Are there any plans for the Nottingham transmitter to broadcast Freeview channels 106 BBC Four HD, 107 BBC News HD, 108 AlJazeera HD and 113 RT HD.? If there are no plans then I know I could turn my aerial to pick up these channels from Waltham on C31. Or would a masthead signal booster enable me to pick up these channels on from Sutton Coldfield on C33 without moving the aerial?

mr rob bennett: Firstly check all of the cables and connections behind your TV for anything that has become loose or damaged. Do not attempt to retune as this will delete your correctly tuned channels before searching for them again. Please provide a full postcode so we can see which transmitters are available to you, where you are in relation to the transmitter and your predicted signal strength etc.

David James:

It all depends on where you live, so please provide a full post code so we can see what the reception condistions are like where you are and whether there are any other possible sources that might work for you.

It is unlikely that there will be any more channels available from the Nottingham transmitter, it's a commercial descision by the non-`PSB broadcasters - if there are not enough viewers served then they don't pay to provide their services.

MikeP: My postcode is NG16 1BL. Which would be my best/easiest/cheapest option to get BBC4 HD - turn existing aerial to pick up Waltham, or fit masthead amp to pick up Sutton Coldfield

David James: According to the coverage checker results for your postcode, Waltham looks like a better option than Sutton Coldfield for your location. Unless you already have a wideband aerial, you would probably need to replace your aerial for Waltham with a wideband type (such as a log periodic design) rather than just turning it round.
