My mother-in-law lives in Harrogate (Yorkshire) and apparently receives her TV programmes from the Bilsdale transmitter....? She receives 'Tyne Tees' regional news programmes, as opposed to the 'Yorkshire' ones which she would prefer. As she is over 80, she has had a 'digi-box' installed by the 'switchover help scheme' people. She was advised by the guy who installed it for her, that when 'Yorkshire' switches to digital on Sep 21st, she may be able to get the 'Yorkshire' news programmes after she re-tunes the digi-box. Can anyone clarify or otherwise?

I don't know the answer to that question, and as I live in York, wont be able to find out till my next visit to Harrogate, (probably next Sunday 25 Sep).
Can you answer this question? Harrogate residents....do they/should they or will they, after digital switchover (21 Sep), be able to receive Yorkshire regional programmes providing they have the correct aerial pointing in the right direction (south'ish?)?

Thanks for that Mike (?). She doesn't have a 'box', she has a TV with built-in Freeview. I shall try a re-tune when I next visit her, probably this coming Sunday and see what transpires....? Shall keep you posted after that.
