Waltham (Leicestershire, England) analogue radio transmitter
UK Free TV shows the coverage area for a radio transmitter as a coloured overlay (orange for FM, other colours for DAB) on the grey map. We have computed the coverage by combining the terrain with the official radiation pattern. A single click will select the transmitter to view the coverage for a single site, and a double click goes to a page showing full details. Click on the buttons in the right-hand corner of the map to choose from different frequencies (or multiplexes for DAB).

Hi I live about 3 miles from the Waltham transmitter and have usually had good reception until DSO. Recently I have not been able to receive ITV1, Ch 4 and probably a few other channels.
I have tried tuning with no signal to clear the list and retuning with the ariel attached. I use a boosted ariel. TV is Toshiba Regza.
Any advice welcomed.

paul stone: I suspect you may have answered your own query.
E Yorks/Lincs is Belmont and your issue with the programme information (EPG) not showing could be because you have channels tuned from more than one transmitter.
If there is manual tuning then you may use it.
Waltham's channels are:
PSB1 | BBC One = C49
PSB2 | ITV = C54
COM4 | ITV3 = C29
COM5 | Pick TV = C56
COM6 | Film4 = C57
Belmont's are 22, 25, 30, 53, 60.
You may find that running the automatic tuning scan through with the aerial unplugged for the first 50% will do the trick.
Belmont's COM channels (30, 53, 60) are on lower power than its PSBs, and therefore you may find that even though the aerial is plugged in for them, your PVR doesn't go with them.
Once you've completed it, bring up the signal strength screen on each of the five services I've listed above and check that it is tuned to Waltham (for each one).

Your comment please
Paul Stone: If the receiver doesn't have manual tuning then it is more tricky.
One way might be to run the automatic tuning scan through with the aerial unplugged up to 50%. This will miss out COM4 on C29. However, Belmont's COM4 is on C30 so you will also have missed that one out so it won't be able to be put in its place.
The hope is is that 53 and 60 from Belmont won't be picked up.
Then, if there is a function to scan for new services (which effectively does an automatic tuning scan but without wiping what's stored) use it and hopefully it will pick up C29 from Waltham. Obviously it will probably find 22 and 25 from Belmont, but as PSB1 and PSB2 are already stored from Waltham it won't, hopefully, displace them.
