Where can I go for a straight forward list exactly what happens during switchover, in particular what frequency channels will carry digital from Hannington in between DSO1 and DSO2. I need this to use a manual rescan because the morons who designed the Freeview spec didn't even consider the possibility that some people might live in areas that receive signals from two transmitters.
