phil mcnaughton: If you mean UHF channel 62, that would be a 4G signal from one of the mobile networks.

I am in RG24 8XY
I have a new Humax FVP-5000T which I have retuned after getting a message that Quest was moving from channel 12 to channel 37. However it now has Quest on 801. I have retried several times with the same result although reception is fine. I have noticed a couple of other differences, e.g. I have:

Quest 801
DMAX 37
Home 42
absent from list 25

but your website lists:

no listing for 801
Quest 37
DMAX 42
Home 25


Am I tuned to the wrong transmitter or is there another explanation?

Roelof Pasop: That sounds like your Humax box has failed to pick up the recent LCN changes correctly. You should have Quest on 12, Dave on 19, Yesterday on 25, DMAX on 37, Home on 42 (the channel listing on this website doesn't seem to have been updated yet). Make a note of any planned recordings, then unplug the aerial and do a full channel scan which should leave you with no channels, then reconnect the aerial and do another full scan which should result in all of your channels being on the correct number.

Well True Entertainment has gone from 61 but my TV can't find it anywhere else!
Maybe they are only halfway though todays pointless LCN juggling excercise?

Brian Gregory: True Entertainment and True Movies have moved to the local TV mux. If you can receive one of the local TV stations on LCN 7 or 8 then retuning should give you True Entertainment on LCN 48 and True Movies on LCN 50.

@StevensOnln1 That explains it. For some reason the TV aerial distribution system in the building where I live doesn't carry the local mux. Luckily my TV also does FreeSat.

Ernest King:

I'm afraid current weather/propagation conditions mean that signals from other transmitters travel further and cause interference. If you have all the channels (LCNs) present in your list, then you'll need patience until conditions settle down.

If you are missing complete multiplexes, then try a manual tune for their UHF channel which you may have to do when conditions are more stable. Sometimes (depends on set) you may have to clear ALL previous tuning before doing retunes/manual tunes to get everything satisfactorily, do the clearing by an automatic scan with the aerial unplugged. HTH.

Dear UK Free TV.
The information here is a great resource but is it up to date (Aug 2019)?
I am in between transmitters (Hannington and Cristal Palace) and am trying to keep tuned into my local network Meridian. Cristal Palace does try and force its way through the back of my "B" antenna which is quite annoying, therefore I have to keep doing manual tunes, hence the great usefulness of your (this) web site. That is why I ask if it is fully up to date, for instance, I believe that tx channel 39+ is now channel 39? What else might be different?

Thanks in anticipation of your reply.
Regards John

John: According to Digital UK, Hannington is now using UHF channel 39 rather than 39+. You can check current allocations (and planned future changes) by entering your postcode at the link below and ticking the detailed view box.
