clive walker: You don't have a digital aerial as no such thing exists (an aerial is just a piece of metal and isn't analogue or digital). Retuning will never fix a problem where the signal is too weak (or too strong) and often just makes things worse by deleting channels which were correctly tuned to begin with. If the signal really is too strong then you should try fitting an attenuator to reduce the signal strength. If you provide a full postcode we will be able to see your predicted coverage and may be able to offer more specific advice.
