john bosworth: If you have a booster or amplifier, try removing it.

Also try this - My Freeview box has no EPG, is blank on FIVE, ITV3, ITV4, ITV2+1, has no sound or the channel line up is wrong | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice .

Film4 is not and will never be transmitted from this relay.

HELP!
Today is April the 15th, and after 2 days of the final stages of switch over I have lost at least 20 tv and radio stations combined.
I have just spoke to someone at LG Customer service. They have looked into it and say that "Dallington park" transmitter have lost (6) mux`s which I guess is (manual tune ch55)which all the other stations are on, and is only operating on 2 mux`s.
If they can not rectify this then all the ariels in this area need to be redirected to the "Sandy Heath" transmitter. The current barring is 263 deg (Dallington) and for Sandy Heath the ariel should be pointed at a barring of 104 deg. Then I am told I will recieve all my channels back.
Will let you all know how I get on!
