From Arqiva's press office:

Arqiva confirms that the Digital Switch Over process for the Sandy Heath transmitter group, serving Cambridgeshire, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire, has been completed successfully.

The three public-service multiplexes are being transmitted at high power from the main station at Sandy Heath and, for the first time, from three dependent relays at Dallington Park, Kimpton and Luton. The non-PSB multiplexes at Sandy Heath will move to their final post-DSO powers, channels and transmission modes at later dates.

Following switch-off of the BBC Two analogue signal on 30 March, the remaining analogue signals for BBC One, ITV1, Channel 4 and Channel 5 ceased by 00:01 on Wednesday 13 April. The new digital signals entered official service at Sandy Heath at 05:50, with the relays completed by 08:38.

We have three brand new TV's in the house. The main TV gets ITV3, ITV4 and Film 4 but the reception is very poor. The other two TV's do not have these channel on their main menu. This has all happened in the last seven days before that all three sets got all these channels perfectly. The aerial is only 3 years old. Can you help?

P Boni: "The commercial multiplexes at Sandy Heath will remain on their pre-switchover channels and powers for a period after digital switchover. SDN will then temporarily move to channel 31 (at 20kW ERP) on 31 Aug 2011, before adopting its final allocation of channel 51 on 18th April 2012. Arqiva A will adopt its final allocation of channel 52 on 23 Nov 2011. Arqiva B will temporarily move to channel 67 (at 20kW ERP) at switchover and then it will adopt its final allocation of channel 48 on 14 Sept 2011. "
