Gaby: The commercial multiplexes from Oxford are on low power until 18th April so as to avoid interfering with another transmitter that has yet to switch. Until then you will just have to bear with it.

Hi all Live in Ballybofey Co. Donegal as far as I can make out that means I'm on the Limavady transmitter(Northern Ireland) since about christmas Film 4 Channel 5 and a few others have disappeared from my freeview. How do I get them back thanks in advance

Naoise: You're 40 miles or more from Limavady transmitter and the current Freeview transmissions are only at 800W. I think that you are lucky to get anything.

Perhaps the signal level is "just" above that which is needed to make your receiver work on those channels you have and has dropped a little on those which carry Film 4 and Channel 5.

Assuming that your aerial is pointing at Limavady (it should be horizontal and to the north east), go to the signal strength screen. Film4 should be tuned to channel 63. Channel 5 should be tuned to channel 58.

After switchover, most transmitters in Northern Ireland will be "Freeview Light" transmitters. That is they will only carry Public Service Broadcaster channels (which includes Channel 5) but not the commercial ones (which includes Film 4).

The three transmitters that will carry a full Freeview service are the same three that carry low-power Freeview now: Brougher Mountain, Divis and Limavady. All others, including Strabane, will be Freeview Light transmitters.

Help - have just lost Film4 on my humax. Am based in west reading, rg30 ? Have tried re-scanning, to no avail. Is this likely to change soon ?

Paul: Yes, you may have to wait for 18 April 2012 when the Hannington commercial multiplexes are taken to their full power levels.

I have a Sony Bravia and two other TVs in my house, all receive their signal via the same aerial & mux. Following the recent retune (22nd Feb) I have lost Film4 on my Sony TV while the other TVs continue to receive Film4. Can you explain please.

Peter Bayer: This type of problem can be caused by your Sony having picked up the multiplex film 4 uses from an alternative transmitter, but its impossible to give constructive advice without having knowledge of your location, (pref: post code) this to enable your reception possibilities to be checked on.

By the way this is quite a common thing to happen where more than one TV / box is in a property, and is basically caused by the sensitivity differences between tuners as well as other factors concerning scanning methods used.

I live in Walsall WS5 (west midlands).
I have a siginal boost and split and have multipal TV's connecting to it. All is fine and I can also pick up freeview HD. However my Sony Bravia at night times does not pickup film 4 (all other channels are fine). My other TV's are fine at night and pick up film 4 OK. Not sure why this is happending can anyone help??

Vin: Your aerial arrangement should (in theory anyway) be capable of feeding an over powerful signal into your TV's as you are only 6 miles away from the very high powered Sutton Coldfield transmitting station, and it could be that the Sony TV's sensitive tuner cannot cope with this situation.

"If" the booster you refer to is separate from the splitter then for a test try by passing it, but should it be combined with the booster then if its at all possible try connecting the aerial straight into the Sony's feed and check the results of this action, if it cures the problem then it requires an attenuator to be fitted in line with the Sony's aerial socket.
