I'm located at DE11 7QU and tuned to the Waltham transmitter. All other HD and SD channels are being receved ok. But Bonanzabonanza and Local TV test both brak up some days and nothing is being receved from the new HD chanlles C31 and C37.
Are the new HD channels working or ham I out of range?

Thanks for the comments everyone Re: the Waltham transmitter retune on Feb 7th.
Both my tv and HDR show that there are tuned to 754MHz when I select digital channels that don't work.
(so that's COM8, on UHF channel 56 (754MHz) on Waltham).
So My TV indicates a signal strength changing between 7 and 30 % with a signal quality between 62 to 78 %.
and the picture is ether bloke or blanc or ok foe say 4 seconds Just not watchable.
I have an active Arial splitter which I have swopped for an other with no change to the picture problem.
All other multiplex channels are ok with a singe strength around 98% and quality 100%.
(except the multiplex charring nots TV that has signal strength around 60% and quality 0% that blank all the time). So could it be that my equipment is attenuating 754MHz.
I'm at DE11 7QU. Mu brother is in Tucbrey thither away from the transmitter with no problems.
