Whitehawk Hill (Brighton and Hove, England) Full Freeview trans
Tuesday 27 September 2011 3:52PM

I understand the Whitehawk transmitter in Brighton has had engineering works, which may explain why reception in the last week has been poor. In an attempt to improve reception I rescanned my PVR and lost Mux D channels - including Film4 and ITV4. My TV's built-in digital reception matches this loss. The channels had been there in all the years I've lived here yet disappeared overnight, so it can't be the aerial. I've rescanned using this website's guidance but nothing has changed. Is there any hope of these returning? Thanks.

Many thanks for replying, but nothing has changed. Mux D is still unavailable and has been for a week. I find this bizarre, if not also Kafkesque. How can these channels disappear overnight and not return? All the other channels are there (rescanning produced 42 TV and 12 radio channels). Why would engineering works make things worse?

Looking closely at the Whitehawk transmitter's coverage, I notice the yellow area does not actually cover my street (and a large section of the seafront). Could this be due to the tower blocks between it and the transmitter? If so, why was it fine before the last week?

Would really appreciate some guidance as to what to do.
