Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Stockland Hill transmitter area
I live in Weymouth and using the Weymouth Transmitter with my vertical rooftop aerial that has been installed for many years. When connected to my tv via an amplifier I have a good signal strength and quality on UHF ch 41 (92% strength, 100% quality on my LG tv using manual tuning) and get 15 programmes. On UHF ch 44 I get 70% signal strength and 100% quality and get 25 programmes. However on UHF ch 47 I get 0% for both signal strength and signal quality and so get none of these channels, which include the HD channels. Is there a problem and am I doing something wrong ? Any help appreciated.

Dave: Two possibilities spring to mind:
1. C47, which is the PSB3 or "BBC B" multiplex from Weymouth, is DVB-T2 whereas the other two channels are DVB-T. DVB-T stands for "Digital Video Broadcasting - Terrestrial" and DVB-T2 is the later version.
If on the manual tuning screen it asks you whether it is DVB-T or DVB-T2 then you need to select the latter for C47. If it doesn't ask you then it must work it out automatically.
2. This one only applies if it is a really old TV. Originally, when TVs began being HD, they were sold as "HD Ready". This caught a lot of people out because they thought it meant that the TV was "ready" to receive and show HD pictures when they began broadcasting. HD Ready sets were available around the time of digital switchover.
A HD Ready set can show HD pictures (such as inputted via a HDMI lead) but cannot receive them because it does not contain a DVB-T2 tuner. At the time, the DVB-T2 standard had either not been defined or was in its infancy. I think the latter may have applied, but the point is that back in the late 2000s or early 2010s HD Ready sets were sold. I can't remember the exact timeframe, but you get the idea that there was a time when TVs could show HD pictures but not receive them. It may be unlikely, being that it is so old, but I mention it anyway just in case.
