Sue: Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections at the back of your TV and Sky box? Switching the Sky box off at the mains for 5-10 minutes, then turning it back on causes the box the reset itself which can solve many problems.

Does Belmont transmit channel 50 (Sony Christmas) as it only appears now and again when all other channels are good?

Manys thanks.

John Wren:

A lot of the Sony Channels are only transmitted on Local multiplexes see Channel listings | Freeview
There is a Local Multiplex at Belmont on UHF channel 32 but what the predicted reception is like at your location we can't tell without a full postcode.
Do you know what type of aerial you have? Are you receiving the COM7 multiplex OK?

All:

A reminder that there is a retune event on 4th March. The transmitter is likely to go off-air shortly after midnight for a short period. COM6 multiplex is moving UHF channel from C60 to C26. The Local multiplex on C32 is increasing power from 5kW to 10kW. People will need to retune.
The final UHF channels for Belmont in the order PSBs1-3, COMs4-8; Local; are as follows -
C22, C25, C28; C30, C23, C26; C55, C56; C32.
There are no further 700MHz clearance events for Belmont.

4th March - retuned TV for Belmont changes to COM6 (UHF channel change from 560 to 26) - all signals good quality apart from COM7 (UHF channel 55) very low signal?

All OK on COM7 on 3rd March but now very poor signal level? Has something changed at Belmont?


Thanks.

I can't find any reported problems with COM7 at Belmont. This could quite possibly be due to the fact that Waltham COM7 has moved today to this SFN channel of C55, so it can depend exactly where you are. We'll need a full postcode to look at the Freeview Detailed Coverage Checker to see what the predicted reception at your location is.

Chris.SE: Thanks for your comments Chris - the signal level gradually improved over the day and is fine this morning. I'm in Beverley, East Yorkshire.

Keith:

The Freeview Detailed Coverage Checker doesn't work on place names or partial postcodes, but taking a random selection of postcodes around the town centre shows reception of COMs 7&8 could be variable in some places with COM7 slightly worse than COM8. So aerial alignment and gain may be critical depending on your exact location.
