Sandy Heath (Central Bedfordshire, England) Full Freeview trans
Friday 7 January 2011 11:41AM

I live in Northampton I believe I am receiving free-view from Sandy Heath, my aerial is certainly pointing in that direction. I appear to get good reception from 3 rooms, bar my bedroom, whereas the "Waltham" dtv has th problem of picture breaking up. This set has always been a problem, is it possible its just a poor TV set? Can you advise what channel/mux I should be receiving for ITV broadcasts as this appears to be the worst out the lot. Sky3 is spot on. Many thanks

Many thanks KMJ, much appreciated.
I think I have also answered my own question. I have tried the same aerial socket (non isolated screened) with a cheap 5mtr coax lead to my pc in another room with a usb/dtv dongle - perfect, not a bit of trouble, as with my other tvs/receivers. I think the small Waltham dtv I have, is just poor quality. I had also changed the coax fly lead with no improvement. It will be interesting to see if there is any improvement after the switchover.
Once again, many thanks

I live in NN3, I thought analogue was being switched off today, but its still on?
I also thought the digital signal was being increased in power, but it seems no change there either?
