Belmont (Lincolnshire, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Wednesday 24 August 2011 10:25PM

Hi Brian, We live at LN1 2BP, 8 miles W of Lincoln, and our antenna points to Belmont. We have 3 HD ready TVs, 2 of which are fitted with non-HD PVRs. All these decoders tune in BBC1 Lincolnshire on channel 1. The 3rd TV has a new Humax HD PVR. This PVR tunes in East Midlands BBC1 on channel 1, but has BBC1 Lincolnshire on channel 847. Is it simply that I'm receiving BBCA from say Waltham on an antenna sidelobe at about the same level as Belmont, and it just happens that the Humax HD detects the East Midlands signal as larger, or is it due to the fact thast the Humax is the only HD decoder?
