Hi, purchased HD TV last month but no HD channels available so far here in Gilesgate, Durham, DH1 1DH. I assume we use Pontop Pike (which should be OK for HD?) but perhaps not accessing it directly - do you have any suggestions? All other Freeview channels are fine. Thanks, Nick

Hi I checked the aerial - horizontal so should be OK. Manual tuning of channel 63 - no signal. I checked all receivable channels and came up with 48,53,55,59,62,65.
I wonder if the problem is with the aerial itself - it was replaced about 8 years ago; also compared with others nearby it seems to point slightly more to the west as if it is more directed to Burnhope than Pontop Pike, both of which are visible from here - Burnhope completely, and the top red light of Pontop can be seen at night... is it just a matter of more precise positioning?
