Rachel : Nothing for me even with a retune (also in HG2 but aerial in loft due to conservation area). We're not in the Emley Moor footprint area and Freeview predictor says we wouldn't get all channels anyway. So guess will just have to wait.

Actually I used the Emley Moor footprint map on this website and my location is dark grey as opposed to bright green. All the rooftop aerials nearby point to Bilsdale and signal was very good. Emley Moor is slightly nearer but different direction and I presume we're in a black spot for coverage from there. Freeview recommends Bilsdale for full reception of all channels at this location but not all channels from Emley Moor etc. Yes an outdoor aerial would be better and easier to reposition. Loft access is tight, don't know how anyone managed to get in there to install it. Will wait for Bilsdale to rise from the ashes. Until then, streaming via apps (not quite as slick as tuner, a bit clunky but it works).

Futile gesture but I suppose it ticks a box demonstrating that he's doing his job

Agree that having the aerial in the loft is not ideal, but unfortunately it's a requirement on new builds in conservation areas such as where I live :(

New temporary mast today at Sutton Bank has restored *some* channels for me (following an auto retune)
