We live in Tring on borderline between Oxford and Sandy Heath transmitter, and used to get good reception from Oxford (to which we were tuned) before complete digital switchover in September. Now all our channel numbers are up around the 800s, and the digibox keeps freezing and so stops recording. This site says we should be using the Sandy Heath transmitter for our postcode - does this mean we cannot use the Oxford transmitter any more (i.e. things are never going to improve) and therefore we have to get someone on the roof to move the aerial round? (Don't want the expense if it's going to make no difference.) Are the 800 numbers worse for reception? Or is it more likely a problem with the digibox? Or both? Anyone else had this problem since Oxford changed over? I thought the digi changeover was supposed to boost the power/reception.
