hugh reddox: The local TV services can only be watched in the locations they are broadcast to.

STV Glasgow can be see on the Local television on Freeview | - 12 years of independent, free digital TV advice page. It looks like this

Until two days ago, I was able to receive many channels, but the BBC ones were very poor. However, now the BBC channels are working well, but the rest of the channels are just pixilations.
Please can you offer advice?

Del Hintze: Check that the receiver is tuned to the correct transmitter (the one that the aerial faces) for each multiplex signal as one possible explanation for what you're experiencing is that, for example, you were tuned to the wrong transmitter for BBC (when it was working poorly) and now you're on the right one (but the wrong one for other services.

A look on Streetview, most aerials are pointing to Tunbridge Wells (aerials vertical at just clockwise of east) so a view of signal strength screen whilst on the following should indicate where you're actually receiving from. If your aerial is pointing to Tunbridge Wells then you should see:

BBC One = C52
ITV = C49
BBC One HD = C47
ITV3 = C42
Pick = C44
4music = C41

Some aerials point to Crystal Palace, so if that's you then please say. Indeed, if you say where your aerial is pointing then guidance may be offered as to what you should be tuned to. If your aerial does face TW and you discover that you're tuned incorrectly then advice may be given on how to work around it.

I wish to manually update my freeview channels from the Mendip Transmitter (to avoid the stronger signals from the Wenvoe Welsh transmitter).

Please advice me of the channels to select.

Can you point me in the right direction (web-site?) which spells out in laymans terms in words of one syllable how the different multiplexs are in/compatible. With the two tuners/drives on my TV how can I determine which channels I can watch and or record at the same time? Thanks in advance for your email. Alan Jones

Alan Jones: Do you have a Samsung series 7/8 with twin Freeview HD tuners? They are equiped with an extra tuner, but frankly, most people just watch using the main tuner, and record on a seperate box.

Your fine for Belmont or Waltham - just let the TV manually tune, and it should sort out everything for you (there is a 100 degree difference in the bearing). Since your in Boston, I suspect Waltham would be better for East Midlands news. You'll need to go through the manual to find out how to chose the secondary turner to record, and attach the right sort of external drive. You shouldn't need to tune into particular muxes at all. Frankly, you can see why its generally easier to use a seperate box.
