Excuse this if it sounds stupid....
Living in Shrewton, I got a digital aerial installed pointing at Mendip TX as this was ocnsidered stronger than Rowridge. With recent pixellations on some of the non-BBC. ITV main channels , do I now need Aerial re-alignement ?? to adapt to the Shrewton TX ?

Le Rhyff: You would be best off sticking with Mendip unless you wish to change regional programming.

Two of Mendip's commercial multiplexes are on low power and will remain so until 28th March, these being Arq A and Arq B. According to Digital UK Tradeview, the former is lower than the latter.

See Freeview multiplexes | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice for services carried on the affected multiplexes.

Shrewton transmitter currently broadcasts only analogue TV and after switchover will only carry the Public Service Broadcaster (PSB) multiplexes and not the commercial (COM) ones.
