Chiseldon (Swindon, England) Freeview Light transmitter

Installing an aerial for digital reception in SN4 0HY.
Using a SLX48DW wideband high gain aerial mounted externally on a chimney stack roughly 10.2 metres above ground height.
Horiz polarity channels from only certain MUXes received
Vert polarity channels from alternate MUXes received
Unsure which transmitter the signal is picked up from, aerial pointed in general direction according to surrounding properties, which all happen to be vert. polarity.
Advice greatly appreciated on how to obtain the best reception, i.e. all channels.

Update on SN4 OHY aerial install.
Receiving channels on freqs 32,33,34 and 37 - 61 channels in total but did have 105 on one attempt though only a few channels have excellent reception.
This does not seem to be as suggested by referencing to Ogbourne St George Transmission data.
Is it possible I am receiving from Rowridge? as the freqs received would imply.
thanks for help!

Will Ogbourne St George be transmitting all freeview channels in the future?
I am still attempting to obtain the best reception and optimum channels in Swindon SN4 OHY utilising a wideband aerial currently in vertical polarisation.
Advise and help in setting up appreciated.

OK, so how about the other transmitters? Oxford for example.
Though I may not get all the channels right now once DSO has completed and power at its optimum I should get all of them, right?
Thankyou for your advise.
