Reception was good over the weekend so decided to do a channel scan, low and behold up pops the local multiplex, never any sign of this in previous scans so things are looking good. I have had poor to average reception since moving in to the house last August but it looks to me as if the problem has been mainly at the transmission end rather than house set up, although I did add the amplifier so that is a difference. Very happy at the moment, and improvement seems to be stable touch wood!
