We are using Freeview in a rented property at EX22 7LS, house name South Hockwill but on auto tune, the Panasonic Freview TV will only time to ITV Central, not South West. The BBC on channel 1 is tuned to South West. Do you have any suggestions for us to receive ITV South West?

Martin Matthews:

According to the 'digitaltrade uk' data you should be using Caradon Hill transmitter which only transmits West Country services, so it is likely that your TV is getting signals from somewhere else. Your aerial should be aimed at a bearing of 198 degrees. Look at https://ukfree.tv/transmitters/tv/Caradon_Hill to check which channels you should be using to get the services you want.

Yesterday (and today) Llanddona stopped transmission of 'Ch46' for a while (around 0700). Retuning yesterday promoted BBC 1 Northern Ireland (sic!) to the No.1 spot, delegating BBC (Wales) to the 800 series - but Sky News re-appeared on Ch132. Later in the day, BBC (NI) was reported an "untuned". Another re-tune returned everything to normal (BBC (Wales), Sky News on 132 and no mention of Northern Ireland!).
I'm just curious if anybody knows what is going on and for how much longer. And can I look forward to BBC (Orkneys) transmitting from the Llanddona aerial (:

Martin Matthews: I think you might be looking at ITV HD which carries the Central region on Freeview in the South West (ITV Westcountry West HD & South West HD are currently only available via satellite but will be on Freeview eventually). If you change to channel 3 you should have ITV Westcountry South West. You certainly aren't within range of any Central region transmitters.

Ralph Morris: Rather than anything happening at Llandonna, you were more likely experiencing lift conditions which allowed you to receive one of the transmitters in Northern Ireland at a higher strength than would be available under normal reception conditions. Retuning whilst this is happening isn't recommended as it can result in your TV retuning to the wrong transmitter as you have experienced.

The aerial is in the loft and we had good reception on all channels until quite recently. We now have several channels with either no signal or break up intermittantly. I have retuned from scratch without any difference being made there are no new electronic items in the home. All the channels are on Black Hill COM4 they are channels 10, 20, 66 etc.

Graham Jones: Your just 31km from the transmitter (Black Hill) - so its unlikely to be a problem with you getting a signal.

Check the signal strength - is it too high or too low. A month ago you had a retune event, and it could be that signal levels have risen at that point, and now its a bit high on some muxes, hence the 'no signal', etc.

But if you signal levels are low, then its certainly your system - so check for frayed cables, loose connections, etc.
