Hi all, I hope someone can give me a fix(for the tv).
I live about 15 miles north of Lincoln and although I didn't like it I put up with my local news comming from Yorkshire. A few days ago a black box appeared on my tv instructing me to re-tune. Being the good little boy I am I re-tuned. When I next caught my local news it was broadcast from the Newcastle area. Again nothing wrong with Newcastle I love Jordies but I would like news local to where I live.
I have tried to find out what my problem is and I have come to your site in the hope that someone will help.
Maybe my arial is lined up wrong or maybe I can manually re-tune the local stations. I don't know what my options are so any help would be appreciated.

Wow Dave that was some explanation expertly done thank you.
Earlier I looked at doing a manual search on bbc 1and it said it was on c26 so it would appear that it is picking up Emley moor and that is where we were getting our transmissions from previously. If I am correct in what you are saying I should unplug the ariel lead for the first 30% of the scan and that will cut out the Bilsdale transmitter, then push it back in and that should get all the remaining channels.
I live about 5 miles south of kirton Lindsey, west of the A15 so it all fits in with your explanation, though it does probably mean I will never be able to get the local news to where I live. Ah well at least Yorkshire is closer!
Thank you again for your response Dave it was very good of you kind regards Geoff

Did I get that mixed up!
It is c26. I believe I can do a manual scan I will try tomorrow on the channels you suggest as I am recording at the moment.
I do live in Harpswell and as you say it is under the "cliff" which is to the east of us so Belmont may be out of the question but I will have a look and see.
Thank you again for your help Dave
Kind regards Geoff

Hi again Dave
Tried pulling the arial lead for 30% and it has worked. It has now defaulted back to channel 44 and Yorkshire.
I had a look at the signal strength of channel 22 and it wasn't good at all, so that is a no goer.
So again my thanks for getting me back.
Kind regards Geoff
