Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Hannington transmitter area
Let's just clear up one thing - there is NO such thing as a digital aerial! Aerials are aerials that pick up RF transmissions be they digital or analogue, there is no difference.
The only things of significance about your existing installation is 1) it is old and therefore the downlead cable and aerial connections have probably degraded which will make a big difference to reliability of reception, and 2) what group is the aerial?
It's also worth noting that in some recent weeks there have been periodic weather conditions that might have caused intermittent interference and disruption to reception.
The other thing worth pointing out is that as the installation is that old, ie pre-DSO, if you are in a bit of an "awkward" area, you may well have needed a highly directional aerial to minimise ghosting, also pre-DSO when digital transmission started the signal levels were much lower than they are now, and ghosting is not an issue when it comes to digital reception.
Unless you are some considerable distance from Hannington and in a bad reception area, having an aerial with too high a gain can result in front-end overload which can also result in pixellation.
Do you know how far away you are? If you provide a full postcode we can look at the predicted reception in your locale.
The aerial you have mentioned is 1) a very high gain and very very high gain in its active mode 2) has very high windage - likely to put more considerable strain on the mast and chimney mounting, and 3) is very very expensive. Frankly, unless you are in a particularly bad spot (and you can't compare quality of previous analogue reception with current digital) that aerial sounds that it could be somewhat of an overkill.
Whatever new aerial might be appropriate, a new downlead that is double screened should be provided. Do you have any splitters/distribution amp supplying more than one set?

I live west of Guildford on the north side of the Hogs Back. As a result we cannot get reception from the Guildford transmitter, which is on the south side of this large hill. Our aerial currently points towards London and we pick up signal from the Crystal Palace transmitter. However we lose the signal on a reasonably regular basis - this appears to be weather related, especially on clear nights. On most occasions the signal strength is good. I've looked at the map for the Hannington transmitter which is NW of us and it appears to provide reception to the north side of the Hogs Back. Would it be worth redirecting our aerial to Hannington?

If you provide a full postcode, we might be able to provide some comment on that. The Predicted reception database needs a postcode. Precisely which signals do you lose periodically?
Which way do neighbouring aerials point? Are they more "complex" aerials (more elements etc.)? How old is your installation, it may have deteriorated?

The issue is most likely to be current weather conditions - temperature Inversion/tropospheric ducting to be precise, there is current some quite strong conditions affecting parts of the S of the UK.
It sometimes comes with high pressure How does good weather affect my television? | Help receiving TV and radio & Effect of tropospheric ducting on Freeview | Help receiving TV and radio
This type of ducting affects different frequencies by differing amounts in different locations, which is probably why you are only currently seeing an issue with COM7. It can vary by the second or be stable for much longer periods. It can also affect FM & DAB radio & probably mobile phone signals but not to an extent that people have realised.
As for the Quest issue, if it's persisting, it could possibly be a Hannington issue as I'm not getting that at time of posting (not on Hannington) but there may have been some connection with the Snooker overrunning. If it's persisting at Hannington, suggest you contact Quest.

Your website says there are no problems with transmission HOWEVER last night all itv channels
were UNWATCHABLE due to very persistent and heavy BREAK-UP and SEVERE INTERFERENCE',
can you explain for me please. We missed some of our favourite regular programmes.
