Pretty incomprehensible inf for ordinary folk.I was electronic tech person but still bemused.
Thought we were using Tackleston but now perhaps Linnet Valley.Seems to work OK without aerial heading change.
Also a analogue set still works but for how long ?

Norman: The likely answer is "never".
The Commercial multiplexes which carry ITV3 and ITV4, as well as others like Film4 and Dave do not have as wide a reach as the Public Service multiplexes. The Commercial ones operate solely to generate profit and as such broadcast from 81 of the largest transmitters (largest by viewer population) which gives them a coverage of 90% of the population. To transmit from the 1,000 or so small "filler-in" relay sites like Linnet Valley would roughly double their cost of transmission whilst only adding 8.5% of the population to their potential viewer bases.
The Digital UK predictor suggests that you might be able to receive the full service from Tacolneston or Sudbury. I looked down your road on Streetview and can see a few aerials on these main transmitters.
