Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Sudbury transmitter area
I also live in Southend on Sea SS0 area and have found problems since the Anglia switch over. My Aerial points to Sudbury and prior to switch over I received channel 12 "Yesterday". Since switch over I no longer receive channel 12. I have also checked in the 800 range and it isn't listed there either.

Pete. you're receiver is probably being swamped by signal from the new Relay at Rouncefall (PSB and HD muxes only).
You probably won't get the COM muxes back from Sudbury until 27 June 2012 - when they'll be increased to 100kW TX power too.

My aerial is on the roof but I have problems with my television which has a separate digi box, it has a very weak signal. This is NOT the case in other televisions around the house that have built in digi boxes.
I am on the Sudbury transmitter. I did hear a rumour that the signal it gives out will be boosted at some stage, is this true? and if so when? or should I go out and buy a new digi box.
Thanks for your help

Emily Dumas: Before you do anything, try the digibox in one of the other rooms attached to one of the other TVs and one of the other TVs on the cable for the digibox. If the problem stays with the room then it would be a wiring issue. If the problem stays with the digibox, then you might want to consider changing it, but please read on first.
Yes, the power of the weaker signals will be improved over the next year as other areas are upgraded (COM5 and COM6 in particular) but it may be that your digibox just cannot cope with the increased power from the other much stronger signals which now swamps the weaker ones.
Do the other TVs show a very healthy signal level, saying something like 100%? If that is the case, the solution is to weaken the signal to the digibox using a small device called an attenuator.
