(For details of
Oxford switchover, including Ascott under Wychwood, Charlbury, Guiting Power, Icomb Hill, Over Norton see the switchover ends article.)
Tonight the changes below take place. If you use these transmitters, you will need to perform a a "first time installation" retune (sometimes "Factory Reset" or "Shipping Condition") on your Freeview box or televisions set at around 6am in the morning.
If you can't recall how to do a "first time installation", you can do this: My Freeview box has no EPG, is blank on FIVE, ITV3, ITV4, ITV2+1, has no sound or the channel line up is wrong
The changes are:
The Wrekin - SDN moves from C31 (and C49) to C41+, ArqA moves from C57 to C44, ArqB moves from C53 to C47.
Lark Stoke - SDN moves from C31 to C41+, ArqA moves from C57 to C44, ArqB moves from C60 to C47.
