Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Olivers Mount transmitter area
Neil Rowntree: that depends on the transmitter you're using.
For analogue TV, Olivers Mount is an relay of Emley Moor, for ITV and C4, and of Belmont for BBC One and Two (it receives the transmissions off-air and retransmits them).
Digital TV is fed via satellite and it's up to the broadcasters to decide which feed is transmitted. At switchover, Olivers Mount will continue to be fed independently rather than off-air - it appears in all documentation as the lead transmitter in its own transmitter group (it will have one relay, Hunmanby).
If you're currently getting Tyne Tees news, your aerial is probably pointing at Bilsdale, or one of its relays. Or, your box has tuned into Bilsdale rather than Olivers Mount: this can happen if the signal from Bilsdale is strong enough to be detected and the box stores the first version it finds, rather than the strongest/best quality signal. Bilsdale uses much lower frequencies than Olivers Mount.
You might want to see if you have another version of ITV1 somewhere in the 800s, and if that's less prone to breaking up than the version at 3. If so, next time you retune (next Thursday, to get ITV1+1), consider unplugging the aerial before you start rescanning, then plug it in when the search reaches about half-way through.

Des Collier: Whitehawk Hill is fed directly on the fibre network and it's vertically polarised.
The terrestrial network is fed by fibre on the main (full Freeview) transmitter, and a digital relay on the other (Freeview Light) transmitters.

I have been having problems off and on since December 2010 -YO14 0NT Olivers Mount transmitter. Now the problems have changed and are driving us mad!!! a constant cracking sound for past 6 weeks(like electrical interference) but only on BBC1 and only on the two flat screen LCD tv's not on the older tv. we are anologue reception here in Hunmanby and have a sky dish but do not subscribe to sky. If we switch over to sky the problem disappears.

Well as Digital switch-over approaches in a few months time, I would like some confirmation that we will definately receive the ITV/Channel4 Mux without it breaking up. I have read much about the switch-over and laugh at sales people saying you can receive all channels perfectly well from the Olivers Mount Transmitter in their endeavours to sell you some form of Freeview/set top box etc. There is a Road Show this Saturday in Scarborough and am doing some research into this problem before I speak with the organisers. I simply cannot believe the lack of information on any web site about this problem - you really have to search hard to find anything. My understanding is that once the switch-over is complete over a 2 week period in August, the Transmitter will then transmit at full power as it isn't doing at the moment because it's still concentrating on Analogue - correct? My research supports an upgrade from 100Kw to 1500Kw - an increase of 15x - this shows that on the ITV/Channel 4 Mux at least the people responsible for O/Mnt don't give a damn about Digital. particularly because of the lack of information about it. I haven't dared ask these "sales people" what the score is with HD Freeview! Please can some experts throw some light on the problem and give me some piece of mind that after August we can watch uninterrupted ITV/Channel 4 (and a whole pile of others) coverage. I live in the East Ayton area
