Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Sutton Coldfield transmitter area
Mart G: First, check that your equipment can actually handle the new transmissions. Digital UK have two lists of equipment with known problems at http://www.digitaluk.co.u…ment and http://www.digitaluk.co.u…tnit .
If you are on a communal aerial system - a shared antenna - it may be channelised, only amplifying selected frequencies for distribution, and it will need retuning for digital.
You could now have too much signal, if you're quite close to the transmitter. If you have a booster, remove it or turn it down. If that doesn't help, add an attenuator.
Before switchover, five of Sutton Coldfield's multiplexes were on the same channels as Malvern's, so would interfere with each other if the relative distances were right - it would be down to the aerial to provide enough margin between the wanted and unwanted signals for the receiver to decode. If Malvern was too strong, 'Mark the Engineer' should have used a smaller aerial and added an attenuator, not tried to point an aerial at Sutton Coldfield!
The ITV1/C4/C5 multiplex is the one that was not affected, so this is unlikely to be your problem. If you never replaced your aerial for digital, it could be that the gain down on C39 just isn't sufficient - this is at the bottom of Group B and an aerial installed for analogue services would be Group C/D. The nearest source of co-channel interference is Hannington BBC One, so that can probably also be ruled out.

Mart G: I should have added, make sure you do a full retune - first time installation, default setting, full reset, 'virgin mode', reinstall all channels, it's called different things by different manufacturers - as many receivers won't pick up a change to a different frequency when you just use 'add channels'. See TV Re-tune for some product manuals and retune guides, or check the manufacturer's support site.
