I notice that the Freeview predictor no longer gives Oxford as a transmitter for my postcode LU1 4EH. I have a wideband pointing towards Oxford, and can recieve all 5 multiplexes from Oxford, Crystal Palace, and Sandy Heath on the single aerial. According to the box, signal strengths are strong on all frequencies, which seems to contradict the signal strengths as given on the predictor. The predictor used to give Oxford, and the map used to show Oxford as covering the LU1 area, and as far as I'm aware, power has increased, which should mean the signal can be received over a greater area, not less. So why the change?

Checking the Oxford transmitter, I see that you show it as transmitting Central (West) on ITV1 + 1. Are you sure? Watching ITV1+1 on Friday night, I saw the Southeastern edition of Meridian Tonight (ITV1 showed the southern edition).
