By providing a full postcode (such as W1A 1AA), national grid reference (for example SE123456) or latitude, longitude pair (like 54, -0.5) this page will provide a map, terrain plot and detailed information of the location showing the UK and RoI television transmitters that it is possible you receive Freeview, Freeview HD, Youview, BT TV and Saorview from.
 

(Don't know your postcode? Find it at Post Office Postcode finder).

UK Free TV uniquely shows you transmitter coverage maps, aerial to transmitter terrain plots, the closest 10 mobile phone masts (for possible 4G-at-800 interference) as well as tabulated information (sorted by direction, by received signal strength, by frequency, by service names or by transmitter name).

Stuart Swaine: Nothing is messed up, Freeview HD is working exactly as it was designed. The Idle transmitter does not transmit the COM7 multiplex where BBC 4 HD is normally found. BBC 4 HD was temporarily moved to PSB3 (the multiplex which carries BBC 1 HD, BBC 2 HD, ITV HD, Channel 4 HD & Channel 5 HD) which is broadcast from all transmitters in order to provide increased HD coverage of the Olympics, with the moved being reversed earlier this week.

After a recent atomatic update of our Humax HDR-1800T our reception of BBC TV via Freeview has been changed from BBC West via Mendip to BBC Midlands. We get a message that BBC West is not available via our Humax HDR-1800T.
But the reception of BBC TV directly into our TV with the Humax HDR-1800T turned off is still BBC West via Mendip Transmitter.

Also we have another TV that is viewed via our Humax PVR 9300T. We still get BBC West via Freeview with this TV.

Can anybody advise why this could happen and what can we do to receive BBC West via Mendip via our Humax HDR-1800T Please?

Bob Faraway: If your Humax has a manual tune or manual scan function try scanning UHF channel 49 which should add back BBC West from Mendip.

Sue Johnson:

At your location you should be receiving the Freeview Lite range of channels. There is no fault indicated for the Fishguard transmitter, so the problem likely stems from your own system.

It is worth checking all the aerial connections are reasonably firm and in good condition. If you have a flylead from an aerial wall socket to your TV then it is worth replacing that, they are very inexpensive.

If that all appears OK, then unplug the aerial and perform a retune - it should find nothing. Once completed, plug the aerial back in and do a retune again. It may well find the 'missing' channels again.

Why does BBC4 HD show up on my Panasonic retune (47) with a quality of 10 but fails to appear in reality as 106, or as any other channel number? It was possible to receive it for the Olympics, but it then disappeared. I receive from Sudbury.

Peter: If you carry out a retune you will probably find that 106 disappears from the EPG listings, as BBC4 HD had been temporarily moved onto Sudbury's PSB3 transmitter (e.g: used by BBC1HD etc) for the duration of the Olympics to enable same to be viewed by a higher percentage of the population, obviously including yourself, but has now been returned to its previous position on COM7, Sudbury not being one of the stations fitted with COM7/8 multiplexes.

The nearest station to you transmitting COM7 being Crystal Palace @ 40 miles / 228 degrees, COM7 mux being on C33. If you wish, you could carry out a "manual" tune test on C33 but "not" press search or scan, because if any trace of a signal from C/Palace is received it will appear on the signal indicator bars.

Andy: Aerials of the portable variety are seldom successful even when used in line-of-sight situations such as applies to the location given, and if no signal is found using one "known to be operational" aerial then its unlikely to be nomatter what brand of aerial is tried.

However, the best method of signal detection is to "manually" tune the TV into one of the Mux channels used by the station, this being 24 (BBC) where reception from Rowridge is concerned, (@14mls / 235 degrees) the main point about the test being "not" to press search or scan after entering 24, because if anything is being received the strength / quality of will appear on the signal indicator bars, needless to say, this is the time to try moving the aerial around whilst observing the screen for any signs of a signal.

It should also be noted that this transmitter radiates on both horizontal and vertical polarities, the latter in some area's providing a better signal, and so try the aerial with its elements facing up/down, that is if they are not already fixed into that position.

Andy:

Further to that said by jb38, if/when you try moving the indoor aerial, please do it slowly and a little at a time.That is to allow your TV set software to respond to the changes in signal level and quality and report same on screen.

Note that Rowridge Vertical services do not include COM7 HD, COM8 HD nor the Local Southampton services. It does include all the other services.
