Well well, I'm a happy bunny. The signal is now much higher on SDN (CH51) and ArqA (CH52), so they must have put the power up sometime between 10 AM and 9PM when I just checked.

Sorry for my ignorance...

Due to where I live, I am unable to get any signal from The Wrekin or Winter Hill and I'm hoping to receive BT Vision in the future.

BT say that they're unable to provide me with a service with the current setup so the options to me are;
1 - get Sky
2 - get Freesat
3 - point my aerial to Moel-Y-Parc where I should get excellent signal strength.

If I was to point to Moel-Y-Parc, are English versions of BBC, CH4 etc still available, albeit on different channel numbers?

Any help would be much appreciated.

@Chris, yes, BBC and CH4 will all be in English from Moel-Y-Parc, I know since I watch them from that transmitter. I get BBC1 Wales News though and ITV Wales News, instead of North West Tonight and Granada like I wanted. But I am on the wrong side of Moss Bank hill to receive the main Winter Hill transmitter in St.Helens where I live, so Moel-Y-Parc will have to do.
Cheers,
Alistair G.
