Many thanks for explaining the situation.

You are absolutely right, of course, to say that the local transmitter has far fewer channels than the main transmitter at Winter Hill. I never knew that before today but, having checked the relevant link, I now see that the local transmitter is, in fact, doing an excellent job of transmitting every channel it has available and that my two TVs and DVR are doing an excellent job of receiving them - even though the total is only 20 TV channels.

Having today taken a short walk up and down the road outside my house, I see that some aerials are pointed towards Winter Hill while others are pointed towards the local transmitter.

Interestingly, If I cast my mind back 30 years when I moved into this house, I do now recall an aerial fitter explaining that the Winter Hill signal would be impeded by two large trees about 30 yards from the house and that the signal would be even worse in summer when they were in leaf.

We are at GL10 3BJ but receive our Freeview signal direct to the Mendip Transmitter. Out TV aerial is pointing to the Mendip Transmitter. Should our reception change in March 2018 please?
