Live in Derby DE22 1FH and receive all channels on 2 TV sets from Waltham. Also have Sony DVD recorder which receives all channels BUT its EPG shows no listings for ITV3, ITV2+1, 5*, 5usa, Quest, ESPN, 5+1, even though channels can be watched.
Makes recording those channels a pain!
Any help would be much appreciated.

KMG: Many thanks for your reply. The aerial is faily new and receives the channels themselves without problems. As previously mentioned, it is the EPG on the Sony DVD that does not receive the listings for the programmes mentioned.
I'm afraid that I'm not particularly technically minded but will look through the user guide to see if I can follow your advise through that. Not sure what a SDN is?
Meanwhile any further help or guidance for idiots would be much appreciated.

Dave Lindsay: Many thanks for your post. Despite there being no EPG listings for ITV3, I have selected that channel (service) and a signal check shows RF Channel 29, Signal Strength 92% and Signal Quality 100% which would seem to accord with your post. Other services on that MUX are the same i.e, good signal quality/strength but again no programme listings on the Sony DVD recorder EPG.
Any help much appreciated.

Dave Lindsay. Many thanks for the advice which I have followed. Unfortunately, there's been no replies or suggestions.
One thing I have done is look at the Coverage Checker on Freeview.co.uk for my postcode and house number. Amazingly, this shows that I am NOT able to receive the ITV3 Mux. This despite me clearly being able to do so with a very strong and good quality signal!!
Could this have a bearing on the programme listings not being available for this Mux on my EPG?
If so, how should I go about getting Freeview to correct their coverage information?
As always many thanks for any help.
