I don't seem to be able to get Sony Movie Classic or any other Sony Movie channels on Freeview from the Chesterfield transmitter. Is this a known problem?

David: Sony Channel, Sony Movies Classic and Sony Movies +1 are carried on the local TV multiplex, which is only broadcast in areas where there is a local TV station on Freeview channel 7 or 8. As there is no local TV station for Chesterfield, the local mux is not broadcast from this transmitter and therefore those channels are not available.
