The 1st phase of switchover is due on 7th sept. Our postcode is WF4. We have a new indoor loft aerial as our house is too high and too open aspect to have an outdoor aerial. We are 11 miles away from Emley Moor transmitter (you can see it clearly from our house). The TV in our front room receives all channels perfectly (we have to use a booster aerial in this room). The TV in our other room has been missing BBC1 and 2 on and off for about a month now. I have re-scanned, unplugged aerial and re-scanned, also tried manufacturers default settings several times. When we do get a picture it breaks up. Is there anything else I can do and will we get the channels better once the switchover is complete?
Thanks.

Hi jb38, thank you for your reply.
Our tv in other room is coupled directly to the loft aerial (which is brand new and was installed ready for switchover). Where as the front room tv just works from the booster.
Since the 1st phase of switchover on wednesday (I did a full factory re-set)both tv's have been working very well, with none of the above mentioned problems, until last night. We are getting 'poor signal' signs on some of the channels and were unable to watch a film on BT Vision as it kept losing signal and you could see ITV analogue on the screen at the same time. It was windier than usual (it is a very open aspect and is always windy)and we seemed to lose the signal when the gusts got stronger. Do you think it is down to the weather or is it as you say that it could be too strong a signal? Could we see an improvement after the final phase of the switchover, so should we wait and see? And what do we need to do if the signal is too strong? I have read other questions and something called an attenuator is mentioned, is this what we need and what is it? Sorry for all the questions but really hope you can help. Thanks.

Thank you very much for your reply. You are right we do have our box connected to another device, will disconnect and see how it goes.
