Hello
I live in Chudleigh TQ13 0PT and up until yesterday after we received the full range of freeview channels on our tv. Now we only receive about 20 channels covering the BBC and some channel 4 stations. I believe this is because we are now getting our signal from the Chudleigh relay station rather than the main Beacon Hill transmitter. Why has this suddenly happened? We have not changed or done anything to make this happen, but more importantly how do we go back to receiving our full tv signal from Beacon Hill? I have re-tuned my tv both manually and on auto to no effect.
Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Daniel Smith: Your equipment might have done an automatic retune, and found the relay by accident - in which case do a manual retune. But since you've apparently done that, check which channels/muxes you get. Make sure you know which transmitter your getting.

If your getting the muxes you'd expect to get on Beacon Hill, check which transmitter it is. If it is Beacon Hill, then something is up with your system, and you losing the bulk of the muxes.
