Rich75.Buckley (Bwcle),CH7 1SX.Sorry for not responding soon enough.Are you using the nearer Moel-Y-Parc transmitter (BBC1 Wales & ITV1 Wales) or the further Winter Hill transmitter (BBC1 North West & ITV1 Granada),or even both ? Judging by your comments you must be using Winter Hill as if you were using Moel-Y-Parc only around 8 miles from your location you would not need to use a new masthead amplifier that replaced your signal booster.If you are using Winter Hill try bringing down your now bedroom set,plug the aerial in this set then scan (automatic or manual) it should work then return TV back upstairs again.Or try rescanning with the masthead amplifier turned off then once completed switch masthead amplifier back on again.Give it a try either way !

I am likely to be away from my property on both switchover dates. When I return, will I be able to just retune at that time?

Martin Rosen: Yes, as its only really people who view on a continuous basis that have to re-tune on the dates changes take place to avoid losing programmes, although when you return you should first of all carry out a factory default re-set on your equipment to enable you to make a fresh start before re-tuning.

Hi,

We recieve Freeview from Sandy Heath but all TV's in the house "drop out" occasionally where the picture freezes and then returns a few seconds later often with the sound out of sync. We have a fairly high gain aerial, with a splitter/amp in the loft. The TV's all show a signal strength of 50 - 52%. How can I cure the drop out/freezing.

Hi,
We receive our Freeview from Hastings transmitter. However today we have lost all the ITV channels and are only able to receive BBC.
Does anyone else in the area have this problem today?

Bob: See
Digital UK - Planned Engineering Works


Hastings Digital TV is "Liable to interruption".

Looking at Postcode Checker - Trade View suggests that after switchover Heathfield will "Good" at your location. All others, including Hastings are "variable". Indeed, some of Hastings' multiplexes are predicted as being "poor".

According to this plot, you have clear line of sight to Heathfield (assuming no local obstructions):


Terrain between ( m a.g.l.) and (antenna m a.g.l.) - Optimising UK DTT Freeview and Radio aerial location


It's probably best to see how it goes, being mindful that Heathfield might be a better bet come switchover if Hastings is not perfect.

The switchover dates for Heathfield and Hastings are the same: 30th May and 13th June.

It's a lot cheaper than SKY Linda, why should it be free, analogue TV wasn't.
