Beecroft Hill only carries PSB channels.

I have recently purchased a Panasonic DMR-PWT530 HDD Recorder. It will only show the selected channel number on the menu without any of the programme data. Is this because I am tuned in to the Beecroft Hill transmitter instead of Holme Moss?
Thank you for any assistance you can offer.
