Rowridge (Isle Of Wight, England) transmitter

For years I've used a Goodmans set-top box to receive digital television signals.
Now recently the television image either freezes or will stay on one station, with an inability for one to switch channels.
Since then I have bought 2 new Goodmans GD11FVZS2 digital boxes to no avail.
I have also installed a UHF 0-20dB variable gain attenuator which didn't resolve the problem.
With further testing over the best part of 2 weeks I've tried to receive a signal from 2 local transmitters and have used different 2 television sets.
The total equipment used in various combinations has been 2 x TVs, 3 x digital boxes and 1 gain attenuator.
Curiously this problem only affects all BBC channels I've tried them all. All other stations work perfectly as they have done since the digital switch over.
My aerial is the same UHF situated in the attic where it has resided for years with no problem.
A neighbour has recently told me that he is having similar problems.
