Dee: You will get better services, but from Sutton Coldfield in two weeks time, with all services from Sutton Coldfield being at full power from November 2011.

The signals from Waltham are now at their final power levels.

I retuned after switchover and received channel 23 and Channel 26 with no problem from the Little Eaton transmitter. On Monday all the Channel 23 stations (BBC and BBC radio) were lost. Have been unable to get them back since via automatic or manual tune.
Another TV in the house fed off a boosted (digital compatible) aerial splitter is still tuned in fine. Any ideas ?

Peter: I would try removing the booster, as they often wreck digital reception, but otherwise please see Single frequency interference | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice .
