Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Belmont transmitter area
Hello, my tv that has a separate digital box now does not receive BBC channels, neither does my main tv that has inbuilt digital. I have tried to retune both but still no joy. Our ariel is on the roof. We are in Keelby DN41. Any ideas? I can get BBC channels via freesat on the main tv.

Helen Green: Tests on your post code indicates good reception from Belmont, but as its BBC channels you are having the problem with this could be caused by either (1) the signal being too powerful as this channel (and only this one) is now on high power, or (2) your TV is not responding to the 8k transmission mode that Mux Ch22 is now operating on.
A good test is to try a set top type aerial to see if at least it responds, other than that trying a simple attenuator in line with the TV's aerial input socket usually cures the problem, these obtainable from most decent TV shops. By the way if you can try a set top aerial try a manual tune test on Mux Ch22.
