we live in kingsclere 3 miles from the hannington transmitter
we can receive bbc 1 & 2 without any issues at all a strong signal with very ggod quality,however on itv the signal strength is good but quality is up and down all over the place for most of the time but sometimes it is very good. this is on all televisions.why the difference?
on poor channels the picture pixilates and breaks up

Stuart: You should check to ensure that the TV with the problem is actually receiving from Sutton Coldfield and not Waltham, as its indicated as being possible at your location, the way to tell being to select EPG 1 (BBC) and go into the signal check menu and observe the Mux channel number shown, which if Ch43 is indeed Sutton
whereas if Ch61 is Waltham, you could check ITV as well whilst you are at it, Sutton being Ch46 and Waltham Ch54.

If though EPG1 has vanished from the list then carry out a factory re-set followed by a re-scan and see what the results are.

Angelina: From Emley Moor, BBC is on C47 and ITV1, C4 etc on C44.

You will be picking up BBC North East/Tyne Tees from Bilsdale which is on C26 and C29. You may also pick up Belmont which primarily serves East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire but has considerable overlap to South Yorkshire and beyond. It uses C22 and C25 for BBC and ITV respectively.

As Emley Moor uses higher channels, just unplug the aerial lead for the first 30%. This will miss out scanning of channels in the 20s.

However, other channels from Bilsdale and Belmont are in the 40s, 50s and 60s.

Once you have it tuned, check that all are tuned correctly to Emley Moor:

PSB1 | BBC One | C47
PSB2 | ITV1 | C44
PSB3 | BBC One HD | C41
COM4 | ITV3 | C51
COM5 | Pick TV | C52
COM6 | Film4 | C48
