Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Emley Moor transmitter area
I have an old Philips "ON" digital receiver which I received from the company which went bust some years ago.This used to work prior to switch over but now does not appear to update or receive a signal.Am I correct in assuming that these type of boxes are redundant now.

Coupland: Yes, these boxes only supported 2K mode and after switchover, all transmissions (except HD) are in 8K mode.
8K mode was always in the spec, the BBC were particularly keen on it as it allows larger single-frequency networks, but it requires more memory in the earliest stages of decoding so it was cheaper to make a box without it.
onDigital changed to be ITV Digital in 2001, and went into administration in 2002. So the box has to be at least nine years old.
