(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.

Bromsgrove - SDN moves from C31 to C41+, ArqA moves from C29 to C44, ArqB moves from C34 to C47 - note ALL OUT OF GROUP - WIDEBAND AERIAL REQUIRED

Mendip - MuxA on C62 becomes SDN on C48 (final due to Oxford end), Mux C on C56 becomes ArqA on C67 (moves again 28 Match 2012), ArqB moves from C67 to C52 (final due to Oxford end).

Cirencester (9am) - D3+4 moves from C30 to C29 (due to Oxford end)

Hutton (9am), Portishead (noon), Woodcoombe (9am) - BBCA moves from C48 to C59 (no longer used at Mendip), D3+4 moves from C52 to C62 (no longer used at Mendip).

Changes at Mendip allow COM multiplexes at Huntshaw Cross to now operate at full power.

Thanks for that Briantist. Yes I meant I cannot see the aerial as it is in the communal loft.

Trevor: I guess you are going to have to ask whoever looks after the shared aerial to deal with it, as the problem will be the same for everyone who uses it.
