Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Hannington transmitter area
Rob: Some boxes have had problems tuning in both HD muxes, especially those using a Vestel chipset. Try doing a retune/first time installation with the aerial out, then manually tuning in the normal 6 muxes (not sure if you're using Crystal Palace or Haddington) using the manual retune option - do not tune in the COM7 mux!
See if that works, and if it does, then you probably need the software update that has came out for the Vestel boxes.

I live in Whiteley, Fareham and my recommended transmitter is Rowridge. However there is a large copse directly behind my house that is in direct line of sight with Rowridge, hence I get a very intermittent reception. I am thinking of pointing my aerial towards Hannington. Will I receive a strong enough signal from Hannington?

Craig: Indications are that's its doubtful as to whether or not you would receive a better signal from Hannington (@ 29 miles / 1 degree) as although the signal from Rowridge ( @ 15 miles / 200 degrees) suffers from the obstruction referred to at approximately 1.5 miles prior to your location, the signal from Hannington is seen to be obstructed in three separate places starting from just under 12 miles.
However as far as Rowridge is concerned, are you receiving this station on vertical or horizontal polarity?, because if its the latter then you should try rotating your aerial to its vertical mounting position to take advantage of the fact that the COM channels (SDN / Arqa / ArqB) are radiating on 200Kw on vertical whereas only 50Kw on horizontal, excluding COM7 or L-SOT which do not radiate on vertical, as apart from power increase sometimes vertical polarity signals can overcome problems better than horizontally polarised ones.
You could though try a simple test to see if any traces of a signal can be detected by carrying out a "manual" tune test on Hanningtons BBC or ITV1 channels, this achieved by entering BBC1 C45 (666.0 Mhz) into the box but NOT followed by pressing search or scan, because if anything is being received the strength / quality of the signal will be seen in the signal bars, if nothing appears then try ITV1 C42 (642.0 Mhz)
Your aerial is of course approximately 20 degrees out from being a proper rear pickup of Hannington and so that error has always to be kept in mind with this type of test, also if your aerial is vertically mounted for Rowridge then this test is unlikely to work anyway.
