Richard caywood:

Thanks for confirming that. I'd got that (in round figures) from the Freeview Detailed Coverage Checker. However, if you have a Group A aerial, whilst it will be more sensitive on the low channels, it will struggle with COMs 4-6 which, from Bilsdale, they are already weak for some spots in your postcode, and you won't get COMs 7&8. The odd thing is that Freeview predict quite good reception from Emley Moor (with a Group T/Wideband aerial) except some spots will struggle with COMs 7&8. But if you particularly want the Tyne Tees region instead of Yorkshire, you have to go for Bilsdale.

Leaving that aside for now, can you try the Bedroom TV right next to the Booster using a short Flylead from the booster to the TV - if you haven't got one, can you borrow one, and see what the Strength and Quality % are ?

Do you normally get LCNs (channels) 11, 12, 13, 25, 29 for example?
Can you confirm the Group of aerial that you have?

In regards too what channels I receive I get all except for PSB 3 bbcb. Basically no hd channels and coms8
From my reception.. this is because I am in a dip and my aerial cannot be guaranteed in picking up reception in a sw direction , this is due to high homes and surrounding trees etc. of emely moor transmitter

I'd deduced it was an awkward location! So if you could just try the bedroom TV next to the booster with a short Flylead.
