Mike : If you have an aerial Mendip and one on Rowridge, but the latter's COMs aren't good then either combine the feeds with a diplexer or have a separate set-top box connected to the Rowridge aerial specifically for viewing of regional content.

The diplexer necessarily need not be on the roof. Having it behind your TV set means you can remove it easily if needs be.
