Been having poor signal quality recently, tried a rescan and found 2 new digital channels in area CH 33 (Multiplex TSID 107c,ONID233a) and CH 36 (Multiplex TSID2011,ONID233a). Can someone throw any light on where I am picking these up from. Signal strength is good with little bit errors.

the best source is the Digital UK Coverage Checker at Digital UK - Coverage checker Put in your post code and house number. Then scroll down to see which transmitters are receivable at your location and scroll down again to look at the channels used by those transmitters.
The listings also give the compass directions for the available transmitters so you should check that your aerial is pointing correctly to the preferred transmitter. Note that aerials have 'side lobes' that also receive signals but not as strongly as tha main direction, so one of the other possible transmitters may be on a bearing to be received via a side lobe.
You should also check the signal strengths of all your multiplexes as that is more important than the quality reported by the TV. You ideally need betyween 60% and 85% as too little signal as well as too much sigfnal; can cause reception problems, see the article 'Too much of a good thing' on this website at https://ukfree.tv/article…d_f.
