... Do I need a bigger, better aerial, and if so what type, I am confused by all the differences? Thank you :-) .

Thanks for the reply and link. That tells me why it happened, but not how to counter it? I don't mind the extra channels, and if I retune to one transmitter as described, as I understand it the automatic retune will only take me back to where I started anyway. All I really want is to have the full seven day EPG on all multiplexes - that's the source of my problem. Would some sort of specific aerial do it?

Sorry about that, I'm at PR25 1BU. I have very limited knowledge, only what I've gleaned from reading posts on here, and I just wondered whether there was an aerial that would only pick up Winter Hill and avoid what appears to be the conflict with the Welsh transmitter - I'm assuming this is what's causing the EPG to not populate fuly?
