My mother lives in Devizes and has recently had problems receiving her favorite TV channels. I suggested that she phone the digital switchover help line who told her the problem was due to the current area of high pressure over the UK. My daughter also checked on the internet and got the same answer.
Is the signal margin on digital TV that low? I recall that when digital and analogue were being transmitted together the digital signal was low, but I thought that after the analogue switch off the signal level was going to be increased.
Has anyone else had similar problems? If it dosen't improve with a change in the weather I will have to get someone to check for the more usual causes like corroded connectors on the aerial.

Best regards

Roger

Put post code in and see the coverage map.

I had a problem with our reception about a month ago. The comment from those who know better was that it was me. Our local transmitter always had funny moods.
Sunday and Monday this week it really got the hump and lots of people couldn't get reception - but nothing wrong with it still!!
