It is a shame that this service is not in the South West, that is where I live, Bummer!

Re: Forces TV

@TORCHWOOD-HUB There is some COM8 coverage in the South West but it will depend where you live. You need to be tuned to one of the transmitters listed here

 

https://ukfree.tv/maps/freeviewhd/com8

 

so if you are in range you could try seeing if your TV/Freeview device gives you the option to tune to one of those transmitters. Bear in mind even if you are in coverage if your aerial is pointing the wrong way you may not get the option. COM8 is broadcast at low power as well so even if you can tune to one of the transmitters you may not get a good picture if any.

Re: Forces TV

@TORCHWOOD-HUB Yeah, if you can tune to Hannington or Mendip you might be in luck. In any case COM8 is only meant as a temporary solution, the idea is in the next few years those channels will move to the more mainstream multiplexes which should improve coverage.

 

You could try sticking your postcode in here to see what COM8-carrying transmitters are in your area, but again it depends on your aerial setup and equipment used

How would I connect or transmit to MENDIP?

Re: Forces TV

I have checked the area coverage, of where I live and I should have all all there channels: https://www.freeview.co.uk/why-freeview/channels#qj530jY0YSqtGbCu.97 , I did an auto scan, and once completed, I chacked to see what I had, but it did not show Forces TV!

Re: Forces TV

@TORCHWOOD-HUB I'd guess if you want to tune to a different transmitter you'd need to do a manual retune otherwise you're just updating the transmitter you're already tuned to. If you are using the NOW TV Smart Box I don't think you can force a manual return but most other TVs or Freeview devices should let you do it.

 

I don't use Freeview myself so I'm not sure of the best way to tell you how to do it, I'll tag @commanda6 and @schnapps who are Freeview experts and they should be able to explain.
