Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Wenvoe transmitter area
Up until yesterday and the switchover i could get all channels on all the TVs in my house. However now ITV3 and a few other channels are missing on my downstairs Digital TV which is the only TV connected to the roof aerial. I have re scanned and reset the Tv numerous times with no luck.
All other TVs in the house have had no problems with the switch over and are receiving all channels!
Any ideas or solutions?

r.gadd: Llanharan doesn't carry ITV3. You must be using a different transmitter. Can you provide a postcode to see which one it is?
It's most likely to be Wenvoe. The SDN multiplex is currently at pre-switchover power levels and on its pre-switchover channel - I think also on the pre-switchover antenna which is low down and has a restricted radiation pattern. Next Wednesday SDN and ArqA will move to their final channels, final power levels, and to the main aerial. You will need to retune.
In the right weather conditions, you probably get interference from Beacon Hill ArqB (also on C51) reflecting off the atmosphere. Normally it's blocked by the terrain. This channel clash will go away with next week's retune at Wenvoe.
