Mrs Humphreys: TBN has moved to the PSB3 multiplex which carries BBC 1 HD, BBC 2 HD, ITV HD, Channel 4 HD, Channel 5 HD & CBBC HD and can only be received on TVs which receive these HD channels. If your sister-in-law can receive those HD channels, she should be able to restore TBN by retuning.

I have also lost TBN and can i ask please until a few days ago i was getting the HD channels and that makes no sense because it says this transmitter does not transmit them, did it used to or could there be another reason? i dont get Forces tv so it would not be the mendips signal. Thanks.

Mr Castle: I think you may be reading something incorrectly as the information near the top of this page clearly shows that the PSB3 HD multiplex which carries TBN is broadcast at 200W from Kings Weston, perhaps you getting mixed up with COM7 which carries a number of additional HD channels but is not broadcast from Kings Weston. I can't see any recent faults being reported for the Kings Weston transmitter and planned engineering work would not be taking place over the Christmas period.
Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV or box? If you provide a full postcode we can check what the predicted signal strength is at your location. Whatever you do don't retune as that will wipe your list of correctly tuned channels making it much more difficult to tell when the problem has been resolved.

TBN is on the BBCB HD/PSB3 multiplex as StevensOnln1 has said, which is on UHF C46 at Kings Weston.
However there are some errors at the top of the page, some of which are common to all transmitter pages here, as it shows Shopping Quarter LCN72 still on PSB3 when it moved to ArqB some time ago.
See Channel listings for Industry Professionals | Freeview for a up-to-date list of which channels are carried on which multiplex. (except it still shows 679 & 680 which have now closed but seem to be still licenced).
The list doesn't correctly show the Bristol Local mux which is on UHF C31 at Kings Weston.
There's a query on the power for the 6 main muxes. The OFCOM 700MHz Clearance document shows the power as 200W whereas DUK are showing it at 250W. As already stated there is no COM7 at Kings Weston.
