k.flood: Does your aerial point east to Crystal Palace or west to Hannington?

Hannington does not currently broadcast a significant amount of digital signal to the east. You might get enough signal for it to work sometimes, but not reliably. A professional installer should have known this and advised you accordingly. The analogue signals will be coming in at full strength, because there is no restriction, which means that if you tried to boost the signal (or the aerial has too much gain) you'd probably just overload the amplifiers.

At switchover, digital signals move to the main aerial at the top of the mast (replacing analogue), and you're then expected to have a good chance of reliable reception from Hannington.

The chances of reliable reception from Crystal Palace are excellent both now and after switchover.

After only six months, I'd get the installer back in to correct it free of charge.

Our aerial is in the loft. As of 7th July we have not been able to get ITV1 on any of our televisions. Our TVs are analogue. Can you advise. There are transmitter engineering works at the transmitter but you do not state that ITV1 is affected in any way.
