I have retuned digibox, after turning aerial towards Burnham transmitter, because we would like to receive BBC East.
Retuning still picks up Belmont transmitter (BBC North).
Can I do anything to solve this problem.
We prefer Look East!!

George Potter: Run the automatic tuning scan with the aerial unplugged for the first 25% so it misses out Belmont.

Note that Burnham only provides the Public Service Broadcaster channels (BBC TV & radio, ITV1, ITV2, C4, E4, More4, C5, HD and a few others). Thus, if you get the commercial channels which includes ITV3, Pick TV and Yesterday then you must be getting them from somewhere else such Belmont.
