RICHARD STEHR: Those signal strengths are a bit low. Given that your neighbour is using the same transmitter without any problem, that would suggest that there is a fault with your aerial system, perhaps damage caused by the bad weather over the last few weeks.

I find this information utterly confusing. I need to manually retune my DVR because it prefers the Carlisle tower, rather than several nearer. Now that Really and ITV3 have moved. I have no idea where to. The old numeric list of MUXs doesn't seem to apply; so how do I find COM5 etc?

Panic over, I've found the numbers but perhaps they could have been a little clearer, as that's the essential information for retuning? Unless, of course, you are lucky enough to be able to use the auto setting and get 300 channels and gay rabbit shopping casino.
I am on the SW of York, my friend , to the East has to fight off tuning to Norwich, such are the idiosyncrasies of computer driven electronics.

Hi, I have called for my aerial man to come and have a look at what the problem maybe.
Have just retuned my TV I now find the majority of the channels have returned, but they are breaking up, whereas they didn't before. Is there any maintenance being carried out on the Emley Moor transmitter or any relay stations? Strange goings on.
Kind Regards.

Hi Again,
I have had no reply to my E- Mail of 9 April timed at 8.46pm.
I now hear that a new(or is it a temporary one) Emley Moor transmitter is being constructed next to the original one. Is this the cause for the loss of my programmes as I have just retuned my TV and the programmes have mysterious disappeared again. What goes on?

Richard Stehr:

This website does not reply to any emails. We contributors will only respond to posting on this site. If you are loosing programmes I suggest yopu recheck all your aerial connections.

The new mast is to be a temporary one for a couple of years while engineering work of a major nature is carried out on the structure and fittings of the main mast. It is not yet completed so the 'old' one is still in use. When the new mast and aerials come into use, you will not need to retune for that. It will still cover the more than 2m Freeview viewers.

COM7 Ch32 Emley Moor is not being recognised by my Humax box or Sony TV as T2 so I cannot recieve any channels from COM7 . This same problem happened a few months ago , I suspect something wrong with the identification of COM7 as it has a mix of HD snd SD channels. Last time this happened it was corrected after a few days, I hope the same correction occurs very soon, I'm sure I'm not the only person with this problem.

Have you retuned? I understand that the muxes might have moved. And Com 7 has/had HD and SD channels on it - you needed a T2 tuner to get them, whatever they were.

Thanks Mike, but I'm 100% sure that this is not a tuning issue, the receiver(s) are tuned to the correct channel CH32 , the issue is that the receivers do not recognise COM7 as a T2(HD) or standard DVB(T) broadcast they simply don't 'see' the digital broadcast on that channel at all, I'm sure it is an issue with the identification of the signal. The exact same thing happened in February and within a couple of days (after I posted on here) the issue was resolved.. until now
