Oxford (Oxfordshire, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Tuesday 17 April 2012 10:21AM

My aerial is on the roof and I used a signal strength meter for the best reception from Oxford. If I use 1 or 2 on the TV remote for BBC1 & 2, or 3, 4 & 5 for ITV channels I receive a poor pictures with only a 47% signal strenght. If I switch to 801, 802, 803, 804, 805 etc the strenght of the signal increases to 85% and the picture quality is very good. I would like to know why this happens and can it be changed as it confuses my father who is in his 90's and is this likely to change when Oxford goes to full power tomorrow (18th April)

When will the Oxford transmitter broadcast local news in HD. We find it irritating to have go back to SD for the local news.
