Steve H.:

Your location is fine, you even have a choice of two Tyne Tees main transmitters!
I would expect your aerial to be pointing at the Bilsdale transmitter fractionally S of SE (bearing 144 degrees) and getting a Local multiplex on UHF C30 with the Middlesbrough local station at LCN7 in your EPG.

If however it's pointing fractionally N of NW (bearing 324 degrees) at the Pontop Pike transmitter, you'd get the Newcastle local station, multiplex on C33. Also Pontop Pike was on Planned Engineering last week with "Possible weak signal".

It's possible your set's memory needs clearing, I'd suggest you do a retune as follows -
Unplug the aerial and do an automatic retune which should clear all previously stored channels as nothing should be found. Switch the set off for at least 10 minutes.
Plug the aerial back in, switch on and don't let it do an auto-retune if you have a manual tune option.

If you're getting Bilsdale, the UHF channels are C27, C24, C21, C43, C46, C40, C55, C30
If it's Pontop Pike, the UHF channels are C39, C42, C45, C32, C34, C35, C55, C33
both in the order PSBs 1-3, COMs 4-7, Local.

For which programmes/channels are on which multiplex, see Channel listings | Freeview
