From Wikipedia: The channel had been available from launch on UPC Ireland, but was pulled on 22 March 2006. The channel had already been and remains available to Irish viewers on free-to-air satellite for some time, however it has not been listed in the Sky electronic programme guide since its removal on 25 January 2006. ITV3 took its channel number and bandwidth meaning all platforms could be launched simultaneously. - en.wikipedia.org en.wikipedia.org link icon read more about ITV3 on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).

Andrew: Whilst BN2 is a large area and signal strength will vary across it, the Whitehawk transmitter is near the centre. In which case, if you are receiving directly from Whitehawk and have good line of sight, then your receiver could be suffering from signal overload:

However, if you are using the transmitter at Ovingdean or Saltdean, then they do not broadcast ITV3 and the other Commercial channels. In their main service area, the Commercial signals will be weak or non-existant, so the above does not apply.

As I say, it is impossible to be specific because you have specified an area that has wide varying signal expectations.

Andrew: As you received ITV3 prior to switchover, you are clearly in an area served by a full-Freeview transmitter and Whitehawk would seem the most likely.

If this is so, then I suggest signal overload.

Before you look at the possibility that it is too much signal, check that it is tuned to C57 for ITV3 and not C25 which is Rowridge. Do this by bringing up the signal strength screen.

If it turns out that this, or any of the channels, are tuned to Rowridge instead of Whitehawk, then you can avoid the former by unplugging the aerial lead for the first 50% of the scan.

John: If you are receiving Freeview signals from Sandy Heath, the frequency for the SDN mux changed this morning (9th May 2012), so you will need to do a retune, after first clearing the channel list of old data. If you are using the Oxford transmitter check for single frequency interference on or around C62.

maria rossi: The most likely explanation is that your TV / box has picked up signals from an alternative transmitter during the retune, particularly in the case of TV3 etc which moved from mux Ch31 to Ch51.

Your post code, or at least one from nearby e.g: shop etc, is required to be able to give further advice as signal levels from alternative transmitters cannot be checked on without this info.

I am angry and frustrated over the loss of FREEVIEW ITV3 in the last week or so. I have tried the recommended retuning procedures without success and I don't know where to go to next. Help!

Brian Smith: Its difficult for anyone to offer advice when you haven't mentioned your location, (pref: post code or one nearby) as its not possible to assess the signal strengths expected in your area from whatever transmitter that might be covering it.

Maybe you could also mention the model number of the TV or box that you are using.

Sorry about earlier omissions which are as follows:

Postcode - BH23 5LW ; box model PACE DTR 230/24

Incidentally I am also missing Pick TV, which I use very little.

Thanks
