digital dave: Quite a few I would expect, this is one of the very few transmitter where the digital signals are stronger than the analogue services.

R Taylor: Probably an error in the box software, DVB-T2 is clearly 256QAM in the UK - see http://stakeholders.ofcom….pdf .

I Live in Flamborough and I would prefer news from the West/North Yorkahire regions. I am 18 mile as the crow flies from Olivers Mount. Can I pick up the digital signals from there (by re-aligning the aerial) instead of Belmont? Belmont is 80 miles away.

Andrew: I very much doubt it! as even Hunmanby which is very roughly in the same line between Oliver's Mount and you doesn't indicate as stretching as far as you, if though its easy to alter your aerial then its worth a try, you most likely having to use manual tuning on each Mux for a test, blanking the memory before doing so by scanning without the aerial being connected.

Hunmanby: BBC Mux Ch48 - ITV Mux Ch42

Oliver's Mount: BBC Mux Ch57 - ITV Mux Ch60 -HD service Mux Ch53 - ITV3 etc Mux Ch54 - others Mux Ch's 58 & 61.

Remember though that in both cases the aerial has to be vertically mounted.

I live at YO11 2XD very close to Oliver's mount - no more than 0.5 miles from the transmitter. I moved in 9 months ago and previous owner had had a new rooftop aerial fitted and a booster box! However reception is very poor on several MUXs and seems to be getting worse. I have BTvision. Last time I checked I got good reception on BBCA&B and COM5. COM4 & 6 very poor. However tonight BBCA is also breaking up. Any ideas?

Steve Cheshire: I think that your exclamation mark after the mention of "booster box" says it all!

See Freeview signals: too much of a good thing is bad for you | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice

It may be that the signal level going into the amp/booster is too high (for the amp itself), therefore reducing the signal level going into your TV by use of an attentuator probably won't cure the problem.

Is the purpose of the amplifier to provide multiple outlets? If so, then perhaps a non-powered splitter will be better.
