Stephen P & Dave Lindsay:
THanks for your responses. I've checked the signal strength and quality meters as shown by the menus and the Quality is almost 100% and the Strength is about 50%. The error rate is "<E-8"
I unplugged the aerial cable from the wall socket and the Quality and Strength dropped to about 10%

Stephen P & Dave Lindsay: Some additional info:
Aerial is external, Signal Info: Network:London, Frequency: C28(530MHz), Modulation: 8K64QAM R3/4 G1/32
The signal strength is indicated by red/yellow/green bar and its just less than halfway along the yellow band hence my guess of 50%.

Dave Lindsay: thanks for the explanation.

Stephen P: Freeview was pretty much perfect before the analogue switch off.
I've removed the coax from the floor socket thats connected to the aerial and wedged it into a coat hanger (as a temp. measure) so i could hang it on the window.
I did a re-scan and an update scan and now i've got all my channels back i had before switch off. I'll try removing the aerial from the outside so just the coax is showing so i can plug the TV back into the wall socket so it looks neat.

Thanks a lot for your help. Its most appreciated and it saved me money as i was thinking that i needed to either get a new aerial or re-locate the existing one.

all the best.
