Gareth, I am thinking of buying a TV with Freeview/HD included. Trouble is my Analogue Aerial is useless, having a poor signal from Dover. I already have Freesat from Sky which is good but no HD?? Could I purchase one of the many Satelite Dishes and put this up alongside my Sky-dish,making it a separate supply to my FreeviewHD when it arrives here in Kent in 2012. Hope you can help!

Sam: I gather that you are on Mendip (320 degrees, aerial horizontal).
The Digital UK predictor suggests that you might be able to receive from Rowridge PSBs after its switchover on 21st March. The COMs increase power on 18th April and might be available to you (I say might as the predictor suggests that they will be "poor").
Rowridge carries BBC South and ITV1 Meridian. If you wish to retain ITV West, you could retain your Mendip aerial and have it diplexed (combined) with one on Rowridge (assuming that Rowridge is feasible). If this causes issues with the EPG and recording (due to using channels from different transmitters), you could use Mendip as your main transmitter. Logical channel number (LCN) 1 could continue to be BBC One from Mendip, but have BBC One from Rowridge on another LCN for use specifically to view regional news. The procedure to do this will vary depending on the design of the receiver.
On the other hand, if you can get all channels from Rowridge (after 18th April) and wish to watch Meridian, then the Mendip aerial will probably be surplus to requirements (I would keep it as a back-up) and you will be able to use Rowridge for all channels. Or maybe you could get all of Rowridge's channels, but prefer ITV West, in which case you could switch over to Mendip for its local programming (assuming that you've had the aerials combined).
PSB="Public Service Broadcaster" which is BBC, ITV1, C4, C5, HD services and some others.
COM=Commercial channels (Dave, Film4, ITV3 etc)
See here for a full list of channels which shows which are PSBs and which are COMs (indicated by the heading above each table):
DTG :: DTT Services by Multiplex
Treat the predictor as a guide and be mindful that the actual situation could differ. In particular, the prediction of poor reception of the Rowridge COMs could be as a result of Stockland Hill using the same three channels (but the same three as Rowridge PSBs). I'm not sure why it thinks that Rowridge's D3&4 (ITV1, C4 etc) on ch27 will also become poor on that date.
At the end of the day, only an aerial installer can tell you for definate what can and cannot be done. However, it does help to have done some research beforehand.
I would wait until 18th April before getting anyone in. That way they can look at what signal is actually available rather than trying to guess what might work when the signal level is boosted on that date.

I have two freeview TVs. The first gives me a choice of local region when tuning as I live on the borders of the NC, CB and HL regions. My new TV automatically tunes to HL which does not provide local news for my area.
Which frequency or channel should I manually tune to for BBC 1 in the NC or CB regions?
