Michael Sutton: Your TV Licence fee has nothing to do with maintaining or repairing your aerial system. It isn't the BBC's fault that your aerial/equipment isn't working.

David Green: Sandy Heath has Com 7, so if your not getting it, are you actually tuned to a transmitter that carries it?

David Green: Tiny Pop has moved to the local TV multiplexes (not COM7), which a check on your postcode shows are not available from any transmitter at your location.

Why is it, that west cumbria was the first to get digital TV, but now there are less stations to view than most of the rest of the UK, as I have found in many places.

Peter Sampson: No where has had the number of available channels reduced. The 80 transmitters that got digital TV before switchover still broadcast all 6 main multiplexes to around 90% of UK households (and 30 of them have 2 extra reaching 70% of households). The other 1,000+ transmitters broadcast the 3 PSB multiplexes (which include all 4/5 channels previously available on analogue) taking coverage up to 98.5%.

Patrick: We dont have a postcode, so we have no idea if 60% is perfectly fine for your location. And 60% is evidently OK for you. The only problem is when the signal strength is falling.
